I want to make this hat in a L/XL size. How. Do I get the change in number of stitches needed

DROPS Design 10.09.2018 kl. 08:37:

Dear Mrs Teta, this pattern comes in two sizes: S/M and L/XL. For the 2nd size, follow the 2nd number in the written pattern, ie cast on 88 sts to start. Happy knitting!

I've completed the 21cm of double moss st and I am stuck because I am not understanding the decreasing. Do I knit garter stitch 3 rows and on row 4 start decreasing like the video by knitting three and knit 2 stitches together? and continue on like this until row 20? I'd appreciate if you can explain further of this part. Thank you.

DROPS Design 24.08.2018 kl. 14:46:

Dear Theresa, you're right: when you reach 21 cm you have to start to work garter sts, and follow the instructions given so on row 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24 you've to decrease as indicated. You can decrease as explained in the video by knitting 2 sts together. Happy knitting!

Can this be knitted in the round?

DROPS Design 26.02.2018 kl. 18:34:

Dear Cheryl, of course you can. Happy knitting!

Just curious - the pattern mentions a DOUBLE SEED stitch - but the description looks like its knit 1 purl 1 to end of row, then next row is purl 1, knit 1. Itsn't double seed st. Knit 2, purl 2 to end of row, then purl 2 knit 2? ALso, just saw the video for making the hat and the technique looks really different - maybe its just the way the demonstrator purls - but it looks different then the way I do it!!! Am I missing something?

DROPS Design 24.02.2018 kl. 23:38:

Dear Jan, by double seed stitch here we mean that it is doubled vertically, not horizontally. So of you look at it, it is kind of elongated, two knit and two purl stitches above each other. As for the purl, there are many ways to make a purl stitch, this particular one is a Northern Eurpean way to purl. Happy Knitting!

Why are there 2 yarn types listed (Nepal and Nepal Mix) are you to switch yarns at some point? Did I miss something? Or can you use either yarn type?

DROPS Design 24.01.2018 kl. 09:26:

Dear Jan, DROPS Nepal is available in 2 kind of yarns: unicolour and mix (depending on the colour). Colour 0501 used here is a "mix" colour - see also shadecard. Happy knitting!

DROPS Design 05.01.2018 kl. 08:47:

Bonjour Mme Laporte, vous pouvez tout à fait choisir de tricoter ce modèle en rond pour éviter les coutures. Bon tricot!

Manue 20.11.2017 - 17:36:

Bonjour, Je ne vois pas où est indiqué le nombre de pelotes de laine à acheter en fonction de la taille ...désolée je ne suis pas une tricoteuse, je dois juste acheter la laine pour me faire tricoter le bonnet, merci :-)

DROPS Design 21.11.2017 kl. 08:17:

Bonjour Manue, vous trouverez la quantité de laine nécessaire pour chacun de nos modèles sous l'onglet "Fournitures", soit ici pour le bonnet, 100 g DROPS Nepal pour les 2 tailles / 50 g la pelote Nepal soit 2 pelotes pour chacune des 2 tailles. Bon tricot!
