Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle no when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

Use yarn from both inside and outside of the ball. When switching to a new ball, try to avoid switching both strands at the same time - to avoid a thick yarn when fastening.

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

See diagram A.1. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS. Work all pattern sts in stocking st with 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk (= BAS) or 1 strand Melody (= M).

Dec 1 st by K 2 sts tog.

Work back and forth on circular needle and sew tog mid back - READ DOUBLE YARN TIP and KNITTING TIP. NOTE: Work the 3 sts in garter st in each side always in base colour on every row in pattern.

Cast on 73 sts with 2 strands grey Brushed Alpaca Silk or 1 strand grey Melody on circular needle size 5.5 mm. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST back and forth - see explanation above, and dec on 5th row 6 sts evenly (but no over the outermost 3 sts in each side) - READ DECREASE TIP = 67 sts. Switch to circular needle size 6 mm and continue with PATTERN - see explanation above - as follows: Work 3 sts in garter st, work A.1 (= 12 sts) 5 times in width, work first st in A.1 so that pattern is symmetrical in each side, 3 sts in garter st. Continue like this back and forth. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When A.1 has been worked vertically, continue with grey ( 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk/ 1 strand Melody) until finished measurements. When piece measures 20 cm, work as follows: Work until 10 sts remain, turn and work until 10 sts remain, turn and work until 15 sts remain, turn and work until 15 sts remain. Continue like this by working 5 sts less on every row until piece measures 25 cm. Switch to circular needle size 5.5 mm. Work 1 ridge in garter st over all sts and inc on first row 6 sts evenly = 73 sts. Cast off.

Make 2 large pompoms with grey with an approx. diameter of 7 cm. Fasten a pompom in each end of cast-on edge.

Fold hat so that cast-off edge is placed double. Beg at the edge in each side and sew one and one st neatly tog towards the middle of cast-off edge. Cut the yarn and fasten.

Worked in the round on circular needle. READ DOUBLE YARN TIP.
Cast on 76-84 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm with 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk or 1 strand Melody. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 20-22 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION Cast off sts with K over K and P over P.

Dear Mrs Houston, work the 67 sts as follows: 3 sts in garter st, repeat A.1 a total of 5 times (= over the next 60 sts), work now the first st in A.1 and finish with 5 sts in garter st = 5 + 60 + 1 + 5 = 67 sts. Diagram is worked in stocking st, ie K all RS rows and P all WS row. Happy knitting!

Bonjour. Je n'ai pas trop compris le système de réduire jusque 10 mailles d'un côté puis de l'autre, pour augmenter à 15 mailles d'un côté puis de l'autre, puis ravoir le même nombre qu'au début. Est-ce que quelqu'un pourrait m'aider ? Merci d'avance. Bonne journée.

DROPS Design 21.12.2017 kl. 07:48:

Bonjour Céline, on fait ici des rangs raccourcis pour le milieu du bonnet: tricotez 1 rang en laissant 10 m non tricotées à la fin du rang, tournez et tricotez le rang retour en laissant 10 m à la fin de ce rang (= 10 m non tricotées de chaque côté). Continuez ainsi en tricotant 5 m de moins à la fin de chaque rang sur l'endroit et sur l'envers (= on a 15 m non tricotées de chaque côté, puis 20 m, et ainsi de suite) jusqu'à ce que le bonnet mesure 25 cm, tricotez ensuite 2 rangs endroit (= 1 côte mousse) sur toutes les mailles de nouveau en augmentant 6 m au 1er rang. Bon tricot!

Irene 12.11.2017 - 14:33:

Si grazie, mi riferivo alla lunghezza da destra a sinstra, cioè quanto misura la riga delle 67 maglie? Secondo la gauge dovrebbe essere intorno a 51cm ma a occhio mi sembra piccola perciò volevo essere sicura...

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 08:55:

Buongiorno Irene. La misura non viene data. Il berretto viene cucito solo lungo il bordo di chiusura delle maglie, quindi non in tondo. Buon lavoro!

Irene 12.11.2017 - 10:22:

Salve. Si possono sapere le misure del cappello? Mi servirebbe soprattutto la lunghezza prima della cucitura. Grazie

DROPS Design 12.11.2017 kl. 12:25:

Buongiorno Irene. Lavora finchè il cappello non misura 25 cm. A questi aggiunge 2 ferri a legaccio e poi intreccia le maglie. Buon lavoro!

Dea 26.02.2017 - 15:58:

Buongiorno. Il diagramma mostra i ferri tutti sul diritto, ma bisogna lavorarlo avanti e indietro, quindi il 1 ferro sarà di andata ( a diritto) il secondo di ritorno (a rovescio) e così via? Grazie.

DROPS Design 26.02.2017 kl. 16:10:

Buonasera Dea. Sì è corretto.  Il primo ferro (dal basso) è un ferro di andata a diritto,  il secondo un ferro di ritorno a rovescio e così via. Buon lavoro!

Hej, i mönstret för mössan är antalet maskor efter minskningen 67. Om man stickar mönstret 5 ggr blir det 60 m + bägge sidornas 3 m = 66. Hur är det tänkt att man skall göra med 1 m som 'blir över'?

DROPS Design 13.01.2016 kl. 08:16:

Hej. "Sticka 3 m rätst, sticka A.1 (= 12 m) 5 ggr på bredden, sticka första m i A.1 så att mönstret blir symetriskt i varje sida, 3 m rätst." Den maskan stickas alltså som första m i A.1 innan du stickar de sista 3 rätstickade m. Lycka till!

Liebes Drops-Team, Die Poncho-Mützen-Kragenkombination ist traumhaft schön, danke für die Anleitung! Ich möchte die Kombination gerne zu einem Geburtstag verschenken. Könnt ihr in etwa sagen wann das Drops-Melody-Garn rauskommen wird, damit ich weiß ob es zeitlich noch reicht wenn ich warte, oder ob ich besser Brushed Alpaca bestelle? Lieben Gruß Annika

DROPS Design 13.09.2015 kl. 13:15:

Liebe Annika, einen ganz genauen Termin, wann das Garn zu kaufen ist, kann ich Ihnen auch nicht sagen, vielleicht rufen Sie einfach bei Ihrem DROPS-Händler an oder greifen doch auf Brushed Alpaca Silk zurück, das Garn ist ja auch wunderschön und flauschig.

Susann Sundell 25.08.2015 - 13:07:

Ser att man kan sticka denna modell i Melody, när får ni det garnet?

DROPS Design 26.08.2015 kl. 14:28:

Hej Susan. Der er ikke leveringstid paa dette garn endnu, men saa snart mere er bekendt, saa laegger vi det ud paa hjemmesiden

Nicole Grund 14.07.2015 - 19:34:

Sie schreiben, dass man auch Garn Melody (D) benutzen kann. Ich finde dieses Garn aber nicht!

DROPS Design 20.07.2015 kl. 12:21:

Das Garn kommt bald neu ins Programm und ist noch nicht erhältlich.

Kathy 23.06.2015 - 19:53:

I don't see the chart for this hat pattern. Am I missing something?

DROPS Design 24.06.2015 kl. 08:49:

Dear Kathy, diagram text has been edited, you can now see diagram again. Happy knitting!
