See diagram M.2 - diagram shows repeat as seen from RS.

Worked in the round from bottom edge towards the top.
Cast on 84-96 sts with Nepal on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work 10 rounds rib, P3/K3 – NOTE: Beg with P3. Work next round as follows: * P3, K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K2, P1, K2, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1 *, repeat from *-* to end = 112-128 sts. Change to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Continue as follows: * P3, M.2 (K YO from previous round into back of loop to avoid a hole) *, repeat from *-* to end (= 7-8 repeats). Change to double pointed needles when sts no longer fit circular needle. After M.2 there are 42-48 sts on needle. On next round work all P3 tog to P1 = 28-32 sts. On next round K2 tog to end = 14-16 sts. Cut the thread and pull through remaining sts twice, tighten tog and fasten. The hat measures approx 24 cm / 9½".

I am wondering if as you work the M2 chart you are suppose to increase as you go. I didn’t see any instructions or markings showing an increase in stitches but the way the chart reads, it looks like you would have to increase as you go.

DROPS Design 10.04.2019 kl. 10:21:

Dear Kimberly, that's correct, you will first increase when working diagram, then decrease. On 6th row in M.2 ( see 7th and 8th symbols) you will increase 2 sts - again on row 8 and so on as shown in diagram. This video shows how to work M.2. Happy knitting!

Comment arrive t'on à 42 mailles après M2 car nulle part dans les explications il est question de diminution. Merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 03.01.2019 kl. 22:01:

Bonjour Marie, les diminutions sont inclues dans le diagramme M.2. Bon tricot!

Marie 03.01.2019 - 20:58:

Dans quel sens se lit le diagramme ?

DROPS Design 03.01.2019 kl. 22:04:

Chère Marie, comment lire les diagrammes des points fantaisie dans les explications vous pouvez trouver ICI. Bon tricot!

Marie 03.01.2019 - 20:56:

Bonjour, je débute dans le tricot, aussi je trouve ce model magnifique. J'ai 2 questions, la première est quelles sont les mailles à tricoter avant les 3 m envers pour commencer le diagramme et la seconde est comment arrive t'on à 42 mailles au lieu des 112 avant de commencer M2 ? Merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 03.01.2019 kl. 22:00:

Bonjour Marie, 1). 3 mailles envers pour commencer le diagramme sont juste au-dessus des 3 mailles envers du tour precedent (placez un marqueur au debut du tour); 2) les diminutions sont inclues dans le diagramme M.2. A la fin du diagramme vous avez 3 mailles: (3 mailles du diagramme x 7 repetitions) + (3 mailles envers x 7 repetitions)= 21+21=42. Bon tricot!

Gracias por haber puesto mi nombre a este diseño que me encanta y lo estoy realizando😍

France 29.06.2018 - 01:51:

Bonjour, J’ai monté 96 mailles mais le patron semble être calculé pour 84 parce que je n’arrive pas en fesant les motifs. Désolé c’est mon premier patron à vie 😊 comment puis je l’ajuster ou sinon quelle est mon erreur selon vous. Je lis de droite à gauche donc par exemple la deuxième ligne je commence pa 6 endroits, une envers, et je poursuit 12 end, une env, 12end, une env

DROPS Design 29.06.2018 kl. 08:14:

Bonjour France, on monte d'abord 84 mailles puis on tricote 10 tours de côtes 3 m end/3 m env. On va ensuite augmenter au tour suivant à 112 m (répétez de *-* tout le tour d'augmentations indiqué). Tricotez ensuite le diagramme ainsi: *3 m env, M.2 (= 13 m) *, répétez 7 fois au total de *à* soit 7 x (3+13)= 112 m. Bon tricot!

OK...zu Beginn steht, dass die Arbeit rundgestrickt wird, aber wozu dann die Rundstricknadeln?

DROPS Design 13.03.2018 kl. 09:17:

Liebe Frau Quach, die Mütze wird in Runden mit kleineren Rundstricknadeln (40 cm, zuerst Nr 3,5 und dann Nr 5) gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ursula Quach 12.03.2018 - 18:48:

Hallo, vielen Dank für die schöne Anleitung. Ich bin keine so routinierte Strickerin. Ich beginne mit einer Rundstricknadel Nr. 3,5 10 R. Bündchen lt. Anleitung. Bedeutet R Runden oder Reihen? Nach der Zunahme wechseln zu Rundnadel Nr. 5. (?) Wo nutze ich das Nadelspiel Nr.5? Freue mich auf Antwort und probiere schon mal ein wenig aus.

DROPS Design 13.03.2018 kl. 09:16:

Liebe Frau Quach, je nach der Anleitung wird R für Reihe oder Runde benutz, diese Mütze wird in der Runde gestrickt. Das Nadelspiel Nr 5 wird am Ende der Mütze benutzt, wenn es wegen Abnahmen immmer weniger Maschen gibt, bzw zu wenig Maschen für das Rundnadel. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hello! I started knitting this hat just before bed and didn't see the part where it says start with P3. I've just finished the ribbing and went back to read the instructions when I realized my mistake. Is there any way I can modify the next rounds of the pattern to match K3/P3 or should I frog it and start again? Thanks

DROPS Design 26.11.2017 kl. 16:52:

Dear Sofia, if you did K 3 / P3 ribbing then you could just move the start of teh round to the next P3. If you have to knitted a different ribbing, then you will have to frog. I hope this helps. Happy knitting!

Teresa 04.10.2016 - 11:15:

Ich habe die gleiche Frage wie Jutta und Silvia, die immer noch nicht beantwortet wurde. "Ist da nun oben 6. Reihe eine reihe zuviel eingezeichnet oder fehlt eine Annahme-Reihe?" Freue mich über eine Antwort!

DROPS Design 04.10.2016 kl. 13:33:

Liebe Teresa, Diagram is korrekt und so wurde die Mütze gestrickt. Am 8.R von oben nimmt man 1 M. in beide Zöpfe (= 2 Abnahme).
