GARTER ST (back and forth):

Worked sideways, back and forth on needle until desired measurements.

Cast on 19 sts on needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Air. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and work next row from RS as follows: 2 edge sts in garter st, A.1 (= 15 sts) and 2 edge sts in garter st. Work back from WS the same way = 24 sts on needle. Work next row as follows from RS: 2 edge sts in garter st, A.2 (= 20 sts) and 2 edge sts in garter st. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION/GAUGE When piece measures approx. 46-50 cm / 18"-19 3/4'' (or desired length - subtract approx. 6 cm / 2 3/8'' from your head circumference), K 1 row while dec 1 st over cable at beg and end of row and 3 sts over the middle cable (dec 1 st by K 2 tog) = 19 sts remain on needle. Switch to needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and K 1 row from WS before binding off with K from RS.

Guten Tag, mich würde interessieren wie viel Wolle ganz genau benötigt wird, da ich noch einen Rest von der Air zu Hause liegen haben. Dies sind aber keine vollen 50g mehr. Vielen Dank

Liebe Steffi, leider haben wir nicht das genaue Gewicht von diesem Stirnband, aber sicher brauchen Sie nicht das ganze Knäuel. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

è presente un errore nella descrizione del diagramma, le 3 maglie trasferite nella 6^ riga devono essere lavorate sul davanti del lavoro e non sul dietro, quindi la corretta spiegazione è: "trasferire 3 m su un f ausiliario sul DAVANTI del lavoro, 2 m rov, 3 m dir dal f ausiliario". ciao!
