Worked in the round. Cast on 117-129 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Karisma. K 1 round and continue in rib K1/P2 on all sts until piece measures 4 cm. Now continue in PATTERN on all sts – see above! REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures 18-20 cm work 3 rounds rib K1/P2 and now dec all P2 to P1 = 78-86 sts.
Change to double pointed needles when sts no longer fit circular needle. Work 2 rounds rib K1/P1. Now K2 tog across the round = 39-43 sts.
K 2 rounds and then K tog every 2nd and 3rd st across next round.
On next round work all sts 2 and 2 tog = 13-15 sts.
Pull thread through all sts and tighten tog. Hat measures approx 22-24 cm.
