GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 120-128 sts on needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with brown. Work 2 RIDGES in garter st - see explanation above (1st row = RS). Switch to wooden rose and continue in garter st. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 20-21 cm / 8"-8 1/4", insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: Insert 1st marker after the first 15-16 sts on row, insert the next 3 markers 30-32 sts apart = 15-16 sts on row after last marker.
On next row from RS switch back to brown.
Continue in garter st AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row from RS dec 2 sts at every marker – READ DECREASE TIP (= 8 sts dec). Repeat dec every other row (i.e. every row from RS – remember to move the marker so that it is in rem st from previous dec), 12-13 more times (= 13-14 times in total) = 16 sts remain on row.
On next row from RS K 2 tog across = 8 sts remain on row.
Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Hat measures approx. 25-27 cm / 9 3/4"-10½". Sew hat tog mid back - sew edge to edge in outer loops of edge sts.
