INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

INCREASE TIP (for the pig):
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row, knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

STRIPES (for the pig):
* 4 rows stocking stitch with white, 4 rows stocking stitch with light pink *, repeat from *-*.

DECREASE TIP-1 (for the pig):
Start 2 stitches before the marker thread and knit 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased).

DECREASE TIP-2 (for the pig):
Decrease as follows after the marker: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over.
Decrease as follows before the marker: Knit 2 together.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Loosely cast on (68) 80-92-96-104 (112-116) stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and Baby Merino. Work rib (= knit 2/ purl 2) for (2) 3-3-4-4 (5-5) cm. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and knit 1 round and decrease 8 stitches evenly on round = (60) 72-84-88-96 (104-108) stitches. Continue with GARTER STITCH – see description above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures (11) 11-12-13-14 (14-15) cm – adjust so that the next round is a round of knit, decrease (6) 8-7-8-8 (8-9) stitches evenly on round. Decrease in this way every 2nd round (5) 5-5-5-5 (6-6) more times = (24) 24-42-40-48 (48-45) stitches. On the next round of knit, knit all the stitches together 2 and 2. Purl 1 round and repeat the decreases on the next round of knit in sizes 6/9, 12/18 months and (2 - 3/4) years (do not decrease any more stitches in the other sizes) = (12) 12-11-10-12 (12-12) stitches.
Thread a double strand through the remaining stitches and fasten well.
----------------------------------------------------------

PIG:
The piece is worked back and forth on the needle from the snout backwards.
Legs, ears and tale are worked separately and sewn onto the body at the end.

SNOUT AND HEAD:
Cast on 6 stitches with needle size 2.5 mm and light pink.
NOTE: The outermost stitch in each side is knitted on every row to finished length (= edge stitch).
ROW 1 (= wrong side): READ INCREASE TIP! Knit 1, * 1 yarn over, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* 3 more times, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 11 stitches.
ROW 2 (= right side): Knit.
ROW 3: Knit 1, * 1 yarn over, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* 8 more times, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 21 stitches.
ROW 4: Knit.
ROW 5: Knit 1, * 1 yarn over, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* 18 more times, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 41 stitches.
ROW 6: Knit.
ROW 7: Knit. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
ROWS 8-9: Work stocking stitch.
ROW 10: Knit 1, * knit 3, knit 2 together *, repeat from *-* 6 more times, knit 2, knit 2 together, knit 1 = 33 stitches.
ROWS 11-13: Work stocking stitch.
ROW 14: Knit 1, * knit 4, knit 2 together *, repeat from *-* 4 more times, knit 2 = 28 stitches.
ROWS 15-20: Work stocking stitch.
ROW 21: Knit 1, purl 10, 1 yarn over, purl 6, 1 yarn over, purl 10, knit 1 = 30 stitches.
ROW 22: Knit.
ROW 23: Knit 1, purl 11, 1 yarn over, purl 6, 1 yarn over, purl 11, knit 1 = 32 stitches.
ROW 24: Knit.
ROW 25: Knit 1, purl 12, 1 yarn over, purl 6, 1 yarn over, purl 12, knit 1 = 34 stitches.
ROW 26: Knit.
Continue the increases in this way until there are 40 stitches on the needle. Continue working as follows:
ROW 32: Knit.
ROW 33: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, purl 16, 1 yarn over, purl 6, 1 yarn over, purl 16, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 44 stitches.
ROW 34: Knit.
ROW 35: Knit 1, purl 18, 1 yarn over, purl 6, 1 yarn over, purl 18, knit 1 = 46 stitches.
ROW 36: Knit.
Continue the increases in this way, i.e. increase 2 stitches in the middle of the piece every 2nd row and 1 stitch in each side inside 1 edge stitch every 4th row until there are 92 stitches on the needle. Insert 1 marker.

BODY:
Continue back and forth on the needle. Work 2 cm stocking stitch with light pink (from the marker). Then work STRIPES – see description above, until the piece measures approx. 21 cm from the marker (finish with 1 stripe light pink).
Insert 6 marker threads in the piece from the right side (without working the stitches):
First marker thread is inserted after the first 16 stitches on the row, then insert the next 5 marker threads with 15 stitches between each one (after the last marker thread, there is 1 stitch left on the row).
The piece is now finished in stocking stitch with light pink as follows:
On the first row from the right side decrease 1 stitch before all the marker threads – READ DECREASE TIP-1 (= 6 stitches decreased). Decrease in this way every 2nd row 8 more times = 38 stitches.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: knit 1, knit 2 and 2 stitches together until there is 1 stitch left on the row, finish with knit 1 = 20 stitches.
Work 3 rows stocking stitch and repeat the decreases 1 more time = 11 stitches.
Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, pull tight and fasten.

ASSEMBLY:
Embroider eyes onto the pig – see photo. Sew the pig together all the way from the snout backwards – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch, but leave a small opening to fill through. Fill the pig with wadding and sew up the opening.

