When piece measures approx 15-16-19 (22-24) cm – adjust so that next row is from the wrong side and after 2 rows in stocking sts following 1 row with holes – knit 3 rows garter sts over all sts (remember buttonhole on right front piece – see explanation above.). At the same time, on 2nd row of garter sts dec evenly on row to 130-146-160 (176-192) sts – do not dec over the front band sts.

Assembly: Fold right leg double and sew inner leg seam within 1 edge st – Note! On the lower 4 cm (turn-up) sew with seam on the right side so that it doesn’t show when you turn it. Sew left leg in the same way. Sew together the trousers front and back within 1 edge st and sew the opening between the legs. Turn the 2 cm stocking sts at the top against the wrong side and attach with small, neat sts. – leave a little opening for the elastic band. Turn the turn-ups.

Now dec 1 st on each side of all marking threads on every other round – see Decreasing tips - until there are 15-20-15 (20-15) sts left on round. Pull a double thread through remaining sts, pull tight and attach. Fold the lower 4-5-5- (6-6) cm towards right side and attach each side with a couple of sts from the wrong side. The hat measures approx 14-15-16 (17-18) cm.

Earflaps: The earflaps are knitted from bottom up. Cast on 13 sts with ice blue and needles size 2.5mm and knit garter sts – insert a marking thread in the middle st. At the same time, after 2nd row inc on every 6th row a total of 7-7-7 (8-8) times as follows: inc 1 st each side within 1 edge st and inc 1 st on both sides of the marking thread (= 4 inc per row) by making a yo and knitting into back of yo on next row (to avoid a hole) = 41-41-41 (45-45) sts. After the last inc cast off loosely – earflap measures approx 8-8-8 (9-9) cm. Make another earflap. Fold earflaps double and sew to side and lower edge, there should be approx 11-12-12 (13-14) cm between earflaps mid front (sew earflaps on the inside of hat, 1-2 cm from lower edge so that the seam doesn’t show).

Brauche Tipp für die Mütze: nachdem man die Krausrippen beendet hat, mit Glattstricken weiterfahren. Wieviel cm stricken bis zu den Abnahmen? Es steht dort:" Wenn 13-15-16 (18-18) cm misst" bedeutet das, die Gesamthöhe der Mütze, dann hätte man nur ca. 3 cm gestrickt oder heißt das, noch 13 cm glattstricken? Das ist entscheidend! Wieviel mißt die Mütze in der Gesamthöhe nach der Fertigstellung? Vielen Dank.

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 12:15:

Liebe Cissis, die 13-15-16 (18-18) cm werden vom Anfang (= Anschlag) gemessen, dh Sie stricken noch 5-5-6 (6-6) cm glatt rechts (nach der Krausrippen). Die Mütze misst ca 14-15-16 (17-18) cm + die untersten 4-5-5 (6-6) cm von der Krausrippekante, die doppelt gefaltet wird. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Tanja Hoffmann 09.08.2018 - 21:20:

Mir ist aufgefallen, dass die Angaben für die Maschenprobe auf der Banderole ziemlich von der Maschenprobe bei diesem Modell abweicht. Auch meine Maschenprobe mit 33Maschen ist einiges breiter als 10cm. Kann es sein, dass sich hier ein Fehler eingeschlichen hat? Gruß Tanja

DROPS Design 10.08.2018 kl. 08:31:

Liebe Frau Hoffmann, die Maschenprobe auf der Banderole wird nicht mit der gleichen Maschenprobe gestrickt. Die Angabe der Nadelstärke ist nur eine Orientierungshilfe. Wenn Sie für 10 cm weniger Maschen als in der Maschenprobe angegeben benötigen, versuchen Sie eine neue Maschenprobe mit einer dünneren Nadelstärke. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Zitzmann 18.06.2015 - 09:42:

Ich stricke zur Zeit das Jäckchen und wüste gern: ab 16 cm auf 146 M abketten, soll das heißen, die Differenz zwischen Anschlag und 146M gleichmäßig verteilt abnehmen? Das wären in diesem Fall 35 M?

DROPS Design 21.06.2015 kl. 20:34:

Ja genau, es sollen 146 M auf der Nadel bleiben.

Anna 29.04.2015 - 20:08:

Det är ju rätstickning!

Annette Green 29.04.2015 - 15:10:

Det kan väl inte stämma att det skall vara 52 varv för att få 10 cm

DROPS Design 30.04.2015 kl. 15:41:

Hei Annette. Jo, det er rillestrik (rätst) paa en lille pind - og rätst traekker sig meget mere sammen end f.eks glatstrik (slätst)

Claudia 22.01.2015 - 21:59:

Grüezi. bin grösse 86/92 am stricken und nun am 1. ärmel. können sie mir den durchmesser des ärmels unten am bündchen angeben? er erscheint mir riesig und viel zu weit. passend für einen erwachsenen! besten dank!

DROPS Design 27.01.2015 kl. 23:21:

Im Muster vor den Zunahmen müsste sich ein Umfang von ca. 16 cm ergeben. Stimmt denn Ihre Maschenprobe im Muster?

Jenny Cyr 28.05.2013 - 12:15:

Bonjour, Je me demande comment faire les augmentations au dessous des manches? Je ne comprend pas le texte suivant...augm 1 md de chaque côté des 3 m du mileu sous la manche... Est-ce que c'est toujours à l'end, et si oui je voudrais que vous me précisez si je doit faire le motif ou toujours rester les mailles à l'end. Merci à l'avance de votre attention.

DROPS Design 28.05.2013 kl. 13:45:

Bonjour Mme Cyr, pour les manches on augmente 1 m avant les 3 m qui se trouvent au milieu sous la manche et 1 m après ces 3 m (= fin de rang/début de rang), les augmentations se tricotent au fur et à mesure en point fantaisie. Bon tricot !

Ienke 21.12.2012 - 22:47:

Het is een leuk patroon maar het lijkt me dat bij de beschrijving van de mouw elke keer dat er "tr" staat, "nld" moet zijn. Ook vind ik dat de bies in ribbelsteek korter wordt dan de rest in patroonsteek omdat het gelijk gebreid wordt.

Gerd-Hege 18.10.2012 - 20:22:

Veldig fint sett, skal nå øke under armene og er ikke helt fornøyd med økingen som står på mønsteret, øker på hver side av 1 merkemaske ,merkemasken følger deg oppover, menskifter fra vr til r ettersom hvordan det passer i mønsteret, på det meste får jeg da 5 vrange etterhverandre og ikke 9, bare et tips :-))

DROPS Deutsch 09.05.2011 - 08:42:

Sie können die Maschen natürlich auch auf der Nadel lassen oder auf einen Hilfsfaden legen.
