HAT:
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows.
NEW BALL TIP:
When changing to a new ball, split the thread ends, moisten and twist them.
--------------------------------------------------------

HAT: Worked back and forth on circular needle. Leave approx 40 cm thread end when casting on, use this for sewing hat tog afterwards. Cast on 34-38 sts on circular needle size 10 mm with Polaris. Work GARTER ST - see above – until piece measures 9 cm. Now continue in stocking st with 1 garter st each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! See NEW BALL TIP! When piece measures 21-23 cm insert 6 markers in piece as follows from RS: first marker after 4th-3rd st and then 1 marker after every 5th-6th st = 5-5 sts left after the last marker. On next row from RS dec 1 st to the left of all markers by K2 tog (= 6 dec sts per row). Repeat the dec on every other row a total of 3 times = 16-20 sts left on needle. Piece measures approx 28-30 cm. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts, tighten and fasten. Use thread end from beg to sew hat tog, edge to edge.
