See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size.

The piece is worked in the round with short circular needle, bottom up. Change to double pointed needles when necessary.
Cast on 128-144 stitches with short circular needle size 3.5 mm and Karisma. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) until the piece measures 21-22 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! The next round is worked as follows: * A.1 (= 30-34 stitches), purl 2 *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times. Continue the rib in this way and decrease as shown in A.1 – AT THE SAME TIME on the last row of A.1 purl together the 2 purl stitches between each A.1 = 20-20 stitches left on the needles. Knit 1 row where all stitches are knitted together 2 and 2 = 10-10 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The hat measures approx. 31-33 cm from the top down. Turn up an edge of approx. 5-7 cm at the bottom of the hat.


= knit
= purl
= purl 2 together

Olen neulonut joustinneuletta 22cm. Seuraavaksi käsketään neulomaan piirroksen mukaisesti ja sen jälkeen kaksi silmukkaa nurin, mutta eikö siitä silloin tule täsmälleen samanlaista joustineuletta mitä olen koko ajan neulonutkin? Nyt en ymmärrä..

Jeg har nu trevlet huen op 2 gange fordi jeg mangler garn. Den store str. Kræver 3 nøgler garn.

Guten Abend, ich habe bereits die 4 Reihen nach 20 cm schon fertigvor mir. Was bedeutet genau * und **? Was bedeutet 30 Maschen und dann reduzieten...? Ich habe insgesamt 128 Maschen angeschlagen.Das ist meine erste Müze:)

Liebe Sonja, nach 20 cm stricken Sie die nächste Runde wie folgt (= Begin der Abnahmen oben): *A.1 (= 30 M), dann stricken Sie 2 M links*, und Sie wiederholen jetzt vom ersten * bis nächsten *, dh Sie stricken jetzt A.1, 2 M li, A.1, 2 M li, A.1, 2 M li, A.1, 2 M li = 128 M bei der 1. Runde. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jeg sidder og strikker huen og skal til indtagningerne og har stadigvæk 128 masker og på diagrammet er der 120 hvor er de sidste 8 masker..

DROPS Design 13.12.2018 kl. 14:33:

Hei Charlotte. Du skal strikke slik: A.1 (30 masker), 2 vrang og gjenta dette 4 ganger. Altså slik: A.1, 2 vrang, A.1, 2 vrang, A.1, 2 vrang, A.1, 2 vrang. 30 + 2 + 30 + 2 + 30 + 2 + 30 + 2 = 128 masker. God forøyelse.

Susanne Kragelund 26.11.2018 - 08:22:

Jeg kommer til indtagning, der står som i diagrammet 4 x 34 masker, jeg har 144 masker på, der mangler 8 masker ifølge skemaet. Jeg er nybegynder og er ikke vant til at læse opskrifter.

Hi there, please could you add a link from this pattern to your video "how to purl two together twisted"? The women's pattern for Eiken is also missing the link. Cheers!

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 08:45:

Dear Jane, thanks for your feedback, the video has been added under both patterns. Happy knitting!

I\'ve cast on 128 stitches using the tubular cast on method. I have set up the 2/2 ribbing and noticed that the first two stitches are knit stitches and the LAST two stitches are also knit stitches. Is this a mistake in the pattern? Should I rip out the stitches and reduce the number of stitches to 126 to create a 2/2 ribbing ending with two purl stitches?

DROPS Design 16.07.2018 kl. 09:26:

Dear Mrs Fitzmaurice, 128 is divisible by 4, you will work (K2, P2) a total of 32 times, ie starting with K2 and ending round with P2. Happy knitting!

Bei der unterschiedlichen Kopfumfanggröße ist die gleiche Menge Wolle angegeben (100-100g). Ist das ein Druckfehler oder reichen 100g auch für die größere Größe?

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 13:52:

Liebe Frau Bauer, 100 g reichen für jede Größe. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Tina 28.11.2017 - 18:37:

Hallo, ich habe eine grundsätzliche Frage zum Diagramm: Liest man es von links nach rechts oder von rechts nach links? Danke im Voraus für eine Antwort.

DROPS Design 29.11.2017 kl. 09:08:

Liebe Tina, meistens liest man Diagram bei Hinreihen von unten an der rechten Ecke nach links (= und jede Runde wenn man in die Runde strickt), und von links nach rechts bei Rückreihen. Sollten Sie unterschiedlich lesen, dann wird es in der Anleitung beschrieben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Habe die Mütze für die ganze Familie gestrickt. Super einfach. Toll zu tragen. Danke!
