BASQUE HAT
Shortened rows: To shape the hat and make it wider in the middle work shortened rows as follows – also see fig-1, beg by A. It is important to tighten thread when turning mid piece:
* work row to MT-4, turn piece, work row to MT-1, turn piece, work row to MT-3, turn piece, work row to MT-2, turn piece, work row to MT-5, turn piece, work all sts on row (= to A), turn piece, work row to MT-4, turn piece, work row to MT-1, turn piece, work row to MT-3, turn piece, work row to MT-2, turn piece, work all sts on row (= to B), turn piece, work all sts on row (= to A) *, repeat from *-*.
I.e. 1 repeat = 12 rows..


Hat: Worked from side to side. Loosely cast on 34 sts with 1 thread of each quality on needle size 5 mm. Insert 5 Marking Threads (MT) as follows: MT-1 after 2 sts, MT-2 6 sts from MT-1, MT-3 8 sts from MT-2, MT-4 12 sts from MT-3, MT-5 4 sts from MT-4 = 2 sts left.
K 2 rows on all sts and now continue with shortened rows – see above. Remember the knitting tension! When hat measures 48 cm at bottom edge (by A) cast off loosely. Pick up 80 sts along bottom edge on needle size 5 mm with 2 threads Alpaca. K 4 rows, P 1 row and cast off loosely from the RS.
Sew hat tog mid back. Sew a thread through hat at the top, pull tight and fasten.
