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 diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size.

The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Cast on 72-84-84-96 (96-108) stitches with double pointed needles size 4 mm and Puna. Work A.1a (= 12 stitches) over all stitches (= 6-7-7-8 (8-9) times in width). When A.1a has been completed 1 time in height, work A.1b over A.1a. Continue like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures approx, 10-11-12-12 (12-13) cm, adjust to after a whole repeat of A.1b in height, work A.2 over A.1b (there are now approx. 4-4-4-5 (5-5) cm left). When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height, there are 24-28-28-32 (32-36) stitches on the needles. Knit together all stitches 2 and 2 on the next 2 rounds (= a total of 2 times) = 6-7-7-8 (8-9) stitches. Cut the strand and pull it through the remaining stitches. Pull tight and fasten well. The hat measures approx. 14-15-16-17 (17-18) cm.

Hi. I’m confused as the pattern calls for two blank squares from diagram instructions. One calls for 3 stitches on cable neddle and other calls for 1 but I don’t see where those stitches are? I’m confused please help!

Dear Vilma, when there is a white square alone, knit this stitch, when 2 white squares do have a diagonal crossing them, you will work these stitches as explained under diagram key, ie 9th and 10th symbol, when 3 white squares have a diagonal crossing them, you work these 3 sts as explained under 7th and 8th symbol and the 4 white squares with a diagonal is worked as 3rd and 4th symbol and so on. Happy knitting!

Hallo, ich habe jetzt in allen Österreichischen Shops nachgefragt aber leider haben diese bzw. bekommen Sie diese nicht mehr. Bitte könnten Sie mir gegen Bezahlung diese Drops Baby Hefte (31+29) Verkaufen und zusenden? Lg Jaqueline

Liebe Frau Schwarz, es kann sein, daß die Hefte schon alles ausverkauft sein, die Anleitungen bleiben aber immer online frei zum drücken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hallo, Komme aus Österreich und habe eine Bitte, ich habe gesehen das Sie zwei neue Drops Baby Hefte (31 + 29) haben kann ich diese als Heft Format bei euch kaufen? Möchte diese meiner Mama zu Weihnachten schenken. Lg Jaqueline

Liebe Frau Schwarz, gerne können Sie Ihr DROPS Laden mal fragen, ob Sie noch einige Hefte haben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lovely pattern! Is it possible to knit this pattern using circular needles rather than double-pointed ones? Thank you.

DROPS Design 17.07.2018 kl. 07:38:

Dear Suzanne, of course you can use either a shorter, about 40 vm long, circuar needle, or a longer one with the magic loop techniques. The following video will show you how to us the magic loop technique: Happy Knitting!

Bonjour, lorsque vous écrivez tricoter A.1a puis A.1b au-dessus et continuer ainsi, cela veut-il dire qu'il faut tricoter A.1a + A.1b ou seulement A.1b ? D'avance, je vous remercie pour la réponse que vous voudrez bien m'apporter. Bien cordialement.

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 09:40:

Bonjour Mme Le Niliot, vous tricotez d'abord les 4 rangs de A.1a et continuez ensuite en répétant les 4 rangs de A.1b en hauteur. Bon tricot!
