GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows.
PATTERN:
See diagram M.1 and M.2 – pattern in diagram is seen from RS and shows 1 pattern repeat (first row = WS).

----------------------------------------------------------
BASQUE HAT:
SHORTENED ROWS: To make the hat wider in the middle to create the Basque shape. When turning mid piece, tighten thread before working return row to avoid holes in transitions.
Work shortened rows as follows – see Fig-1 (beg by A):
* work row to marker-4, turn, work row to marker-1, turn, work row to marker-3, turn, work row to marker-2, turn, work row to marker-5, turn, work all sts on row (= to A), turn, work row to marker-4, turn, work row to marker-1, turn, work row to marker-3, turn, work row to marker-2, turn, work all sts on row (= to B), turn, work all sts on row (= to A) *, repeat from *-*.
I.e. 1 repeat = 12 rows in the middle of piece, 4 rows on right side of piece and 2 rows on left side of piece.

HAT: Worked back and forth on needle from side to side. Loosely cast on 58-62 sts with 1 thread of each quality on needle size 3.5 mm. Insert 5 markers in piece as follows from bottom edge:
MARKER-1 after 32-32 sts,
MARKER-2 after a total of 40-40 sts,
MARKER-3 after a total of 46-48 sts,
MARKER-4 after a total of 52-56 sts and
MARKER- 5 after a total of 56-60 sts,
= 2 sts left after the last marker.
Work first row as follows (from RS): K12, P2, K2, P4, K4, P4, K2, P2 and K26-30. Work next row as follows (from WS): 26-30 garter sts, M.1 (= 20 sts), M.2 (= 6 sts), 5 stocking sts and 1 garter st (the bottom 6 sts = folding edge).
Continue in pattern like this, AT THE SAME TIME work SHORTENED ROWS – see above.
Continue until hat measures approx 48-54 cm along bottom edge (by A) – adjust so that last row is the row marked by an arrow in diagram. Cast off loosely with K over K and P over P.

ASSEMBLY: Sew hat tog mid back, edge to edge. Run a thread through sts at the top of hat, tighten thread and fasten. Fold bottom edge towards WS along folding edge and fasten – make sure to have an even seam.
----------------------------------------------------------
SHOULDER WRAP:

SHORTENED ROWS: To make the piece wider along bottom edge work shortened rows as follows (beg from RS - when turning mid piece, tighten thread to avoid holes in transitions):
* Work 2 rows on all sts, work row to marker-2, turn, work return row, work row to marker-1, turn, work return row *, repeat from *-*.
I.e. 1 repeat = 6 rows along bottom edge and 2 rows at the top.

SHOULDER WRAP: Worked back and forth on needle from side to side. Loosely cast on 52-56 sts on needle size 3.5 mm with 1 thread of each quality. Insert 2 markers in piece as follows (from RS):
MARKER-1 after 27-27 sts,
MARKER-2 after a total of 37-39 sts
= 15-17 sts left at the top after last marker. Let markers follow the piece as you go along. Work SHORTENED ROWS - see above (NOTE: work the bottom 4 sts in 2 threads Alpaca + 1 thread Kid-Silk, i.e. 3 threads, throughout), AT THE SAME TIME work pattern as follows - first row = RS: K4, P2, K2, P4, K4, P4, K2, P2 and K28-32.
Work next row as follows from WS: 28-32 garter sts, M.1 (= 20 sts) and 4 garter sts. Continue in pattern like this until piece measures 35-40 cm at the top (= approx 105-120 cm along bottom edge, the opposite side) – adjust so that last row is the row marked with an arrow in diagram. NOTE: Make all measurements when piece is lying flat. Cast off loosely with K over K and P over P.
Sew shoulder wrap tog mid back, edge to edge.

Bonjour, pour les diagrammes, je sais que je dois commencer la lecture par le bas mais comme ils ne sont pas chiffrés sur les côtés, je dois commencer par la gauche ou la droite? Merci à l’avance.

DROPS Design 18.10.2018 kl. 10:36:

Bonjour, verrez la lecon intitulee Comment lire les diagrammes des points fantaisie dans les explications?. Bon travail!

