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.
INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

MAGIC CIRCLE:
To avoid hole in the middle beg with this technique:
Hold yarn end in the left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right). Hold the loop with left thumb and index finger. Insert needle through loop, get yarn from ball (i.e. place yarn 1 time over needle from you), pull yarn back through loop, 1 yarn over (now place yarn from the back and towards you) and pull yarn over through stitches on needle, * insert needle through loop, 1 yarn over (place yarn from the back and towards you), pull yarn over through loop, 1 yarn over (from the back and towards you) and pull yarn over through outermost stitch on right needle (i.e. the last stitch made) *, repeat from *-* until there are 8 stitches on needle. Distribute stitches on 4 double pointed needles size 2.5 mm as explained in pattern.
Then work as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull yarn end so that loop is tighten tog and the hole disappears.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side. See diagrams A.1 and A.2 - choose diagram for your size.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Worked in the round on circular needle, switch to double pointed needles when decreasing at the top of hat. Due to the pattern on the hat, it is available in sizes XS/S and M/L. Should you wish to make a size S/M (fits head size 54/56 cm) you can follow instructions for XS/S but increase ½ needle size.

Cast on 128-152 stitches on circular needle size 2 mm with black and knit 1 round. On next round work rib knit 2 and purl 2 until piece measures approx. 4 cm. Switch to circular needles size 2.5 mm, knit 1 round while decreasing 8 stitches evenly on round = 120-144 stitches. Work diagram A.1 (pattern in diagram is divisible with 8 stitches, but since the diagrams should fit above each other you must start on different part of the pattern depending on size). Work A.1 3-6 times in width. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work diagram 3 times vertically, piece measures approx. 17 cm. Then work A.2 over A.1. When diagram has been worked vertically, 12 stitches remain on needle. Knit stitches together 2 by 2 = 6 stitches. Cut the yarn. Pull yarn through the remaining stitches a couple of times and fasten.

----------------------------------------------------------

MITTENS:
Work mittens in the round on double pointed needles. Work hand from fingers and upwards to thumb gusset. Thumb is worked in the round from the top before casting off for thumb gusset and slip it together with the rest of mitten. Then continue in the round.

MITTEN PART 1:
Start with black and MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above = 8 stitches distributed on 4 double pointed needles 2.5 mm - NOTE: If you do not want to start with a magic circle cast on 8 stitches with black (when mitten is done baste a yarn up and down through stitches around hole at the tip and tighten tog).
Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.3 for left mitten and A.4 for right mitten. When increases in diagram are done, there are 56 stitches on round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue until round marked with arrow in diagram (piece measures approx. 12 from tip), on this round cast off 3 stitches for thumb gusset (the black squares in diagram shows where to cast off). Put mitten aside and work the thumb.

THUMB:
Start with black and MAGIC CIRCLE = 8 stitches distributed on double pointed needles 2.5 mm. Work in the round according to diagram A.5. When increases in diagram are done, there are 20 stitches on round. On last round in diagram cast off 3 stitches for thumb gusset on round (the black squares in diagram shows where to cast off). 17 stitches remain on thumb. The thumb is now done.

MITTEN PART 2:
Now work thumb together with mitten, place thumb on needles where stitches for thumb gusset were cast off on mitten. Continue in the round according to diagram A.3/A.4 over stitches on mitten as before, skip the black squares, here work diagram A.6 (= thumb gusset). Star in A.6 should fit star in A.5 to continue pattern. When diagram A.6 is done, there are 56 stitches on round. Continue according to A.3/A.4. When diagram has been worked, switch to double pointed needle size 2 mm and knit 1 round, then work rib knit 2 and purl 2 for 5 rounds. Loosely cast off stitches with K over K and P over P. Sew the opening between thumb and mitten. Cut the yarn and fasten yarn ends.

Der må altså være et eller andet helt glat med maskeantallet, som Malin og Rebecka også nævner. Min hue kommer i hvert fald kun til at passe et barn! Men altså 120m/26m*10cm giver jo heller ikke 56 cm som står som hovedmål.

Hej Line, vælg den største størrelse, så skal vi se på den mindste størrelse en gang til :)

Line 05.12.2018 - 23:45:

I diagrammet er angivet, hvad jeg antager er en udtagning, men hvordan skal denne strikkes, for det står ikke nævnt i symbolforklaringen.

DROPS Design 06.12.2018 kl. 08:21:

Hei Line. Her manglet symbolforklaringen for kastene som strikkes annenhver omgang (de hvite ovalene). Denne er nå blitt lagt til, og du lager altså 1 kast mellom 2 masker. På neste omgang strikkes kastet vridd rett for å unngå hull. Takk for beskjed og god fornøyelse

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my quaestion, much appreciated.

Anne Blundell 25.08.2018 - 14:07:

Can the hat pattern be adapted to knit straight on two needles? Since I find this much easier than a cisrcular needle

DROPS Design 27.08.2018 kl. 18:52:

Hello Anne. Yes, you can work with straight needles. Just cast on 2 sts more, one each side for the edges. You then follow the instructions as given. The diagram is worked in stocking st. Happy knitting!

Rebecka 28.01.2018 - 19:34:

Jag har precis som Malin stickat en halv vante med fabel på angivna stickor. När jag skickat de första fem raderna med hjärtan så är vanten bara 10 cm istället för 12 och alldeles för smal för en vuxen. Något måste vara fel i mönstret. Har stickat flera olika vantar och sockar efter era mönster men aldrig med det här resultatet.

Malin Bolmhagen 07.01.2018 - 09:04:

Jag har köpt samma garn och samma storlek på stickorna som i beskrivningen. Jag följde mönster för mössa S/M som passade till ett barn 4/5 år och vanten blev oxå i barnstorlek!
