----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Cast on 7 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm with Nepal. Insert 1 marker in the 4th st (mid st - marks mid back of shawl). Work 1 row as follows (= RS): K 3, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 3 = 9 sts.
Then K every row while AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every row from RS as follows: Make 1 YO inside 3 sts in garter st in each side and make a YO on each side of st with marker.
On next row K YO to make holes.
When piece measures approx. 60 cm in the middle (adjust so that next row is worked from RS and measure when holding the piece up), work as follows: Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm and K 1 row while at the same time inc evenly to 331 sts. K 1 row from WS, then work as follows: 3 sts in garter st, 1 YO, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain before mid st, K 2, 1 YO, K the mid st, 1 YO, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 5 sts remain, K 2, 1 YO and 3 sts in garter st.
Continue like this with rib and inc, work inc sts in rib. When piece measures 67 cm, inc 1 st in every P-section (seen from RS), continue with K 2/P 3. When piece measures 74 cm, inc 1 st in every K-section (seen from RS), continue with K 3/P 3. When piece measures 80 cm in the middle, cast off with K over K and P over P.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
First work the cable back and forth sideways.
Then knit up sts along one side of cable and work crown of hat. Then knit up sts along the other side of cable and work brim of hat. Finally sew the hat tog mid back.

CABLE EDGE:
Worked back and forth on needle size 4.5 mm.
Cast on 22 sts with Nepal. K 1 row from WS. Work next row as follows: 2 sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, * P 2, K 2 in each of the next 2 sts (= K 4), P 2 *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, finish with 2 sts in garter st = 28 sts. Work 1 row from WS with K over K and P over P with 2 sts in garter st in each side. Continue with diagram A-1 until 7-8 repetitions have been worked (piece measures approx. 49-55 cm). Work next row as follows – from RS: 2 sts in garter st, * P 2, K 2 tog, K 2 tog, P 2 *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, finish with 2 sts in garter st = 22 sts. K 1 row from WS over all sts, then cast off. Edge is approx. 12 cm wide.

Worked back and forth on circular needle size 4 mm.
Knit up 1 st in every ridge in front loop of outermost st along one side of cable edge. K 1 row from WS while at the same time inc evenly to 90-100 sts (inc by working 2 sts in 1 st). Insert 1 marker at beg of row (from RS) and then 1 marker for every 10th st (= 9-10 markers in total). Work in GARTER ST back and forth - see explanation above. AT THE SAME TIME on 4th row from edge where sts were knit up (= from RS), dec 1 st after every marker by K 2 tog. Repeat dec every 4th row 3 more times and then every other row 5 times = 9-10 sts remain on needle. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts and tighten tog.

I am going to try and knit this beautiful hat .Will let you know what it's like Thank you for the free pattern

Lebigot 01.02.2017 - 18:37:

Bonjour, Je n'ai pas bien compris s'il fallait que je fasse des augmentations tous les rangs ou seulement un rang sur deux après les 331 mailles. J'ai fais le rang de cote avec les jetés sur l'endroit mais je ne sais pas quoi faire pour le rang suivant envers? Merci

DROPS Design 02.02.2017 kl. 13:32:

Bonjour Mme Lebigot, les augmentations vont se faire tous les 2 rangs = tous les rangs sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Lebigot 30.01.2017 - 11:42:

Merci pour vos explications. Je fais bien des augmentations à tous les rangs? Et pas un rang sur 2?

