NECK WARMER:
Knitting Tension: 10 sts x 14 rows on needles size 9 mm in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.
Increasing tips: Inc from the RS by making a yo after knitted st. On the return row knit into back of st to avoid making a hole. Make the next inc before the K st to alternate the inc to the left and the right of the P sts.

Knitted back and forth on needle from the top down. Cast on 43 sts on needle size 9 mm with Eskimo. Knit first row as follows from the RS: *K1, P2*, repeat from *-* and finish with K1. Continue like this. When piece measures 12 cm inc all P2 to P3 (seen from the RS) – see Increasing tips = 57 sts. After 2 rows inc all P3 to P4 = 71 sts. Repeat the inc of P sts on every 4th row 3 times = 113 sts. Cast off loosely when piece measures 22 cm.
Sew piece tog in the outer loops of sts to avoid a chunky seam.
Crochet borders: Crochet along the bottom edge with crochet hook size 10 mm and 2 threads Vienna as follows: 1 dc in first st, *2 ch, skip approx 1 cm, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from *-* and finish with 2 ch and 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round. Crochet a similar border along the top edge, but with 1 ch between each dc (instead of 2).

HAT:
Knitting Tension: 12 sts x 10 rows on needles size 9 mm in berry pattern = 10 x 10 cm. 12 sts x 16 rows on circular needle size 7 mm in garter sts = 10 x 10 cm
Garter sts (on circular needle): *K 1st round, P 2nd round*. Repeat from *-*.
Berry pattern: When knitting this pattern round on double pointed needles the RS of the pattern will be on the inside of the piece. The pattern is divisible by 4.
1st round: Purl
2nd round: *K 3 sts in the same st as follows: K1, P1, K1; then P3 tog*, repeat from *-*.
3rd round: Purl
4th round: *P3 tog, K 3 sts in same st as follows: K1, P1, K1*, repeat from *-*.

Cast on 60 sts on circular needle size 7 mm with Eskimo and knit 8 rounds garter sts – see above. Knit 1 round in stocking sts, at the same time inc 36 sts evenly on round = 96 sts. Change to double pointed needles size 9 mm and insert a marking thread at the beg of round (= mid back). Now continue in berry pattern – see above. NB! Make sure to beg each round right after the MT in order that the pattern fits. When piece measures 12 cm knit 2 rounds in garter sts, at the same time dec 40 sts evenly on the 1st round = 56 sts. Continue in in berry pattern until piece measures 16 cm. Knit 2 rounds in garter sts, at the same time dec 36 sts on the first round = 20 sts left. Continue in berry pattern until piece measures 20 cm. Now knit all sts tog 2 by 2 = 10 sts. Cut the thread and pull through remaining sts. Sew.
Turn the hat inside out to get the pattern on the RS.

The Pattern For The Hat States That I Need Size 9 Mm Double Pointed Needles, And The Knitting Tension For The Berry Pattern Is Given As Size 9 Mm, But In The Main Part Of The Pattern It States "Change To Double Pointed Needles Size 7 Mm" For The Berry Pattern. Which Is Correct, Please?

DROPS Design 23.11.2016 kl. 15:35:

Dear Barbara, it looks like from original pattern berry pattern will be worked with needle size 9 mm, English pattern will be edited asap. Thank you. Happy knitting!

Pat Hanson 23.01.2015 - 02:32:

WhT does NB mean and MT in this pattern. Thanks.

DROPS Design 23.01.2015 kl. 13:45:

Dear Mrs Hanson, NB means "Note" (= Nota Bene), and MT is for marking thread (or marker). Happy knitting!

När man stickar björnbärsmönster på strumpstickor måste det väl vara så att vartannat varv stickas med räta maskor, inte aviga?

Når dette mønsteret strikkes rundt vil retten komme på innsiden av arb

Hi! Regarding my previous question, I just realized that it is really necessary to use the double pointed needles. The use of the circular needle at this point won't work, because of the large amount of decreasing. Anyway, thank you.

DROPS Design 28.02.2012 kl. 23:18:

Yes, you are right, towards the end when you are decreasing it will not work to have the fewer amount of sts on a circular.

Lucia 21.02.2012 - 14:47:

Hello! This is a very beautiful hat, and I'll try to do it, but I have one question. When the instructions read "Change to double pointed needles (...)", is it really necessary to use those double pointed needles? Or can I achieve the same result by using the circular needle? Thank you!

DROPS Design 29.02.2012 kl. 00:05:

Yes, you need the dpn's at the end.

DROPS Design 29.02.2012 kl. 00:23:

Yes, you must use the double pointed needles when there are too few sts to fit on the circular.

Jo hvis du overholder strikkefastheden så er 43 m = 43 cm så målet stemmer! Sørg for at slå løst op (du kan jo evt slå op over 2 pinde) God fornøjelse!

Mette 27.01.2010 - 00:18:

Jeg synes halsen bliver meget lille? Jeg bruger ellers de anbefalede pinde og garn. Skal man strikke to gange opskriften og så sy dem sammen? Jeg kan hvert fald aldrig nogensinde få hovedet igennem når jeg bare har strikket efter opskriften og er startet med de 43 masker.

I steden for Vienna kan du bruke DROPS DROPS SYMPHONY

Eli 09.11.2009 - 18:56:

Hvilket garn kan jeg bruke for å hekle rundt med når vienna er utgått?
