HAT:
Worked in the round on a short circular needle, switch to double pointed needles when needed. Cast on 112 sts in both sizes on circular needle size 2.5 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Work rib in the round according to diagram A.1 (= 7 repetitions of 16 sts). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures approx. 4 cm, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Then work pattern according to diagram A.2 (= 7 repetitions of 16 sts - NOTE: Choose diagram for correct size). When A.2 has been worked 2-3 times in total vertically, piece measures approx. 15-19 cm. Now work and dec according to A.3 (= 7 repetitions of 16 sts – choose diagram for correct size). When A.3 has been worked, 21 sts remain on needle in both sizes. P 1 round where all sts are worked P tog 2 by 2 = 11 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. The hat measures approx. 20-23 cm vertically.

POMPOM:
Make a pompom with an approx. of diameter 4-6 cm and fasten it at the tip of the hat.