Lebigot 28.01.2017 - 12:02:

Bonjour, je voudrais d'abord vous remercier pour vos réponses toujours rapides et précises! Je suis bloquée sur le premier rang de cote avec les 331 mailles.J'ai fais le rang de cote avec les jetés sur l'endroit mais je ne sais pas quoi faire pour le rang suivant envers? Dois je faire également des jetés? Si je fais ça je vais décaler mes cotes? Pouvez vous m'aider? Après 67cm de hauteur, il est indiqué d'augmenter 1 M dans chaque section envers, qu’appelez vous une section? Merci

DROPS Design 30.01.2017 kl. 10:52:

Bonjour Mme Lebigot, vous allez incorporer les augmentations en côtes au fur et à mesure, c'est-à-dire que vous tricotez les mailles avant/après les m de bordure ou au milieu en suivant les côtes. Ainsi, les 2 premières augmentations de chaque côté du châle vont se tricoter à l'envers (vu sur l'endroit), puis à l'endroit (vu sur l'endroit) et ainsi de suite pour toujours bien conserver les côtes 2/2. Augmenter 1 m dans chaque section en mailles envers = augmentez 1 m env dans les 2 m env et continuez en côtes 2 m end/3 m env. Bon tricot!

Carolyn Clapham 09.11.2016 - 11:04:

I've looked again at Chart A1 for the hat rib. There are16 rows, and the last (bottom) row definitely has cables in it, so I am still confused! Or, thinking about it, should I have started from the bottom of the chart rather than the top?

DROPS Design 09.11.2016 kl. 13:38:

Dear Mrs Clapham, start to read diagram from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left from RS and from left towards right from WS, ie 1st row in A.1 is the bottom row in diagram with cables. Read more here about diagrams. Happy knitting!

Carolyn Clapham 08.11.2016 - 20:50:

I'm stuck on how to end the hat cable edge. As I underestand it, the last row of an A1 repeat is always worked from right side, but to finish off after the required number of repeats, this is followed by a decrease row (which would be worked from wrong side), then by a knit row which according to instructions is worked from wrong side. Is there a mistake here or have I gone wrong somewhere?

DROPS Design 09.11.2016 kl. 09:01:

Dear Mrs Chlapham, all rows with cables in A.1 are worked from RS of piece, so that last row in A.1 is worked from WS, and dec row after last repeat of A.1 is worked from RS, then K 1 row from WS and bind off. Read more about diagrams here. Happy knitting!

Davesne 15.04.2016 - 21:57:

Je ne comprends pas bien au niveau des augmentations faire 1jeté avant / après les 3 mailles au point mousse de chaque coté. Pourquoi parlez vous des 3 mailles au point mousse puisque tous le rang est au point mousse .comment dois je faire les rangs les rangs 4 ,6 et ainsi de suite . Pour les augmentations du milieu j'ai compris .

DROPS Design 18.04.2016 kl. 08:46:

Bonjour Mme Davesne, on augmente tous les 2 rangs (= tous les rangs sur l'endroit = rangs 1, 3, 5, 7...) un total de 4 m: 1 m à 3 m des bords et 1 m de chaque côté de la m centrale. Sur l'envers (= rang 2, 4, 6...), on tricote les mailles et les jetés à l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Madelene 29.02.2016 - 22:00:

När man ska sticka 2 räta 2 aviga maskor ska man då öka på båda sidorna eller bara på rätsida? Alltså efter man ökat till 331 maskor?

DROPS Design 02.03.2016 kl. 14:42:

Hej, du fortsätter att öka från rätsidan. Lycka till!

Crab 02.02.2014 - 18:28:

Moet ik bij 60 cm in het midden van de naald verder gaan met een andere rondbreinaald ?wat gebeurd er dan met de reeds gebreide steken ?

DROPS Design 04.02.2014 kl. 14:33:

Hoi Crab. Nee, je moet wisselen van naald aan het begin van een nld van de goede kant: "pas zo aan dat de volgende nld aan de goede kant is en meet terwijl u het werk omhoog houd"

GEORJON 29.12.2013 - 14:22:

Le diagramme A1 ne donne pas le motif de la torsade

DROPS Design 30.12.2013 kl. 15:42:

Bonjour Mme Goerjon, pour réussir la torsade comme dans le modèle, 1 case = 1 m x 1 rang, commencez à lire le diagramme en bas à droite vers la gauche (sur l'endroit), au rang suivant (sur l'envers), lisez de gauche à droite. Bon tricot!
