GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):

PATTERN:
See diagram M.1 and M.2. Diagram shows the pattern from RS.

--------------------------------------------------------
HAT:
First work bottom edge back and forth on needle, then pick up sts in edge and continue in the round towards top of hat.

EDGE:
Worked back and forth on 2 double pointed needles from mid back to mid back.
Cast on 23 sts on needle size 4 mm with Classic Alpaca or Puna. K 1 row from WS. NOTE: Work the bottom st (= last st on first row) in double thread throughout to make the edge firmer, i.e. have an extra ball of yarn and use this only for this st.
Work next row as follows (from RS): 2 GARTER STS – see above - P3, inc 1 st in next st and K both sts, K1, P3, K1, inc 1 st in each of the next 2 sts and K all 4 sts, K1, P3, K1, inc 1 st in next st and K both sts, P3 and 1 garter st = 27 sts. Continue as follows: 1 garter st, M.1 (first row = WS) and 2 garter sts (= towards bottom edge). Continue in pattern like this until piece measures approx 48 cm, adjust to after the last but one row in M.1 (i.e. row from WS). Work next row as follows from RS: 2 garter sts, P3, K2 tog, K1, P3, K1, K2 tog, K2 tog, K1, P3, K1, K2 tog, P3 and 1 garter st = 23 sts. K 1 row on all sts from WS and then cast off. Sew tog, edge to edge, mid back.

HAT:
Pick up 104 sts with Classic Alpaca or Puna on circular needle size 4 mm along the side of edge with only 1 garter st – pick up inside this garter st (approx 21 sts on 10 cm). Work stocking st in the round. When piece measures 4 cm from where sts were picked up insert 8 markers in piece with 13 sts between each. On next round dec 1 st before each marker by K2 tog. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 11 times = 16 sts. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.
Hat measures approx 22 cm in total.
--------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:
Worked from side to side back and forth on needle. Cast on 45 sts on needle size 4 mm with Classic Alpaca or Puna. Work GARTER ST (first row = RS) on all sts – see above – AT THE SAME TIME on row 5 make 1 buttonhole as follows: Work 37 sts, cast off 3 sts, work 5 sts. On next row cast on 3 new sts over cast off sts. After 10 rows garter st work next row as follows (from RS): 17 garter sts, P3, inc 1 st in next st and K both sts, K1, P3, K1, inc 1 st in each of the next 2 sts and K all 4 sts, K1, P3, K1, inc 1 st in next st and K both sts, P3 and 8 garter sts = 49 sts. Work next row as follows (= WS): 8 garter sts, M.1 (= 24 sts) and M.2 on 17 sts. Continue like this, AT THE SAME TIME (from next row) work shortened rows as follows: * 2 rows on all sts, 2 rows back and forth on the bottom 17 sts (= M.2) only *, repeat from *-* until piece measures approx 52 cm on the shorter side - adjust to after the last but one row in M.1 (i.e row from WS). Work next row as follows (from RS):
17 garter st, P3, K2 tog, K1, P3, K1, K2 tog, K2 tog, K1, P3, K1, K2 tog, P3 and 8 garter sts = 45 sts. Work 10 rows garter st on all sts, cast off.

Hallo, ich würde gerne die Mütze stricken.... meine Frage: die Stelle mit 2 Fäden - wie wird die eine M hin und zurück gestrickt? Wie Krausrippe? Vielen Dank

DROPS Design 11.12.2017 kl. 11:15:

Liebe Betty, dieses Video zeigt, wie man mit 2 Fäden nur 1 oder einige Maschen strickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Picking up 104 stitches on cable band directions state to pick up inside this garter. Does this mean on the wrong side of the cable band? Looking at the pattern picture looks like you see the edge of band. Please help. Francine

DROPS Design 17.08.2016 kl. 09:29:

Dear Francine, you have to pick up the 104 sts from RS, inside the garter sts. Happy knitting!

Mary 27.05.2015 - 14:46:

Would you be so kind as to email me instructions for 4 rows after the increase row. Thanks you so much.

