HAT:
Worked in the round. Cast on 86-90 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Alpaca and Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work 2.5 cm stocking st, P 1 round (= folding edge) and work 2.5 cm stocking st. Now measure piece from here.
Change to circular needle size 4 mm and work 2 rounds GARTER ST - see above - AT THE SAME TIME dec 8-6 sts evenly on first round = 78-84 sts. Continue in M.1, AT THE SAME TIME on last round in M.1 dec 8-0 sts evenly = 70-84 sts. After M.1 insert 5-6 markers in piece as follows: marker 1 after 4 sts, then 14 sts between each marker, i.e. 10 sts after the last marker.
Continue in LEAF PATTERN - see above. AT THE SAME TIME on round 2 in leaf pattern inc 1 st before each marker - see INCREASING TIP. Repeat the inc on every 4th round until there is a total of 6 inc by each marker - NOTE: 1 inc remain after the leaf pattern has been completed.
After leaf pattern continue in garter st (there are 100-120 sts on needle after leaf pattern and the inc by markers).
When piece measures approx 9-11 cm from the edge - adjust so that next round is a K round - dec before each marker by K2 tog. Repeat the dec on every other round (i.e. on every K round) a total of 17 times = 15-18 sts left on needle. Change to double pointed needles when sts no longer fit circular needle. K2 tog across next K round, cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
Fold edge double towards WS and fasten with neat sts.
