HAT AND NECKWARMER:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. Diagrams show pattern from RS.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.
--------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Worked in the round. Cast on 98 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Nepal and K 1 round. Then work rib according to diagram A.1 (= 2 repetitions on round). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, switch to circular needle size 4 mm. Then work PATTERN according to diagram A.2. When piece measures approx. 21 cm – adjust after one whole repetition vertically of lace pattern, work and dec according to diagram A.3 (= 2 repetitions on round) – switch to double pointed needles when needed. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, 24 sts remain on round. K all sts twisted tog 2 by 2. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. The hat measures approx. 26 cm vertically.

NECK WARMER:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 40-44 sts on needle size 4.5 mm with Nepal. K 4 rows (1st row = RS) – AT THE SAME TIME on 3rd row inc 5-5 sts evenly (do not inc over the outermost 2 sts in each side) = 45-49 sts. Work next row as follows from RS: 2 edge sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, work A.4 (= 6 sts), P 2-3, A.5 (= 6 sts), P 2-3, A.6 (= 9 sts), P 2-3, A.4, P 2-3, A.5 and 2 edge sts in GARTER ST. Continue pattern like this (from WS K the 2-3 sts between every diagram). When piece measures approx. 71-75 cm – adjust after one whole repetition vertically of lace pattern in the middle, K 4 rows – AT THE SAME TIME dec 5-5 sts evenly on 1st row = 40-44 sts. Then cast off with K from WS.

ASSEMBLY:
Place the 2 ends on top of each other so that the tip at the front is double. Sew cast off edge edge to edge with the outer side of one long side, and cast on edge edge to edge with outer side in the other side.

--------------------------------------------------------
MITTENS:

PATTERN:
See diagram A.7. Diagram shows all rows in pattern.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next round K YO twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec as follows (beg 3 sts before marker): K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these 2 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
--------------------------------------------------------

RIGHT MITTEN:
Cast on 40-40 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with Nepal and K 1 round. Then work rib (= K 2/P 2). When rib measures 6-7 cm, work next round as follows: * K 5, K the next 2 tog *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, K 1, P 2, * K 2 tog, K 2 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, K 2 tog, P 2 and finish with K 4 = 34-34 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm, work next round as follows: 19 sts in stocking st (= inside hand), A.7 (= 11 sts) and 4 sts in stocking st. Continue the pattern like this. When piece measures 8-9 cm, inc 1 st on each side of first st on round for thumb - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc on each side of the inc sts every other round 4-5 more times = 44-46 sts. Now slip the 11-13 thumb sts on a stitch holder. Continue in the round as before while AT THE SAME TIME casting on 1 new st behind thumb on next round = 34-34 sts. When mitten measures approx. 21-23 cm (try the mitten on, approx. 4 cm remain until finished measurements), insert 1 marker after the first 16 sts on round and 1 marker after the next 17 sts (1 st remains on round after last marker). Now dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every other round 2 more times and then every round a total of 3 times = 10 sts remain on needle – NOTE: When there is not room for more repetitions of A.7 vertically, finish the pattern after one whole repetition vertically, then work in stocking st over the remaining sts in pattern until dec are done. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

THUMB:
Slip the 11-13 thumb sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 4 mm. In addition knit up 4-3 sts behind thumb = 15-16 sts. Work in stocking st in the round until the thumb itself measures approx. 4½-5 cm (try on the mitten, approx. ½ cm remain until finished measurements). K 2 rounds while AT THE SAME TIME K all sts tog 2 by 2 on both rounds = 4-4 sts remain on needle. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

LEFT MITTEN:
Cast on and work as right mitten but reversed. I.e. beg rib with P 2 (instead of K 2). Work 1st round after rib as follows: K 4, P 2, * K 2 tog, K 2 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, K 2 tog, P 2, K 1, * K 2 tog, K 5 *, repeat from *-* 2 more times. Inc for thumb on each side of last st on round. And before dec at the top of mitten, insert 1st marker after 1st st on round and 2nd marker after the next 17 sts (= 16 sts remain on round after last marker).

Jardé 16.02.2018 - 20:06:

Bonjour, Je rencontre un problème pour la moufle gauche. Lorsque je dois faire des diminutions du début de rang je dois procéder comment ? Car il faut les commencer 3 mailles avant le marqueur et le marqueur se trouve après la première maille seulement. Je dois commencer sur le rang précédent ou je dois faire la dim en deux étapes et diminuer les deux mailles ensemble en fin de rang ? Merci drops !