DROPS Design 27.05.2015 kl. 17:13:

Dear Mary, after increase row from RS, work from WS: 8 sts in garter st, then the 24 sts in M.1 (read from the bottom corner on the left side towards the right), then work the 17 sts in M.2 = K from WS. On next row, start short rows: 2 rows on all sts: 2nd + 3d row in M1 and M2 , 2 rows on the 17 sts in M.2 = row 4+5 in M.2, then work again 2 rows on all sts (= row 4 + 5 in M.1 and row 6 + 7 in M2) and 2 rows in M2 only (= row 8 + 9) and so on, ie follow each diagram separately. Happy knitting!

I have a question about 114-5 hat and neck warmer with cables. Neck Warmer: I have finished 10 rows garter stitch and increased to 49 sts and worked next row using row 1 of M.1 and M.2 but I’m a bit confused with AT THE SAME TIME (from next row) work shortened rows as follows 2 rows on all sts (does this mean to work 2 rows in garter st) and 2 rows back and forth on the bottom 17sts (m.2) only 9(does this mean work 2 more rows for m.2 only). Hazel

DROPS Design 21.05.2015 kl. 09:00:

Dear Hazel, when working short rows, work sts in pattern following diagrams at the same time, ie when working 2 rows over the sts in M.2 continue following diagram M.2. Happy knitting!

Merci beaucoup pour la réponse. Bye.

Martine Pageau 16.04.2015 - 00:37:

Vous dites de relever 104 mailles avec l'aiguille circulaire et tricoter en jersey en rond. Le jersey étant 1 rang endroit et 1 rang envers lorsque le tricot n'est pas en rond; Est-ce vraiment cela que je dois tricoter avec l'aiguille circulaire car on dirait que sur la photo ce sont tous des rang envers? Merci à l'avance de me répondre.

DROPS Design 16.04.2015 kl. 09:48:

Bonjour Mme Pageau, quand on tricote du jersey en rond, on tricote tous les rangs à l'endroit (cf vidéo ci-dessous). Le haut du bonnet est tricoté en jersey endroit mais vous pouvez naturellement le tricoter en jersey envers si vous préférez (en rond, tricotez tous les tours à l'envers). Bon tricot!

Zineb 21.02.2015 - 20:39:

Merci infiniment pour votre réponse et vos explications.cdt

Zineb 17.02.2015 - 14:55:

Bonjour.Tout d'abord merci pour votre générosité.Je n'arrive pas à réaliser le tour du cou.vous parlez de diagramme vue d endroit et pourtant dans le texte il s agit de l envers(envers:8pts mousse-M1-M2). Autre chose je ne comprends pas la phrase: sur les 2rgs raccourcis.vs ecrivez tous les rgs puis les 17seulement. Pourriez-vous m eclairer j ai commenceé 10 fois le début.merci d avance

DROPS Design 17.02.2015 kl. 15:27:

Bonjour Mme Zineb, le 1er rang des diagrammes se tricote ici sur l'envers, donc pour M2, le 1er rang = à l'end sur l'envers, et pour M1, tricotez comme les mailles doivent se présenter sur l'endroit, c'est-à-dire 3 m end, 3 m env, 3 m end, 6 m env, 3 m end, 3 m env, 3 m end. Le rang 2 et tous les rangs impairs seront sur l'endroit (torsades). En même temps, quand vous tricotez le rang 2 (= sur l'endroit), vous tricotez des rangs raccourcis (2 rangs sur toutes les mailles, 2 rangs sur 17 m= les mailles tricotées en M2). Continuez ces rangs raccourcis ainsi, quand vous tricotez toutes les mailles, vous continuez M1 et les torsades. Bon tricot!

GG 07.02.2015 - 12:17:

Bonjour; Merci de votre réponse rapide, en fait j'ai sélectionné le diagramme (bien qu'il soit incomplet en vue) j'ai fait ensuite un copie/collé sur Word office , et celui -ci apparait comme par magie ! :-) Bonne continuation à vous. Cordialement. Geneviève

GG 06.02.2015 - 00:47:

Bonsoir Les diagrammes du modèle DROPS 114-5 by DROPS Design ne s'affichent pas :-( j'aimerai tricoter ce modèle, mais difficile sans le croquis, est-il possible de le récupérer SVP ? Merci .:-) Cordialement GG

DROPS Design 06.02.2015 kl. 11:29:

Bonjour GG, les diagrammes s'affichent bien en bas de page, c'était peut-être un bug passager, si vous ne les voyez toujours pas, envoyez un mail à france@garnstudio.com - merci. Bon tricot!
