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.

See diagram A.1. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.

Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, change to double pointed needles when necessary. Cast on 96 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and black. Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 12 stitches evenly on round (knit every 7th and 8th stitch together) = 84 stitches. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work A.1 in the round (= 7 repeats of 12 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 has been completed the piece measures approx. 17 cm. Continue with stocking stitch and black. When the piece measures 19 cm insert 6 marker threads in the piece with 14 stitches between each. Continue with stocking stitch and decrease 1 stitch after each marker thread – read DECREASE TIP (= 6 stitches decreased). Decrease in this way every 2nd round a total of 3 times, then every round a total of 3 times = 48 stitches left on needle.
* On the next round, knit all stitches twisted together, 2 and 2, knit 1 round without decreases *, work from *-* one more time = 12 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The hat measures approx. 24 cm from top down.

Hej! Jag försöker sticka Northwaymössan, men när jag lägger upp 96 maskor enligt mönstret blir det snarare ett strumpskaft, alldeles för få maskor för en mössa! Hur ska jag göra?\r\nVänliga hälsningar Anki Werme

Hallo, ich habe noch Reste von DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk, die ich gerne für die Mütze verwenden würde. Kann ich also das Garn einfach benutzen, da es auch für Nadel 5 empfohlen wird, oder sollte ich besser den Faden doppelt nehmen?

Liebe Maria, beide Garne Brushed Alpaca silk und Air gehören der Garngruppe C, aber diese Garne habe unterschiedlichen Strukturen so daß es unterschiedlich aussehen wird. Am besten stricken Sie zuerst eine Maschenprobe, so haben Sie eine Idee ob es Ihnen so gefällt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Could you advise on making the hat smaller? Less repeats? 6 instead of 7?

Perhaps I cannot find it, but there is no where to download the pfd for your products. I use your patterns and have never had trouble before. I tried to use print, which in some cases gives you the option to also create a pfd, but it does not work. It prints only. Please advise.

Dear Elizabeth, please look for the print pattern button, and then Right next to teh Alpaca Party ad, there should be a "Continue to print the pattern →" button (at the upper right side), which should take you to the print window, where the save to PDF button is available. It works in my computer, if it does not appear on oyurs, sou might need to check your settings. Happy Crafting!
