Knitting tension: 26 sts x 52 rows on needles size 2.5mm in garter sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Garter sts (back and forth on needle): Knit all sts.

Continue as follows: Dec 1 st at the right side on every 4th row and inc 1 st at the left side on every other row until piece measures 21-21-22 (22-22) cm. Now dec 1 st at the left side on every other row and inc 1 st at the right side on every other row until piece measures 25.5-27-28.5 (29-30) cm. Dec 1 st at the right side on every other row and inc 1 st at the left side on every other row until finished measurements. = 31-33-35 (36-38) cm. Cast off.

Assembly: Back of hat = the side of piece with 2 whole points and 2 half points. The middle of the 3 whole points on the other side of the hat = point sitting at the middle of the forehead.
Sew seams together with small, neat sts as follows: Sew tog back of hat by sewing tog the first half point with the first half of the first whole point. Now sew tog the other half of the first whole point with the first half of the second whole point. Now sew tog the other half of the second whole point with the last half of point. Sew hat tog mid back.

Jeg betragter mig som en ganske habil strikker, men denne opskrift har jeg måttet give op over for og strikket huen efter en anden opskrift, men med mange mange ærgelser undervejs. Slet ikke den sædvanlige standart af Drop opskrifter.

Anna 12.12.2018 - 18:12:

Buonasera! Per la taglia 3/4 anni del cappello la striscia misura 38 cm di lunghezza ma di larghezza quanto misura? Grazie per la risposta!!

Aira Mummo 27.11.2018 - 09:22:

Korkeus on sanottu senttimetreinä, vaan mitenkä pitkä on yksi kerros esim. pienimmässä koossa?

This is one of the most poorly written patterns I've ever worked on! I've knit and ripped out this hat twice, both times it's a struggle to understand and the end results are a disaster! I'm going to try one more time because I'm not a novice knitter and I don't give up easily. I believe the directions could be written more clearly as it's a very simple concept.

Dear Cynthia, we are very sorry to hear you have so many worries to understand the pattern. Please feel free to ask any question here or, for any individual assistance, contact the store where you bought the yarn - even per E-mail or telephone. This video may also help you to knit the hat. Happy knitting!

Bij het patroon van de wantjes dat op sokkenbreinaalden wordt gemaakt, moet ik 12 naalden ribbelsteek breien. Wordt hiermee het aantal gebreide naalden bedoeld (dat zou 12 zijn en dus maar 4 toeren) of bedoelt men dat je 12 toeren moet maken?

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 07:12:

Dag Cecile

Met 12 naalden wordt bedoeld 12 ronden, dus 6 ribbels (1 ribbel = 2 naalden).

Jeg har strikket huen (to gange) og var meget glad for instruktionsvideoer til hue og tubestrik. Nu prøver jeg at strikke halstørklædet og har fundet ud af det med at sætte hver anden maske på en x-tra pind/ sikkerhedsnål. Men hvad så, når man skal strikke maskerne på sikkerhedsnålen - skal man bryde garnet eller hvad? Kunne I ikke lave en video om hvordan man strikker halstørklædet også?

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 11:19:

Hei Helle. Ja, du blir nødt til å kippe tråden når du skal strikke maskene på sikkerhetsnålen. Jeg har videreformidlet ditt ønske om video av skjerfet til videoavdelingen. God fornøyelse.

I am following the instructions for a 6/9 month baby, but I am not sure if the 100 grams of Alpaca garn in the description are referring just for the hat, or if it is for the 3 pieces set? Thanks in advance for any support BR Emma

DROPS Design 23.10.2018 kl. 09:53:

Dear Emma, the requested amount of yarn is for the whole set. Happy knitting!

Maybritt 23.09.2018 - 11:23:

Jeg forstår ikke hvorfor jeg kun har 32 masker efter jeg har taget ind og ud på hver 2. og hver 4. pind? Hvad går galt?

DROPS Design 24.09.2018 kl. 09:35:

Hej Maybritt, du må have taget 1 maske mere ind end hvad du har taget ud. Se gerne vores video :)

Jeg fant feilen i lueoppskriften: "Fortsett å øke 1 m i høyre side på hver 4.p og felle 1 m i venstre side på hver 2.p til arb måler 15½-16½-17½ (18-19) cm" Min tolkning av dette er at 1.p er det ingen øking eller felling. 2.p skal det felles en m i venstre side. 3.p er det ingen øking eller felling og 4.p økes en m i høyre side og felle en m i venstre side. Måtte se videoen før jeg skjønte at jeg skulle øke og felle på 1.p
