Make all inc from RS.
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. Work YO into back of loop on return row to avoid a hole.

Make all dec from RS.
Dec 1 st on each side of st with marker. Beg 1 st before st with marker, slip 1 st on cable needle behind piece, slip next st as if to K (st with marker), K tog next st and st from cable needle, psso.
Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 97-105-109 (113-121) sts on needle size 4 mm with Merino Extra Fine. K 4 rows (first row = RS). Now insert 7 markers in piece from RS as follows:
M-1 in first st on row

M-3 in st 35-39-41 (43-47)
M-4 in st 49-53-55 (57-61)

Continue in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME on row 1 begin inc and dec as follows – SEE INCREASING AND DECREASING TIP:
INC 1 st after M-1 on every other row
DEC 1 st on each side of M-2 on every other row
INC 1 st before M-3 on every other row
INC 1 st after M-3 on every 4th row
DEC 1 st on each side of M-4 on every 4th row 3-4-5 (5-6) times and then on every other row to finished measurements (i.e. when dec on every other row no of sts will dec)
INC 1 st before M-5 on every 4th row
INC 1 st after M-5 on every other row
DEC 1 st on each side of M-6 on every other row
INC 1 st before M-7 on every other row.

Continue like this. When piece measures 13-15-16 (18-19) cm (measured from lowest point by M-2 or M-6) K 1 row from WS and then work next row as follows from RS:
* K1, K2 tog *, repeat from *-*, AT THE SAME TIME as casting off.

Back of hat = cast off row, i.e. 2 whole points and 2 half points.
The middle of the 3 whole points on the opposite side of piece = cast on row, sits at middle of forehead.
Sew hat tog, edge to edge along cast off row as follows: Sew first half point to one side of the first whole point. Sew the other side of first whole point to one side of second whole point. Then the other side of second whole point to the last half point. Now sew hat tog mid back – make sure to sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam

Cast on 4 sts on needle size 4 mm and continue as follows:
* K1, place thread in front of piece (towards you), slip next st as if to P, place thread behind piece again *, repeat from *-* across the row = tube. Cast off when tube measures approx 20-22-24 (26-28) cm. Make 1 more and attach strings to the point each side.


= sew a to a
= sew b to b
= sew c to c
= sew d to d

Verstehe ich das richtig: wenn ich die 4. reihe stricke mache ich die zu- und abnahmen der „2. reihe“ nicht? oder mache ich diese doppelt so oft wie die der 4. reihe? danke!

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 11:50:

Liebe Saris, die Ab- bzw Zunahmen in jede 4. Reihe entstehen nur in jede 4. Reihe, dh wenn Sie die anderen Ab- bzw Zunahmen in jede 2. Reihe stricken, wird es nur bei diesem Markierern ab- bzw zugenommen = nach dem 3. Markierung nehmen Sie nur in jeder 4. Reihe zu und beidseitig vom 4. Markierung nehmen Sie zuerst nur in jeder 4. Reihe ab (dann in jeder 2. Reihe). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jeg forstår ikke det hvor jeg skal til at strikke spidsen i panden . Udtagning på hver 4 p. Indtagningen på hver 2 p. Skal jeg starte med noget af det eller først strikke 2 p. Og så lave indtagningen . Pia

DROPS Design 13.11.2018 kl. 16:37:

Hej Pia, du tager både ind og ud på 1.pind ifølge opskriften, det gør du på hver 2.pind fremover. MEN efter 3.mærke og før 5.mærke tager du kun ud på hver 4.pind. Det vil sige næste gang du tager ind og ud på hver side af mærkerne hopper du over disse to udtagninger. God fornøjelse!

Benthe Helmer 15.10.2018 - 20:40:

Nu er den gal igen.\\r\\nNår der skal tages ind eller ud på hver 2. eller hver 4. pind. Er det så hver 2. Retpind, eller tæller vrangpinden også med \\r\\n\\r\\nMvh. Benthe Helmer

Benthe Helmer 10.10.2018 - 17:29:

Er det nemmest at sætte maskemakørerne i maskerne eller på pinden. Har prøvet at sætte dem på pinden, men det volder mig problemer, når den løse maske skal løftes over. Mvh. Benthe

DROPS Design 11.10.2018 kl. 07:58:

Hei Benthe. I følge oppskriften skal du sette merkene i maskene (og ikke på pinnen mellom 2 masker). God fornøyelse.

Lene Sørensen 04.10.2018 - 17:29:

Hej nu er jeg så på vild spor igen 😂der står at Man skal strikke 1 ret og 2 ret sammen så langt så godt men samtidig skal man lukke af ! ! Hvordan gør man det ? Venlig hilsen Lene

DROPS Design 05.10.2018 kl. 07:18:

Hei Lene. Det betyr at du strikker 1 maske rett, så strikker du 2 masker rett sammen, og løfter den første masken du strikket over = 1 maske på høyre pinne. Så strikker du 1 maske rett og løfter masken på høyre pinne over, osv. Her er en video som viser hvordan dette gjøres: God fornøyelse.

Lene Sørensen 02.10.2018 - 17:47:

Skal man blive ved med udtagningens indtil man lukker af

DROPS Design 03.10.2018 kl. 15:37:

Hej Lene, ja det stemmer alle ind og udtagninger er til færdigt mål. Se også vores video :)

Petra Pappe 29.08.2018 - 23:03:

Fange ich beim 5.Markierungsfaden erst in der 4. Reihe mit der Zunahme an?

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 12:34:

Liebe Frau Pappe, die ersten Zunahmen werden alle bei der selben Reihe gestrickt, aber dann werden die eine in jede 2. Reihe und die andere in jede 4. Reihe wiederholt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Rose 04.06.2018 - 10:21:

Marlies Hoffmann 08.11.2017 - 10:35:

Was bedeutet am Schluss der Arbeit "eine Reihe rechts auf links stricken"?

DROPS Design 09.11.2017 kl. 08:31:

Liebe Frau Hoffmann, vor der letzten Reihen mit Abnahmen stricken Sie eine Reihe rechts (= mit rechten Maschen) von der Rückseite (= Rückreihe wird hier rechts gestrickt), und dann noch 1 Hinreihe mit Abnahmen und alle Maschen abketten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Johanna 25.08.2017 - 19:15:

Zur ersten Reihe nach dem Rand: Beginnt man hier mit dem Muster als wäre es die 2. oder die 4. R? Also wird auch in der Mitte bereits ab- und zugenommen? LG

DROPS Design 29.08.2017 kl. 11:43:

Liebe Johanna, die Auf- und Abnahmen werden sofort bei der 1. Reihe glatt rechts nach dem Rand gearbeitet. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
