HAT:
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 80-88 sts with Nepal on needle size 4.5 mm. K 1 row, then work DOUBLE MOSS ST - see explanation above - over all sts.
When piece measures 20-21 cm (adjust so that last row is from RS), work in GARTER ST - see explanation above - until finished measurements AT THE SAME TIME dec every 4th row as follows:
Row 4: Dec 16-18 sts evenly (= approx. every 5th st) = 64-70 sts on needle.
Row 8: Dec 13-14 sts (= approx. 5th st) = 51-56 sts.
Row 12: Dec 10-11 sts (= approx. 5th st) = 41-45 sts.
Row 16: Dec 9-9 sts (= approx. 5th st) = 32-36 sts.
Row 20: K all sts tog 2 by 2 = 16-18 sts.
Row 24: K all sts tog 2 by 2 = 8-9 sts.
Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts. Sew hat tog mid back, edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam. Hat measures approx. 26-27 cm. Fasten yarn tightly.
