INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth – for hat):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

INCREASE TIP (for wrist warmers and hat):
All increases are made from the right side!
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on the next round/row knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

DECREASE TIP (for hat):
All decreases are made from the right side!
Decrease 1 stitch after the marker thread as follows: Knit 2 together.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
The piece is worked back and forth on the needle and is sewn together mid back to finish. 
Loosely cast on 122-142 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side) with needle size 2.5 mm and Alpaca. Purl 1 row from the wrong side, then work rib (= knit 2/ purl 2) with 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – see description above, in each side.
When the piece measures 6 cm, change to needle size 3 mm and insert 5 marker threads in the piece from the right side as follows: Insert 1 marker thread after 1 stitch, the next 4 are inserted with 24-28 stitches between them, after the last marker thread, there are 25-29 stitches. Now continue working in garter stitch. On the next row from the right side, increase 1 stitch after all the marker threads (= 5 stitches increased) – read INCREASE TIP! REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Increase in this way every 2nd row 3 more times and then every 4th row a total of 7 times = 177-197 stitches. When the piece measures 11-12 cm from the rib decrease 1 stitch after each marker thread on the next row from the right side (= 5 stitches decreased) – read DECREASE TIP! Decrease in this way every 2nd row a total of 17-19 times = 92-102 stitches.
Work all stitches together 2 and 2 on each row from the right side a total of 3 times = 12-13 stitches. The hat measures approx. 25-26 cm.
Pull 1 thread through the remaining stitches and pull tight. Sew the hat together mid back inside 1 edge stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

RIGHT WRIST WARMER: 
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles. 
Cast on 65-70 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and Alpaca. Knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2/ purl 3). After 4 rounds rib, decrease all purl 3 to purl 2 by purling together the 2 first stitches in every purl section = 52-56 stitches. Continue rib with knit 2/purl 2 until the piece measures 5-6 cm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 7-11 stitches evenly on round = 45 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work stocking stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 14 cm start increasing to thumb gusset. Increase 1 stitch on each side of the next to last stitch on the round (i.e. on the inside of the hand) – READ INCREASE TIP! Increase in this way on each side of the increased stitches every 3rd round a total of 6-7 times = 13-15 thumb stitches and 57-59 stitches in total. When the piece measures 19-20 cm place the thumb stitches + 1 stitch on each side of these on 1 thread (= 15-17 stitches on the thread). Cast on 3 new stitches behind the thumb on the next round = 45 stitches on the needle. When the piece measures 23-24 cm, increase 11-15 stitches evenly on the next round = 56-60 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm. Work 8 rounds rib in the round (= knit 1/ purl 1). Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The wrist warmer measures approx. 25-26 cm.

THUMB: 
The piece is worked in the round.
Place the stitches from the thread back on double pointed needles size 3 mm and, in addition, knit up 5-7 stitches in the edge at the back of the thumb stitches = 20-24 stitches on the needle. Work 3 rounds stocking stitch. Change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work 6 rounds rib (= knit 1/ purl 1). Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. 

LEFT WRIST WARMER:
Work as for right, but increase for thumb on each side of the second stitch on the round (instead of the next to last).

Bonjour. Lorsque vous dites pour le bonnet  « Quand l'ouvrage mesure 11-12 cm depuis les côtes » est-ce depuis le bord inférieur de l’ouvrage, c’est-à-dire depuis le début ou bien à partir du 1er rang point mousse ( dernier rang de côtes)? Merci 😊

DROPS Design 08.03.2019 kl. 08:07:

Bonjour Frisotti, on mesure ces 11-12 cm à partir du début point mousse (= après les côtes), pas à partir du rang de montage. Bon tricot!

Sylvie Allard 02.02.2019 - 15:55:

Bonjour ! Pouvez-vous m’expliquer cette partie de la mitaine ? Tricoter 1 tour endroit en diminuant 7-11 mailles à intervalles réguliers = 45 mailles. Je ne comprends pas comment je dois l’exécuter. Merci !

