HAT:
Worked in the round on circular needle, switch to double pointed needles when needed. Cast on 96 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Nepal. Work A.1 over all sts (= 8 repetitions in width). Work like this until piece measures 4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm. Then work A.2 over all sts (= 8 repetitions) continue this pattern. When piece measures 15 cm, adjust after one whole repetition of A.2, continue with A.3. When A.3 has been worked one time vertically, there are 64 sts on round. On next round K tog all sts 2 by 2 = 32 sts. K 1 round, then K all sts tog 2 by 2 again = 16 sts remain. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Hat measures approx. 26 cm.

Slip the two part on to same circular needle, now work in the round on circular needle size 5 mm = 100 sts. Work in stocking st until piece measures 34 cm. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. Cast off sts with K over K and P over P.

Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm. Work next round as follows: 16 sts in stocking st (= inside hand), A.5 (= 18 sts) and 2 sts in stocking st. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 13-14 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 on every other round 4-5 more times = 46-48 sts. Now slip the 11-13 thumb sts on 1 stitch holder. Continue in the round as before AT THE SAME TIME cast on 1 new st behind thumb on next round = 36-36 sts. When mitten measures approx. 26-28 cm (try the mitten on if needed, approx. 4 cm until finished measurements), insert 1 marker after the 14th st on round and 1 marker after the 34th st. 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 3 times = 12-12 sts remain on round in both sizes. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Die Fäustlinge beginnen mit 36 M. Dann 16 M Rippe und 18 M A4. Das macht 34 M. Was mache ich mit den verbleibenden 2M? A 4 scheint mir exakt das Rippenmuster zu sein, warum. nicht einfach alle 36 M in Rippenmuster?

DROPS Design 01.12.2016 kl. 08:56:

Liebe Katrin, so stricken Sie die 36 M.: 16 M im Rippenmuster, 18 M im A.4 und 2 M re (16+18+2=36 M.). Nach 6-7 cm stricken Sie glatt über die 16 M im Rippenmuster und A.5 über die 16 M. im A.4. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Är de inte mönster A4-6 som skall användas till vantarna?

DROPS Design 26.10.2016 kl. 12:36:

Hej Maria. Ja og nej... Du bruger A.4 og A.5 til höjre vante og A.4 og A.6 til venstre vante.

Anja 08.09.2015 - 12:56:

Beim linken Fäustling heißt es: A.3 statt A.2 stricken. Stimmt das? Eigentlich muß er doch gleich gestrickt werden und nur der Daumen wird an anderer Stelle getrickt, oder?

DROPS Design 08.09.2015 kl. 13:46:

Liebe Anja, Sie haben Recht, da wirkt etwas unstimmig. Es müsste sich eher um A.5 und A.6 handeln statt um A.3 und A.2. A.2 und A.3 gehören zur Mütze. Denn sonst passt das auch gar nicht zu der M-Zahl von 18 M für das Muster. Ich leite das an die Designerinnen weiter.

Me encanta. Parece un proyecto simple e ideal para el invierno.
