All inc are done from RS. Inc 1 st before and after st with marker by making 1 YO. On next round P YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of YO instead of front) to avoid holes.
All dec are done from RS. Dec 1 st on each side of st with marker. Beg 1 st before st with marker. Slip 1 st on a cable needle behind the piece, slip 1 st (= st with marker), K next st and st on cable needle tog, psso.

Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 117-123-129 (135-141) sts (incl 1 edge st in each side) on needle size 2.5 mm with Alpaca. K 8 rows (1st row = RS).
Insert 7 markers in piece from RS as follows:
1st marker in the 2nd st on needle,
2nd marker in the 25th-26th-27th (28th-29th) st,
3rd marker in the 48th-50th-52nd (54th-56th) st,
4th marker in the 59th-62nd-65th (68th-71st) st,
5th marker in the 70th-74th-78th (82nd-86th) st,
6th marker in the 93rd-98th-103rd (108th-113th) st, and the 7th marker in the next to last st on the needle.
Continue in stocking st with 1 edge st in garter st in each side of piece - AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row beg to inc and dec - Read INCREASE TIP and DECREASE TIP above - on every other row as follows:
Inc 1 st after 1st marker.
Dec 1 st on each side of 2nd marker.
Inc 1 st on each side of 3rd marker.
Dec 1 st on each side of 4th marker.
Inc 1 st on each side of 5th marker.
Dec 1 st on each side of 6th marker.
Inc 1 st before 7th marker.
Continue to inc and dec from RS like this on every other row a total of 6 times. Then dec on every other row from RS on each side of the 2nd, 4th and 6th marker until 15 sts remain on needle. Piece measures approx. 15-15-16 (16-17) cm from the bottom tip at the 2nd or 6th marker = ear flap.
Work next row from RS as follows: K 1, K 2 tog, K 9, K 2 tog, K 1 = 13 sts. Repeat dec in each side on every row (from WS P the 2 sts before and after edge st tog) until 3 sts remain, cast off and pull thread trough sts.

Sew the hat tog mid back inside 1 edge st. The middle of the 3 whole tips on cast on edge goes down to the forehead at the front.

Cast on 4 sts on needle size 2.5 mm. Work as follows: * K 1, place yarn in front of piece (towards you), slip 1 st as if to P, place yarn behind piece (from you) *, repeat from *-* on more time and on all rows.
This results in a round ribbon. Cast off when the tie measures approx. 20-22-24 (26-28) cm. Knit a similar tie. Sew one ribbon at the bottom of each tip on ear flap on each side.

Hallo, eine Frage: Werden die Markierungen jeweils in die nächste Reihe übernommen und wenn ja, wie? Wenn nein, woher weiß ich wo ich in der nächsten Hin Reihe abnehmen muss?

DROPS Design 13.03.2019 kl. 08:05:

Liebe Leyla, ja die Markierungen sollen jeweils in die nächste Reihe übernommen werden, dh bis Ab- bzw Zunahmen fertig sind. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sonja 12.03.2019 - 10:03:

Genau nach Anleitung war sie bei mir auch zu klein. Ich stricke aber auch recht eng. Die Quintessenz: Für ein Kind von 1 Jahr war bei mir die größte Größe mit 141 Maschen stimmig. Zusätzlich habe ich die Anzahl der Ab- und Zunahmen in den geplanten 6 Hinreihen auf 12 verdoppelt und dann hat es perfekt gepasst. Für unsere Große mit 2 1/2 Jahren habe ich 151 Maschen angeschlagen, Markierung auf 2/30/59/76/92/122/150 gesetzt und anstatt der 6 Hinreihen Ab-und Zunahme 16 Hinreihen.

DROPS Design 12.03.2019 kl. 10:12:

Liebe Sonja, beachten Sie, daß Ihre Maschenprobe stimmt, dh hier sollten Sie 26 M. x 34 R. glatt gestrickt = 10 x 10 cm. Wenn für 10 cm mehr Maschen als in der Maschenprobe angegeben benötigt werden, zu einer dickeren Nadelstärke wechseln. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Can I use Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino yarn?