Lisa 13.10.2018 - 06:32:

Can someone please help me with some simple knitting language for knitting this hat, I don’t understand diagram 1 or the short rows, Brenda if you still visit this site, please send me your written instructions or anyone else who can help. Thanks very much.

DROPS Design 13.10.2018 kl. 09:10:

Dear Lisa, unfortunately we cannot provide written out instructions for this pattern. However, there are detailed desciptions for each symbol of the diagram, and there are videos to help you along (you can find the links just below th picture): Also,if you still need help, you can ask fo personal assistance in the store you bought your DROPS yarn from. Happy Knitting.

Bonnet: Dans la version française, il y a une erreur au 1er rang: 12 m end,...2 m end, 2 m end (au lieu de 2 m env), 23-30 m end. Bonnet: On indique 100 g de Alpaca et 50 g (au lieu de 100 g) de Kid-silk.

DROPS Design 04.01.2018 kl. 15:17:

Bonjour Mme Dumouchel, merci pour votre retour, le bonnet a été corrigé. La quantité en revanche est juste, il faut bien 100 g en Alpaca (= 2 pelotes de 50 g) et 50 g Kid-Silk (= 2 pelotes de 25 g). Bon tricot!

Brenda 24.06.2017 - 22:22:

I wrote out the directions to this pattern. I also added some help ideas with a picture. Not sure how to down load it in here. Can we download pictures? If not if any one wants the pattern please write me.

DROPS Design 26.06.2017 kl. 09:00:

Dear Brenda, you can print both picture and pattern, to download them you can use a virtual printer. Happy knitting!

Where can I buy these address?

DROPS Design 19.05.2017 kl. 09:21:

Dear Mrs Wetmore, please click here to find a list of DROPS retailers. Happy knitting!

Elena 01.02.2017 - 16:33:

Salve! Bellissimo modello, mi sta venendo molto bene, ma nelle spiegazioni dice di lavorare insieme i due tipi di filato, ma di uno dice che ne servono 50 gr e dell'altro 100gr , se li lavoro insieme uno mi finisce prima dell'altro... Ho capito male?

DROPS Design 01.02.2017 kl. 16:49:

Buongiorno Elena. Deve guardare la quantità di metri nel gomitolo. Alpaca si presenta in gomitoli di 167 metri per 50 gr; kid Silk in gomitoli di 200 metri per 25 gr. Quindi 100 gr di alpaca corrispondono a 167x2= 334 metri e per avere abbastanza Kid Silk deve usare 2 gomitoli. Le avanzerà un po’ di Kid Silk. Buon lavoro!

Zarkout 11.01.2017 - 22:24:

Bonjour, j'aime beaucoup ce beret mais j'ai du mal que les mailles où il faut réaliser le raccourci soit les mêmes que pour les torsades... Merci

DROPS Design 12.01.2017 kl. 11:32:

Bonjour Mme Zarkout, les torsades se tricotent en début de rang sur l'endroit, et les rangs raccourcis se font en même temps comme indiqué dans les explications et le schéma (1er rang = sur l'endroit). Bon tricot!

Roberta 04.12.2016 - 22:35:

Buonasera, non capisco come lavorare il basco al ferro num. 4 e anche tutti gli altri ferri di ritorno. Dritti o rovesci? Grazie

DROPS Design 04.12.2016 kl. 22:47:

Buonasera Roberta, il 4° f del basco è il 3° f del motivo e si lavora in questo modo per la taglia S/M: 26 m dir, 4 m dir, 4 m rov, 4 m dir, 4 m rov, 4 m dir, 6 m rov, 5 m rov, 1 m dir. Ci riscriva se è ancora in difficoltà. Buon lavoro!

Cat 14.06.2016 - 22:03:

Do you only knit one short row on each row?

Cat 13.06.2016 - 21:24:

DROPS Design 14.06.2016 kl. 09:27:

Dear Cat, you work short rows to markers as explained under "shortened rows" - see also fig.1 at the bottom of the page, numbers 1-5 are for markers. Happy knitting!
