REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE K 1 round while dec 44-40 sts evenly = 102-114 sts. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Now work pattern as follows: Work * A.1 (= 24 sts), A.2 - see diagram for correct size (= 10-14 sts) *, repeat from *-* 2 more times on round. When entire A.1a and A.2a have been worked vertically, repeat A.1a and A.2a 4-5 more times vertically. Piece measures approx. 24-27 cm / 9½"-10½''. Then work A.1b over A.1a and A.2b over A.2a. When entire diagram has been worked vertically there are 27 sts on round in both sizes. Work 2 more round while K tog all sts 2 by 2 = 7 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Hat measures 32-35 cm / 12½"-13 3/4'' in total (includes rib).