DROPS Design 19.02.2018 kl. 08:48:

Bonjour Mme Jardé, commencez la diminution à la fin du tour pour que les 2 diminutions de chaque côté soient faites au même rythme. Bon tricot!

Jardé 11.02.2018 - 21:41:

Bonjour, Pour les moufles Je dois réaliser les augmentations de chaque côté de la première maille du tour ou du côté extérieur des mailles augmentées ? C'est écrit 'augmenter de chaque côté des mailles augmentées' du coup si on suit ça on obtient 4 augmentations tous les deux rangs. Merci d'avance pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 09:19:

Bonjour Mme Jardé, on va augmenter de part et d'autre des mailles augmentées = avant l'augmentation précédente, la m du pouce et après l'augmentation précédente pour qu'il n'y ait que 2 augmentations et non 4. Bon tricot!

Hello, enjoy your website for many years and it gets better and more convenient every year. The general advice about all the descriptions of garments on the site: it would be great if, when writing the name of yarn used for the item, you make it as a link to the specified yarn. Thanks!

DROPS Design 27.01.2017 kl. 15:24:

Dear Polina, you will find link to the shadecard of the requested yarn at the very bottom of "Materials" tab, just above "Print pattern, Photo, Comments). Happy knitting!

Belinda 07.12.2016 - 02:05:

Donna thanks for the reply, I think a lot of people have questions about CHART A.3 how the last two rows have 11 stitches omitted in each of these rows. I had not come across a knitting chart before like this one so it was another learning experience. I just love the Drops patterns, they're absolutely beautiful. Thank You:)

Belinda 05.12.2016 - 01:27:

What comes after k2, p4, k6, p2, k2 in chart A.2?

DROPS Design 05.12.2016 kl. 10:05:

Dear Belinda, in row 1 in A.2 work: K2, P4, K6, P4, K2, P2, K11, P2, K2, P4, K6, P4. When you have worked the lace pattern 1 time in height repeat the lace pattern from row 1 - continue cables as before, ie with 5 rows between each cable. Happy knitting!

Kay 12.01.2015 - 18:50:

In the A2 diagram, the top 2 rows are empty for the central design. How do I knit across? Should I knot across the central design for the top 2 rows? This A2 needs to be repeated several times, so it isn't clear how to knit the top 2 rows for the central design. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Kay

DROPS Design 13.01.2015 kl. 09:08:

Dear Kay, in A.2 there are 2 different kind of repetition: the cables and the lace pattern, both patterns are not worked over the same number of rows, when the lace pattern in the middle of A.2 is finished, work these sts on next row as in 1st row - when cables are done in height, work these sts as in 1st row and repeat in height as before. Happy knitting!

Catia 03.08.2014 - 11:56:

Cortesemente non riesco a capire cosa significa la casella tutta nera , forse devo fare una diminuzione? grazie mille catia

DROPS Design 03.08.2014 kl. 12:23:

Buongiorno Catia. Quando lavora il diagramma A.3 deve saltare le caselle nere. Sono maglie diminuite nei giri precedenti. P.es al giro 4, deve lavorare: 2 m dir, 3 m rov, 4 m dir, 3 m rov e così via. Buon lavoro!

Natalia 26.01.2014 - 06:31:

Hello, Could you please help me with diagram A2 rows 11 and 12. What should I do after I knit 2 sts, P4, K6, P4, K2, P2???? Where will be 11 stitches, which after previous row are on my left needle?

DROPS Design 27.01.2014 kl. 08:52:

Dear Natalia, when lace pattern is finished repeat the lace pattern from row 1, at the same time, continue cable pattern in A.2 as shown in diagram. Happy knitting!

Froilein Zak 22.01.2014 - 12:37:

Hallo, ich habe eine Frage bzgl der Musterzeichnungen. Sind dort nur die Hinreihen gezeichnet oder auch dieRückreihen ? Vielen Dank

DROPS Design 23.01.2014 kl. 07:48:

Liebes Froilein Zak, es sind die Hin-und Rück-R dargestellt.

Maria Antonia 04.12.2013 - 20:04:

No puedo imprimir el patrón, la foto sí, pero el patrón no.

DROPS Design 06.12.2013 kl. 21:16:

Hola Maria Antonia! He entrado en el patrón por si había algún error pero funciona bien. Pinchas en imprimir patrón y te salta una imagen de promoción, en la parte superior derecha aparece en letra pequeña "imprime el patrón" y al pinchar ahí te salen las 5 hojas de las que consta para que imprimas