DROPS Design 04.02.2019 kl. 11:20:

Bonjour Mme Allard, vous tricotez un tour sur les 52-56 mailles et en même temps, tricotez 2 m ens à l'end à intervalles réguliers un total de 7-11 fois - cette leçon explique comment placer les diminutions. Bon tricot!

Maryanne 23.07.2018 - 07:20:

What is the best bind off method for the gloves?I've started a normal bind off but I'm worried it will be too tight.

DROPS Design 23.07.2018 kl. 08:10:

Hi Maryanne, If your binding off is too tight, you can use a size larger needle to bind off or make 1 yarn over regularly while binding off. The yarn overs are bound off as normal stitches. Happy knitting!

Janice Hite 15.07.2018 - 02:46:

I have been decreasing on the hat and got to this point: "Work all stitches together 2 and 2 on each row from the right side a total of 3 times = 12-13 stitches. The hat measures approx. 25-26 cm / 9 3/4"-10 1/4''." I don't know what this means. Thank you

DROPS Design 15.07.2018 kl. 14:30:

Hi Janice, You knit 2 stitches together, then knit 2 stitches together and so on to the end of the round and do this for 3 rounds. You are then left with 12-13 stitches depending on the size you are working. The measurements are from the cast-on edge to where you have worked so far. Happy knitting!

Det går inte att skriva ut mönstret DROPS Serenity 180-35 på svenska. Det kommer inte med någon beskrivning, bara bild och info.

Screve Isabelle 19.11.2017 - 08:59:

Je débute en tricot... esy-il normal que le modele de bonnet soit d'un cote droit et de l'autre arrondi ? Un peu comme un D Merci

DROPS Design 20.11.2017 kl. 09:30:

Bonjour Mme Screve, on augmente d'abord dans la partie point mousse pour créer la forme du béret puis on va diminuer. En cas de doute, n'hésitez pas à montrer votre ouvrage à votre magasin (même par mail), un visuel leur permettra de vous aider. Bon tricot!

Irena 06.10.2017 - 14:07:

Wszystko jasne - dziękuję za pomoc :)))

Irena 05.10.2017 - 18:20:

Witam. Czapeczka zrobiona, ale mam dylemat z mitenką-z opisu wynika, że po zrobieniu 14 cm należy dodawać na kciuk po jednym oczku z każdej strony. 6 razy co 3 okrążenie. 6 razy dwa oczka daje mi 12 oczek. W opisie jest, że 13. Skąd to trzynaste oczko?

DROPS Design 05.10.2017 kl. 22:33:

Witaj Ireno! Na klinek kciuka dodajemy po 1 oczku z obu stron przedostatniego oczka w okrążeniu (mamy 3 oczka klinka). Dalej dodajemy oczka z obu stron dodanych oczek i powtarzamy dodawanie oczek jeszcze 6 razy. Na koniec mamy 12 dodanych oczek + 1 oczko na środku (przedostatnie oczko w okr.)= 13 oczek. Powodzenia!

Sul ferro successivo dal diritto del lavoro, aumentare 1 maglia dopo tutti i segnapunti (= 5 aumenti) – leggere il pSUGGERIMENTO PER GLI AUMENTI! FARE ATTENZIONE ALLA TENSIONE DEL LAVORO! Aumentare in questo modo ogni 2 e 3 ferri e poi ogni 4 ferri per un totale di 7 volte = 177-197 maglie. Modello 180/35. Non riesco a capire quando aumentare le maglie??😱

DROPS Design 10.09.2017 kl. 11:50:

Buongiorno Barbara. Abbiamo corretto il testo. Dopo aver aumentato la prima volta, deve aumentare ogni 2 ferri altre 3 volte e poi ogni 4 ferri per un totale di 7 volte (quindi in tutto aumenta 11 volte per un totale di 55 maglie in più). Buon lavoro!

Me encantan todos los tejidos pero este en especial me gusta para mi hija.
