Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.

To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on round (e.g. 120 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 12) = 10.
In this example knit approx. every 9th and 10th stitch together.

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to decrease at the top of hat):
Begin 2 stitches before marker thread and knit 2 together, marker thread, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

Worked in the round on a short circular needle, bottom up. Switch to double pointed needles when needed.
Cast on 120-132 stitches on circular needle size 3 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Work rib in the round (= knit 3/purl 3). When rib measures 6 cm, knit 1 round while at the same time decreasing 12-12 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP-1 = 108-120 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work in stocking stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 24-26 cm, insert 4 marker threads in the piece, 27-30 stitches apart each marker thread. On next round decrease 1 stitch on each side of all marker threads – READ DECREASE TIP-2 (= 8 stitches decreased). Decrease like this on every other round 8-8 times in total and then on every round 4-5 times in total = 12-16 stitches remain. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Piece measures approx. 31-33 cm from top and down. Fold up rib at the bottom.

Make a pompom, approx. 7 cm in diameter and fasten it at the top of hat.