LEG:
The piece is worked back and forth on the needle.
Cast on 6 stitches with needle size 2.5 mm and light pink.
ROW 1 (= wrong side): Knit 1, * 1 yarn over, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* 3 more times, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 11 stitches.
ROW 2 (and each row from the right side): Knit.
ROW 3: Knit 1, * 1 yarn over, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* 8 more times, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 21 stitches.
ROWS 4-6: Work stocking stitch.
ROW 7: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, purl until there is 1 stitch left on the row, 1 yarn over, knit 1.
ROW 8: Knit.
Repeat rows 7 and 8 until there are 27 stitches on the row.
Knit 1 row from the right side with white. Change to 2 strands of white and work 4 rows of rib (= knit 1/ purl 1) with 1 edge stitch knit in each side, before casting off with knit over knit and purl over purl.
Work a total of 4 legs. Sew the leg seams in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch. Fill each leg with wadding and sew the legs to the underside of the pig. The front legs are positioned approx. where the stripes start up by the neck, with approx. 3-4 cm between each leg. The back legs are positioned approx, 3-4 cm before the decreases on the pig start.

EAR:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles bottom up.
Cast on 6 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and light pink (divide the stitches between 2 double pointed needles so that there are 3 stitches on each needle and you work with the 3rd needle).
ROUND 1: * Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 10 stitches.
ROUND 2: Knit.
ROUND 3: * Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 3, 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 14 stitches.
ROUND 4: Knit.
ROUND 5: * Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 5, 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 18 stitches.
ROUND 6: Knit.
Continue the increases in this way every 2nd round until there are 38 stitches on the round. Work stocking stitch in the round until the ear measures 9 cm. Insert 1 marker in each side (i.e. between 2 knitted stitches in each side). Continue by decreasing 1 stitch on each side of both markers – READ DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease in this way every 2nd round 3 more times = 22 stitches.
The next round is worked as follows: * Knit together the next 10 stitches 2 and 2, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 12 stitches. Knit 1 round, then cast off all stitches. Use a needle to baste the opening at the cast-on edge at the bottom of the ear. Work 1 more ear in the same way and sew the ears on to the pink area on top of the head (there should be approx. 7 cm between the ears on top of the head) – see photo if required.

TAIL:
Cast on 20 stitches with needle size 2.5 mm and 2 strands light pink. Work 2 stitches in each stitch = 40 stitches. Loosely cast off, cut the strand and sew the tail on to the back of the pig.

COLLAR:
Cast on 65 stitches with needle size 2.5 mm and 2 strands white.
The first row is worked as follows from the right side: Knit 1 edge stitch, * knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* until there are 2 stitches left on the row and finish with knit 1 and knit 1 edge stitch. Continue rib in this way until the collar measures 2 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.
Place the collar around the pig’s neck right behind the ears, place it with a small overlap on the top of the pig and fasten with a few stitches. Sew a button on to the collar for decoration.

Dank u voor het antwoord. Ik schrijf het in mijn notitieboek erbij voor een volgend mutsje (deze is al af ;-)

Lizeth 20.11.2018 - 14:43:

Goedendag, De vraag gaat over het mutsje. Ik zou graag een boord van 1 recht 1 averecht breien (i.p.v. 2r 2 av). Heeft dat effect op hoe strak de boord is, wordt de boord dan losser of strakker? Alvast bedankt voor uw antwoord. Vriendelijke groet, Lizeth

DROPS Design 22.11.2018 kl. 11:17:

Dag Lizeth,

Deze aanpassing kan je zonder problemen doen. Waarschijnlijk wordt de boord dan ietsje rekbaarder, maar blijft ongeveer dezelfde pasvorm houden.

Elin Backstrand 24.10.2018 - 19:08:

Öronen jag gjort får en mycket längre del utan ökning, ska inte örat vara totalt ca 9 cm? Gör isf att ökningar är lite mer än 3 cm, mellandelen bör göra det hela 7 cm för sista biten blir ca 2 cm. Gör man dem totalt 11 cm blir de jättelånga.

DROPS Design 30.10.2018 kl. 10:18:

Hej Elin, jo du skall fortsätta ökningen på var annat varv till du har 38 maskor, när du har det fortsätter du med örat till du har 9 cm. Sedan minskar du enligt mönstret. Lycka till :)

Vivi 28.05.2018 - 11:55:

Jeg lurer på pinne 1. Det står at det skal legges opp 6 masker, men at pinne 1 skal man starte med 1rett, 1 kast, 1 vrang. «1 kast, 1 vrang» skal gjentas 3 ganger. Betyr dette at det skal være 6 masker til dette og 2 masker til kantene? I tillegg står det på øketips at kastene skal strikkes på vrang på neste pinne. Men på pinne 2 står det rett strikk, skal det være rett og vrang her? Eller bare rett?

DROPS Design 06.06.2018 kl. 13:09:

Hei Vivi Det er 1 kantmaske i hver side, og disse strikkes rett. Det står at du skal gjenta *1 kast, 1 vrang* 3 ganger til = totalt 4 ganger. Av de 6 maskene du la opp strikkes derfor 1 rett, 4 vrang, 1 rett, med kast mellom = 5 masker økt og 11 masker på pinnen. På øketips står det du skal strikke kastene vridd (ikke vrang) – dette for ikke å få hull. Da strikker du i bakerste maskebue. Vedlagt ligger en video av hvordan å strikke kast vridd. God fornøyelse.

Volgens mij zit e een fout in het patroon van het varken. Bij het lijf moet je minderen van 38 naar 20 steken, maar als je de beschrijving zoals in het patroon volgt kom je uit op 21 steken (38-4=32, 34/2=17, 17+4=21). Hetzelfde geldt voor het minderen van 20 naar 11 steken.
