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.
Garter st, when knitting flat: Knit all sts, all rows.

Pattern: See the chart. (1 chart = 1 repeat). The pattern is seen from right side.


First knit the headband, which is then sewn together at the center back. Then pick up stitches around the edge of the headband to knit the top of the hat.

HEAD BAND: With 1 strand of each yarn held together cast on 52 sts and establish pattern as follows:
1st row (WS): K1 (edge st knit in garter st throughout), P 5, K 3, P 3, Pattern 2 (= K3, P3, K4, P6, K2, P6, K4, P3, K3), P 5, K 1 (edge st knit in garter st throughout).

2nd row (RS): K 1, K 5, Pattern 2 (= P3, K3, P4, put 3 sts on st holder in back of work, K 3, K 3 from st holder, P2, put 3 sts on st holder in back of work, K 3, K 3 from st holder, P4, K3, P3), K 3, P 3, K 5, K 1.

Work pattern as established until piece measures approx. 54 - 56 cm - adjust so you finish after a whole or half repeat of the pattern. Bind off.

Sew together the headband at center back. Fold the outermost 6 sts at each side against the wrong side and stitch down (rolled edge).

Top: Pick up 120 sts on double-pointed needles on the inside of the rolled edge in the sts of the headband – but be sure the picked up sts are not visible from the right side.
Join and put 10 markers in work with 12 sts in between each marker. Knit stocking st. After 3 rows dec 1 st on the left side of every marker = 110 sts. Repeat decs every third row 4 times and then every other row 5 times = 20 sts.
Pull a double strand of yarn through the remaining sts and pull tight to close.

Dear Deborah, here is the jumper. Happy crafting!

Pour le M2 est-ce bien les tours endroits qui sont présentés sur le diagramme ? Avec mes meilleures messages

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 11:09:

Bonjour Mme Magnin, tous les tours sont représentés dans le diagramme, ceux sur l'endroit (à lire de droite à gauche à partir du 2ème rang) et ceux sur l'envers (= à lire de gauche à droite à partir du 1er rang). Bon tricot!

Margie 15.11.2018 - 21:38:

Hi. Do I start with the pattern chart immediately or with two rows of the written instruction and THEN knit from chart? Confused where to start. Thank you.

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 06:05:

Dear Marggie, the pattern is part of row, so you knit it immediately, but AT THE SAME TIME follow written instructions for the first two rows - it says, how the part of row before and after the pattern (M.2) will be knitted. Happy knitting!

Margie Cantor 15.11.2018 - 19:43:

Hi. In making the hat, does the first row represent the first row of the pattern, or do I follow instructions for row one and row two in the written instructions and THEN follow row one from the chart? Thank you.

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 06:02:

Dear Margie, pattern M.2 is only part of the row, so you need to follow instructions for row 1 and row 2, where you establish the pattern for whole row and AT THE SAME TIME you knit after chart M.2 - see "pattern 2" in written instruction for row 1 and 2. Happy knitting!

Que veux dire M2 dans votre modele

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 10:38:

Bonjour Mme Ephege, M2 correspond au diagramme qui figure en bas de page. Bon tricot!

Mönster 66-25 Ska man sy rullkant längs båda sidorna även då det är mössa med kulle som stickas. Har letat video på hur rullkanten ska sys. Förstår inte riktigt hur man gör det.

DROPS Design 16.10.2018 kl. 13:42:

Hei Yvonne. Ja, du skal sy en rullekant både nederst og øverst på "pannebåndet", før du plukker opp masker på toppen til å strikke resten av luen med. Du bretter altså de 6 ytterste vrangmaskene innover (mot hodet når du har plagget på) også syr du dem fast slik at det blir en kant som buler ut - Du bretter dem altså dobbelt og syr den ytterste masken fast i den 6 masken fra kanten. God fornøyelse

Hello, the chart is not displayed on the pattern page, and it is not in the printable US English version or the printable original pattern. Help please?
