GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows.

See diagram M.1. Diagram shows the pattern from the RS. Row 1 = RS.
Worked back and forth on needle.
LOOSELY cast on 87-93-106 (108-112) sts (includes 1 edge st each side) on needle size 3 mm with Alpaca. Work 4 rows garter st – SEE ABOVE. Work next row as follows from RS: 1 edge st in garter st, 0-3-1 (2-4) stocking sts, M.1 on the next 85-85-102 (102-102) sts, 0-3-1 (2-4) stocking sts and 1 edge st. Continue like this until piece measures 11-12-13 (14-15) cm.
Now cast off 30-32-37 (38-40) sts each side = 27-29-32 (32-32) sts left on row (= mid back). Work garter st on these sts, AT THE SAME TIME after 2 cm cast off 1 st each side and repeat the dec on every 2 cm a total of 4 times = 19-21-24 (24-24) sts left on row. Cast off when piece measures 12-13-15 (16-17) cm.

Sew piece mid back to side pieces, edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

Pick up approx 71 to 95 sts (divisible by 2 + 1) along bottom edge of bonnet on needle size 3 mm with Alpaca. Work 5 rows stocking st with 1 garter st each side. Work next row as follows from RS: K1, * K2 tog, 1 YO * repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, K these (= casing). Work 5 rows stocking st with 1 garter st each side and cast off.
Fold edge double towards WS and fasten.

Cut 3 strings measuring approx 200 cm each, twist them hard, fold them double and let them twist again. Tie a knot each end and thread through casing.


= K from RS, P from WS
= P from RS, K from WS
= K2 tog
= 1 YO between 2 sts
