INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Choose diagram for your size.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
The piece is worked back and forth from mid back and is sewn together mid back to finish. Cast on 123-129-135 (141-147) stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side) with needle size 2.5 mm and BabyMerino. Work 4 RIDGES – see description above. 
Then work the next row as follows: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, knit 1, A.1 (= 1 stitch), * A.2 over the next 21-22-23 (24-25) stitches, A.3 over the next 3 stitches, A.4 over the next 21-22-23 (24-25) stitches, A.5 over the next 2 stitches *, A.1 over the next stitch, 9-10-11 (12-13) stitches in garter stitch, A.3 over the next 3 stitches (= mid front of hat), 9-10-11 (12-13) stitches in garter stitch, A.5 over the next 2 stitches, A.1 over the next stitch, work from *-* 1 more time, finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the pattern like this, i.e. decrease 1 stitch on each side of each A.3 every 2nd row (= 6 stitches decreased), and increase 1 stitch in each of A.1 and A.5 (= 6 stitches increased). In other words, the number of stitches stays the same, you increase and decrease the same number of stitches, but the ridges mid front and the patterns in A.2 and A.4 are will disappear. Continue with knit over knit, purl over purl, garter stitch over garter stitch and cable over cable. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 and A.5 have been worked 1 time in height, continue with knit over knit and garter stitch over garter stitch over these stitches, i.e. do not increase any more. When you do not have enough stitches for the cables, do not work cables; the remaining stitches here are worked in stocking stitch Continue the pattern as before over the remaining stitches, i.e. decrease 6 stitches every 2nd round (= 2 stitches by each A.3), until there are 21 stitches left on the needle. The piece measures approx. 16-16-17 (17-18) cm = 6 1/4”- 6 1/4”-6 3/4” (6 3/4”-7”) from the bottom tip of the first and last A.3 (= ear flaps).
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Knit 1, knit 2 together, 15 stitches pattern as before, knit 2 together, knit 1 = 19 stitches.
Decrease like this in each side every row (from the wrong side purl together the 2 stitches before and after the edge stitches) until there are 5 stitches left on the needle. Cut the yarn and pull the end through the remaining stitches and tighten. 

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the hat together mid back inside the 1 edge stitch. 
The middle tip of the 3 whole tips (= A.3) on the cast-on edge goes down onto the forehead mid front.

CORD:
Cast on 4 stitches with needle size 2.5 mm. Work as follows: * Knit 1, move the strand to front of piece (towards you), slip 1 stitch as if to purl, move the strand to back of piece again (away from you) *, work from *-* 1 more time and then continue in the same way on all rows to finished length. 
You have now worked a round cord. Cast off when the cord measures approx. 20-22-24 (26-28) cm = 8”-8 3/4”-9 1/2” (10 1/4”-11”). Work 1 more cord in the same way. Sew the cords to the bottom tip of each ear-flap in each side.

Stämmer mönstret verkligen? Får det inte att stämma, varv två i mönsterstickningen fungerar inte. Tror det är A3 som rör till det.

DROPS Design 12.04.2018 kl. 13:19:

Hei Ann-Cathrin. Mønsteret stemmer så det er bare å fortsette å strikke. Det er mange små diagrammer som må settes sammen på dette mønsteret, og det kan være utfordrende å holde oversikt. Et tips er å sette merketråder på hver side av diagrammene for å lettere holde oversikten. A3 har fellling av 2 masker annenhver omgang, og det «tas» en maske fra A.2 og en fra A.4 hver gang det felles. A.2 og A.4 opphører etterhvert, som forklart i oppskriften. God fornøyelse

Ich habe mich sehr über das neue Modell (ähnlich dem Aladdin) gefreut. Nun habe ich aber frustriert aufgegeben. Das Muster ist total schlecht erklärt, man muss immer zwischen Text uns Muster hin und her wechseln, gleichzeitig alles rückwärts denken für die Rückreihen und dann ist es nicht selbsterklärend, wann sich die Muster wie auflösen sollen. Besser wäre es, eine Steickschrift über das ganze Muster zu haben.

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 13:56:

Liebe Jess, ich habe dieses Modell vor kurzem gestrickt, die ersten Reihen brauchen etwas mehr Konzentration, dann geht es wieder: wenn Sie A.3 stricken werden die Muster A.2 und A.4 immer über weniger Maschen gestrickt, dh A.3 wird A.2 und A.4 abnehmen. Setzen Sie so viel Markierer wie Sie brauchen (z.B. zwischen jedes Diagram), und dann geht es einfacher. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kunde jag få ett svar på min kommentar som jag skickade för ca 1 månad. Gäller det svårtydda mönstret. Kan man ge förklaringar på ett annat sätt? Mössan är så fin med det fungerar ej på det andra varvet från avan!!

Babo Björkell 19.03.2018 - 13:51:

Jag önskar att ni kunde ge nya förklaringar på mönstet. Då man stickar tillbaks på avigsidan uppstär redan problem med maskorna!! Sen då maskorna ska minskas mellan figuren vållar problem. Kunde man rita upp allt på annat sätt. Modellen helt ljuvlig!!

Es hat gut geklappt mit in Runden Stricken. Evtl ein paar weniger Maschen aufnehmen, da man keine Randmaschen benötigt zum vernähen. Ich habe erst mit Rundstricknadel gestrickt und dann auf ein Nadelspiel mit sechs Nadeln plus eine zum Stricken gewechselt.

Petra Schertel 11.03.2018 - 17:23:

Gibt es auch die Hefte zu kaufen?

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 10:07:

Liebe Frau Schertel, Hefte haben wir keine mehr, aber Anleitung können Sie einfach von hier ausdrücken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Gro Holst - Christensen 08.03.2018 - 17:18:

Jeg har lige startet på luen, og det er noget jeg ikke forstår. Skal den ikke strikkes spejlvendt fra midten og til slut på pinden ? Og diagrammerne er ikke gode. De skal da strikkes fra højre på rettsiden, men fra venstre på vrangpinden.

Anka 07.03.2018 - 19:39:

Ich würde die Arbeit gerne in Runden Stricken. Dann muss ich am Ende nicht zusammen nähen. Spricht etwas dagegen?

DROPS Design 08.03.2018 kl. 09:03:

Liebe Anka, wahrscheinlich können Sie diese Mütze auch in der Runde stricken, aber dann die Anleitung & Strickschrifte so anpassen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
