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 from right side as follows: Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, knit 1, A.1 (= 1 stitch) (= 1 stitch increased), * A.2 over the next 21-22-23 (24-25) stitches, A.3 over the next 3 stitches (= 2 stitches decreased), A.4 over the next 21-22-23 (24-25) stitches, A.5 over the next 2 stitches (= 1 stitch increased) *, A.1 over the next stitch, 9-10-11 (12-13) stitches in garter stitch, A.3 over the next 3 stitches (= 2 stitches decreased) (= 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 (= 1 stitch increased), work from *-* 1 more time, finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
Then work next row from wrong side as follows:
Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, *A.5 over 3 stitches, A.4 over 20-21-22 (23-24) stitches (i.e. skip last square in diagram, this stich in A.4 has been decreased in A.3), A.3 over 3 stitches, skip 1st square in diagram A.2, and work the remaining stitches in A.2 over 20-21-22 (23-24) stitches *, A.1 over 2 stitches, A.5 over 3 stitches, 8-9-10 (11-12) stitches in garter stitch (i.e. the stitches in garter stitch are decreased in A.3), A.3 over 3 stitches, 8-9-10 (11-12) stitches in garter stitch (i.e. one stitch in garter stitch has been decreased in A.3), A.1 over 2 stitches, work from *-* 1 more time, A.1 over 2 stitches, purl 1 stitch and finish with 1 stitch in garter stitch.
I.e. There will be 1 stitch less in each A.2 and A.4 (i.e. skip 1 square in the diagram for every 2nd row of diagram A.2 and A.4) and 1 stitch less in garter stitch in mid front on each side of A.3 on every 2nd row because of the decrease in A.3.
Continue the pattern like this, i.e. decrease 1 stitch on each side of each A.3 on every row from the right side (= 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 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. Work 1 more cord in the same way. Sew the cords to the bottom tip of each ear-flap in each side.

Liebes DROPS-Team, ein bisschen beiße ich mir an der Anleitung auch die Zähne aus - daher meine Frage: Muss ich nicht, wenn ich am Ende von A.4 und am Anfang von A.2 in der Rückrunde eines der Diagramm-Kästchen überspringe, dies auch in der folgenden Hinrunde tun? Danke!

DROPS Design 09.04.2019 kl. 10:04:

Liebe Soese, es werden 2 M in A.3 abgenommen = die letzte Masche in A.2 und die erste M in A.4, dh bei der nächsten Hinreihe, stricken Sie übrigen Maschen in A.4 und in A.2 (= 1 Masche weniger als bei der vorrigen Rückreihe). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Anita 12.03.2019 - 16:19:

Menade de räta maskorna i slutet på A4.

Anita 12.03.2019 - 16:14:

Storlekarna stämmer inte. Modellen på bilden har en mössa som enligt beskrivningen är storlek 6/9 mån. (Har studerat antalet räta maskor i början av A2) Barnet är helt uppenbart yngre än så. Frustrerande när man varit noggrann med masktätheten och mössan ändå blir för liten.

DROPS Design 21.03.2019 kl. 14:12:

Hei Anita. Det er ganske individuelt hvor stort hode man har når man blir født, og som du kan se er det ikke veldig mange cm forskjell på de 2 minste størrelsene: 40/42 cm og 42/44 cm. Det er derfor vi også oppgir hodemål, så man kan kontrollere den faktiske hodeomkretsen før man begynner å strikke. God fornøyelse

Soese 04.03.2019 - 23:06:

Hallo, die Maschenprobe stimmt, aber ich habe mit den angegebenen 135 Maschen dermaßen viel auf der Nadel, dass ich mir die Mütze nicht mehr als Baby-/Kleinkindmütze vorstellen kann. Wie ist die Strickrichtung? Wo ist am Ende die Anschlagkante? Vielen Dank für Ihre Rückmeldung!

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 10:37:

Liebe Soese, die Mütze wird von oben nach unten gestrickt - die Anschlagskante ist um herum den Kopf, das Muster wird ein Zigzag (siehe Foto) bilden, deshalb braucht man mehr Maschen als für eine ganz einfache Mütze. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Barbara Jentsch 01.03.2019 - 01:12:

Oh Mann, was ist diese Anleitung kompliziert geschrieben 🤔

DROPS Design 01.03.2019 kl. 10:19:

Liebe Frau Jentsch, lesen Sie zuerst die ganze Anleitung, dann können Sie die verschiedenen Diagramme ausschneiden und dann zusammen legen, um zu verstehen, wie es geht. Gerne können Sie hier Ihre Frage stellen oder wenden Sie sich an den Laden, wo Sie Ihre Wolle gekauft haben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Mallin kuviopiirrokset A1-A5 puuttuvat. Saisiko ne pikaisesti näkyviin, kiitos.

DROPS Design 11.12.2018 kl. 16:59:

Nyt piirrokset avautuvat.

Birthe Tronsgaard Jensen 26.11.2018 - 15:10:

Hvor skal jeg så strikke den ekstra maske som ikke er indtegnet i diagrammet?

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 08:59:

Hei Birthe. Det er som sagt 22 masker tegnet inn i diagrammet. Hvis du sikter til den sorte ruten på omgang 4 så er dette fordi du felte 1 maske på omgang 3, slik at det nå kun er 21 masker i A.2. Dette øker til 22 masker igjen på 4 omgang ved å lage 1 kast. Men den sorte ruten hoppes bare over. God fornøyelse.

Teija Niemi 25.11.2018 - 08:52:

Mistä löydän ruutupiirrokset A.1-A.5?

Birthe Tronsgaard Jensen 24.11.2018 - 21:41:

Efter retstrikning skal man følge A2 over 22 masker, men i flg, diagrammmet er der kun 21 masker ... kan det passe ?

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 10:53:

Hei Birthe. Jeg regner med du strikker størrelse 6/9 mnd siden du skal strikke A.2 over 22 masker. Det er 22 masker i A.2 for denne størrelsen - det er 21 masker i A.2 for størrelse 1/3 mnd, og A.2 skal da også strikkes over 21 masker. God fornøyelse.

Kirsten 17.11.2018 - 19:48:

Hvor kan man se hvor mange gange du skal strikke a3 i diagrammer

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 12:05:

Hei Kirsten. Du gjentar A.3 oppover til du har 21 masker igjen på pinnen. Da måler arbeidet ca 16-16-17 (17-18) cm fra nederste spiss ved første og siste A.3 (= øreklaff). God fornøyelse.