DROPS Design 10.03.2019 kl. 16:54:

Dear Bev, these patterns are written especially for DROPS yarns. We are sorry but cannot advise you about yarns made by other manufacturer. However, you should always make a swatch and check your gauge if you decide to substitute. Happy Knitting!

LINDA CLARK 13.01.2019 - 23:05:

I did end up by making this hat in the round and just eliminated the 2 extra edge stitches allowed in the knitted flat pattern. It worked out well.

Linda Clark 04.01.2019 - 20:25:

Do you think it would be possible to work this pattern in the round? I would rather not have a seam at the back of the hat. In reading the pattern instructions, I think I could by knitting all rounds and only making increases and decreases every other round....also decrease cast on sts by 2 as I would not have to allow for "edge" stitches. What do you think?

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 09:06:

Dear Mrs Clark, this could probably work - make sure to place the markers on the right places, but just remember when the designer writes a pattern back and forth, there must be some reason and it can be a good idea to follow the instructions. Happy knitting!

Emily De Vinck 02.12.2018 - 00:13:

Hi there, I see that the edge around the face appears to be 3-4 rows of purl stitches. However, I don’t see any instruction to purl on the RS. How do I get this purl edge? Is this edge actually the 8 garter stitch rows in the beginning? At the beginning for K8 rows, does that mean knit in stockinette for 8 rows to get garter stitch rows?

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 09:10:

Dear Mrs De Vinck, you start the hat working 8 K rows, this will give you 4 ridges in garter stitch and then continue working in stockinette stitch. Happy knitting!

Detta är en jättefin mössa. Stickade den till barnbarnet i st 6/9 mån. Väldigt fin modell och den passade bra. Nu ville mamman till barnbarnet att jag skulle sticka en i större storlek så det blev en 2 år. Den blev på tok för liten och barnbarnet är bara 7 mån.Passade bra runt om, men var ju alldeles för kort. Enligt mönstret blir ju alla mössor ungefär lika höga och det måste ju vara fel. Huvudet växer ju både runt och på höjden.

Aino 21.10.2018 - 23:04:

Liebes Drops Team. Mache ich die Zu und Abnahmen in jeder Hinreihe (nach meinem Verständnis zu und Aubnahmen machen, Rückreihe stricken und dann wieder zu und aubnahmen) oder in jeder 2. Hinreihe (zu und Aubnahmen machen, rückreihe, hinreihe, rückreihe stricken und dann wieder zu und Abnahme) ? Danke Lg Aino

DROPS Design 22.10.2018 kl. 10:01:

Liebe Aino, die Zu- und Abnahmen werden in jeder 2. Reihe gestrickt = in jeder Hinreihe. Dann werden die Abnahmen auch in jeder 2. Reihe = in jeder Hinreihe gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Pagano Agnès 06.10.2018 - 18:19:

Bonjour , pour terminer le bonnet je n\'ai pas le même rendu que sur la photo. la pointe est plus courte. Faut-il commencer les diminutions de chaque coté avant la fin des diminutions de part et d\'autre de la maille centrale des marqueurs 2,4 et 6 ?\r\nmerci de votre réponse . agnès

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 10:12:

Bonjour Agnès, vous diminuez et augmentez comme indiqué d'abord 6 fois au total tous les 2 rangs, puis vous n'augmentez plus mais diminuez seulement tous les 2 rangs aux marqueurs 2, 4 et 6 jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 15 m. (pensez à bien vérifier votre échantillon en hauteur). Bon tricot!

Lena S Gille 22.09.2018 - 15:21:

Jättefin mössa, men den blir så pytteliten, jag stickar normal fasthet. Fick göra om hela mössan o sticka största storleken till en tre månaders baby. Använde drops alpacka mix st 2,5 eller 3, minns inte riktigt
