Worked in the round. Cast on 128 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm/US 1or2 with anthracite. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm / 1½''. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4, K 1 round while at the same time dec 8 sts evenly = 120 sts. Continue with diagram M.1 (= 10 repetitions on the round). REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
After diagram M.1, work diagram M.2 one time vertically. Then continue with anthracite and in stockinette st until finished measurements. At the same time when piece measures 20 cm / 8'', insert 10 markers in the piece, 12 sts apart. On next round, dec 1 st after every marker by K 2 tog. Repeat dec on every other round a total of 6 times, then on every round a total of 5 times = 10 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
The hat measures approx. 25-26 cm / 9 3/4"-10 1/4'' vertically.

Make a large, compact pompom with anthracite. It should be approx. 8 cm / 3'' in diameter.
Sew the pompom on the top of the hat.

Hi Just wondering how to avoid the pattern getting out of alignment at the join when working in the round?

DROPS Design 25.06.2014 kl. 08:44:

Dear Rachael, you can use the same technique as for stripes in the round shown in the video below. Happy knitting!

I like everything about this hat, it is traditional but has a modern look with enough fullness.

Kari 18.06.2011 - 17:56:

Denne kunne jeg tenke meg å lage. Modellen er veldig tradisjonsrik og kan kombineres med flere modeller og strikkes i forskjellige farger.

Sabine 07.06.2011 - 20:53:
