What does P tog the first 2 and the last 2 sts alternately mean? Does this mean in the same decrease row (going from 70 - 60 sts) or in the next decrease row (going from 60 - 70 sts). I would greatly appreciate a response. Thank you.

Dear Lynne, when you will dec the first time, work the first P2 tog in each P section around. When you will dec next time, work the last P2 tog in each P section around. Repeat these dec, ie you will alternately dec at the beg and at the end of P section. Happy knitting!

In der Anleitung ist ein Fehler bei der 12. Runde. Es sollen 6-10 fM abgenommen werden, es steht jedoch "aufnehmen".

J'ai tricoté ce joli chapeau et il me plait énormément et facile à faire

Emmanuelle 24.11.2010 - 15:43:

Merci beaucoup !!

Bonjour Emmanuelle, il ne faut pas monter des mailles en plus mais crocheter par moment 2 ms dans la même m tricotée pour obtenir un total de 108 ms au 1er tour, puis répartir 28 augmentations au 2ème tour pour ajuster à 136 ms.

Emmanuelle 24.11.2010 - 13:48:

Bonjour. Votre chapeau est très beau ! J'ai déjà tricoté le haut. Il me reste à crocheter la bordure. C'est là que j'ai un souci. Le modèle dit de crocheter 108 ms dans le rang de montage, mais il n'y a que 77 m dans ce rang ! Comment faire pour monter 31 ms en plus ? Merci !

Gick snabbt att göra och jag har fått många uppskattningar.

Leuk modelletje, alleen heb ik de rand smaller gemakt zodat ik deze kan omslaan, zit in ieder geval warmer en waait met een windvlaag niet van mijn hoofd!!
