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. Work stripes in stocking stitch. If the stripes are done before correct measurements on hat, continue with light ice blue until finished measurements.

Decrease as follows after every marker thread: Slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 1 stitch decreased).

Worked in the round on a short circular needle, bottom up. Switch to double pointed needles when needed.
Cast somewhat loosely on 130-140 stitches on circular needle size 3.5 mm with dark wash. Work in stocking stitch in the round in STRIPES - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 5 cm, decrease 32-35 stitches evenly (knit every 3rd and 4th stitch together) = 98-105 stitches. Continue in stocking stitch and stripes.
When piece measures 17-16 cm, insert 7 marker threads in piece as follows: * Insert 1 marker thread before next stitch, knit 13-15 stitches *, work from *-* 7 times in total.
On next round, decrease 1 stitch after every marker thread – read DECREASE TIP (= 7 stitches decreased). Decrease like every other round 10-11 times in total and then every round 2-2 times in total = 14 stitches remain on needles. On next round knit all stitches together two by two = 7 stitches remain. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten.
Hat measures approx. 25 cm from top and down in both sizes.

När minskningen ska påbörjas i slutet och det ska sättas markörer så tror jag ni menar "sticka 14-15 rätmaskor" för 13-15 och man väljer 13 så får man sju maskor över. Eller?
