Mittens:

Knitting tension: 19 stitches x 25 rows = 10 x 10 cm with needle size 4 mm and stocking stitch.
Remember needle size is only a guide!

Ridge/Garter stitch: 1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

M.4: * 2 rounds stocking stitch, 1 round purl *.

---------------------------------------------------------

Mittens: Numbers in () = men’s size. Cast on 42 (48) stitches with double pointed needles size 4 mm and off white and work garter stitch for 3 cm. On next round decrease 4 stitches evenly on round = 38 (44) stitches. Then work M.4 for 5 cm. After M.4 insert 3 marker threads as follows: 1 marker thread, 1 thumb stitch (stocking stitch), 1 marker thread (= in the side), 22 (25) stitches on top of hand, 1 marker thread (= in the side), 15 (18) stitches in palm. Continue with stocking stitch - piece measured from here. When piece measures 1 cm increase on each side of thumb stitch every 2nd round: 1 stitch x 5 = 48 (54) stitches. When piece measures 6.5 (7) cm place the middle 11 (11) stitches over thumb on a thread. Then on next round cast on 1 stitch over stitches on thread = 38 (44) stitches. When piece measures 15 (16) cm move marker threads in each side 2 stitches up onto hand (= 1 marker thread in each side).
Then decrease as follows before marker threads: Slip 1 stitch, K 1, pass slipped stitch over the knitted stitch. Decrease as follows after marker threads: K 1, K 2 together.
Decrease in each side a total of 2 (3) times on every 2nd round and then every round until there are 6 (4) stitches left on row. Pull a double strand through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. Mitten measures approx. 27 (29) cm.

Thumb: Knit up 15 (18) stitches around thumb and work stocking stitch. After 6.5 (7) cm knit stitches together 2 and 2 on next round, pull a double strand through remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. Work another mitten. 




DROPS Hat:
Knitting tension: 18 stitches x 24 rows with needle size 5 mm and moss stitch = 10 x 10 cm. Remember needle size is only a guide!

Moss stitch: Rows 1+ 2: K1, P1. Row 3: Knit over purl and purl over knit. Row 4: Knit over knit and purl over purl. Repeat rows 1 to 4.

Ridge/Garter stitch (in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round
Ridge/Garter stitch (back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows
Ear flap: Cast on 3 (3) stitches with double pointed needles size 5 mm and grey. Work garter stitch back and forth on needle. At the same time increase in each side inside the 1 edge stitch every 2nd row: 1 stitch x 10 (11) = 23 (25) stitches - piece measures approx. 8.5 (9) cm in height. Lay earflap to one side and work 1 more, remember to finish on same row of garter stitch.

Hat: Cast on 19 (20) stitches between earflaps at back = 65 (70) stitches. Work back and forth on needle: 3 ridges over all stitches at the same time as you increase in each side every 3rd row: 1 stitch x 2 (2) = 69 (74) stitches. Now cast on 23 (26) stitches mid front = 92 (100) stitches on needle - TAKE CARE do not cast on stitches too tightly! Then work hat in the round and measure the piece from here.
Work 1 ridge, then continue with moss stitch. When piece measures approx. 10 (11) cm (adjust to after round 1 or 3 of moss stitch) work 1 ridge and then knit 1 round at the same time as you decrease 14 (14) stitches evenly on round = 78 (86) stitches. Work 4 rounds moss stitch, 1 ridge and then knit 1 round at the same time as you decrease 6 (6) stitches evenly on round = 72 (80) stitches. Work 4 rounds moss stitch, 1 ridge and then knit 1 round at the same time as you decrease 8 (8) stitches evenly on round = 64 (72) stitches.
