Round 8: * 1 hdc in each of the next 6 hdc, 2 hdc in the next hdc *, repeat * - * = 64 hdc
Rounds 9-12: 1 hdc in each hdc = 64 hdc.
Round 13: * 6 hdc, then crochet the 7th and 8th hdc together (see decreasing tips above) *, repeat * - * = 56 hdc.
Round 14: * 5 hdc, then crochet the 6th and 7th hdc together *, repeat * - * = 48 hdc.
Round 15: * 4 hdc, then crochet the 5th and 6th hdc together *, repeat * - * = 40 hdc.

Round 1: 1 hdc in each st = 18 hdc.
Rounds 2-4: turn the work, ch 2, crochet together the next 2 hdc (see instructions above), 1 hdc in each hdc to last 2 hdc, crochet these together = 14 hdc.
Round 5: 1 row sc around edge of cap and brim (1 sc in each st).
Decorative stripes: Place a marker at each side of cap in the 16th row. 1 sl st in the st with the marker, make st approx. 1 - 1.5 cm long, 1 sl st in row 15, make st approx. 1 - 1.5 cm long, 1 sl st in row 14 – continue in this manner up to top of cap and down the other side.

DROPS Design 16.04.2017 kl. 20:02:

Chere Evelyne! Les explications pour la casquette vous trouverez entre les explications pour la veste et l'echarpe. Cliquez ICI. Bon tricot!

Angel 28.02.2016 - 12:34:

I love the beautiful drop design patterns and have been looking at them for years wanting to give them a try but as I knit from UK patterns and not a super experienced knitter I get put off by the pattern format and the wording for example I. Have only just discovered bind means casting off. Does any one else have this issue?

Judy Tarter 07.06.2015 - 04:31:

Is the collar knitted separate from the cardigan?

DROPS Design 08.06.2015 kl. 08:25:

Dear Mrs Tarter, the collar is worked over the sts remaining on front piece after you bind off the sts for shoulder. The collar is worked almost as in the video below + work here in stocking st with short rows to get the correct shape. Happy knitting!

Judy Tarter 07.06.2015 - 04:27:

I am ready to do the collar and am totally lost. Could I have easier directions. I consider myself an experienced knitter and am using beautiful eskimo yarn so I hate to give up making the cardigan. Thanks for any help you can give!!!

DROPS Design 08.06.2015 kl. 08:22:

Dear Mrs Tarter, after binding off the sts for shoulder, you continue back and forth in short rows over the 24-28 remaining sts for collar: 2 rows over all sts then *2 rows over the first 18-21 sts towards mid front, 2 rows over all sts* repeat from *-* until collar measures 6-7 from the shoulder and 12-14 cm towards midfront. Happy knitting!

Ja, vielen Dank, aber nun weiß ich immer noch nicht wo ich anfangen soll mit dem abketten, dort steht nun für die Armkugel abketten, aber nicht auf welcher Seite, von beiden Seiten, Mitte, oder wo?

DROPS Design 27.09.2013 kl. 16:40:

Liebe Christine, für die Armkugel wird immer an beiden Seiten abgekettet.

Christine Runte 26.09.2013 - 21:11:

Nach 48-48-48-46-45 cm, bei jeder 2. R. gegen die Schulter abk.: 3 M. 1 Mal, 2 M. 1-1-2-2-2 Mal und 1 M. 1-1-2-3-4 Mal, weiter, auf beiden Seien je 2 M. abk. bis die Arbeit 55-56-57-57-57 cm misst, danach 3 M. auf beiden Seiten abk. Die restlichen M. nach ca. 56-57-58-58-58 cm abk. Ich verstehe das leider nicht, wo kette ich denn gegen die Schulter ab, mache ich das auch auf beiden Seiten oder in der Mitte vom Ärmel?

DROPS Design 27.09.2013 kl. 08:44:

Liebe Christine, die Anleitung war wirklich etwas unverständlich. Wir überarbeiten sie gleich. Entschuldigung für die Umstände.

Randi Rasmussen 08.11.2012 - 23:55:

Hei! Oppskriften til lua her er helt lik lueoppskrift nr 93-22. I begge står det at 8 halvstaver blir ca 10 cm i bredden - men skal det bli like mye når det brukes forskjellig heklenål (hhv. 6 og 8)? Og dersom jeg ikke får 10 cm ut av 8 halvstaver, men ca 6 cm, bør jeg da bytte garn eller heklenål, eller hvordan løses problemet uten at dette blir en barnelue? Takknemlig for svar=)

DROPS Design 03.12.2012 kl. 09:49:

Hej Randi. Du har helt ret, det skal vaere heklenål 8 på begge mönstre. Vi har rettet. Tak.

Hoi. Je hebt in totaal 28 st op de nld voor de kraag. Vervolgens moet u de kraag breien met verkorte naalden als volgt: * brei 2 nld op de eerste 18-19-20-20-21 st aan het middenvoor, en brei nog 2 nld over alle st...*. Herhaal *-*. Dwz, eerst 2 nld over de eerste 21 st, vervolgens 2 nld over alle 28 st. Gr. Tine

Bianca 18.11.2010 - 02:21:

Ik ben van plan deze jas te breien zou er in makkelijke taal uitgelegd kunnen worden wat er met de kraag bedoeld wordt als men spreekt over: de kraag over 21 steken breien, terwijl de kraag uit 28 steken bestaat!? "Help...een grote Drops bewonderaar!!!!" (keep up the good work!)
