Hat:
Knitting tension: Remember needle size is only a guide!
18 stitches x 36 rows with needle size 4 mm and garter stitch = 10 x 10 cm.

Ridge/Garter stitch (back and forth on needle):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

Stripes * 1 ridge shocking pink, 1 ridge orange, 1 ridge rust *, repeat from *-*.
Hat: The hat is worked back and forth on needle and sewn mid back to finish.
Cast on 120 stitches with needle size 4 mm and orange. Knit 1 row from the wrong side. Continue with garter stitch and Stripes - see description above. Remember the knitting tension - if the work is too loose, the hat will be too big! When piece measures 5 cm work the next row as follows from right side (with the colour you have reached): * K2, K2 together *, repeat from *-* to end of row = 90 stitches. Continue the stripes. When piece measures 17 cm insert 10 marker threads in the piece with 9 stitches between each - first marker thread inserted after 8 stitches, and there should be 1 stitch after the last marker thread. Continue the stripes, at the same time as you decrease from the right side by knitting 2 together on right side of all marker threads every 2nd ridge 4 times and then every ridge 4 times = 10 stitches left on needle. Cut strand and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.
Sew the hat together mid back in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch. The hat measures approx. 23 cm in height.




Butterfly brooch:

Butterfly: The butterfly is worked in 2 parts which are sewn together to finish - i.e. it has 2 pairs of wings.

Bottom pair of wings: Work 5 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm and heather and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch.
Row 1: 3 chain stitches, 2 treble crochets around chain-space, * 2 chain stitches, 3 treble crochets around chain-space *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times (= 5 treble crochet-groups), turn piece.
Row 2: 4 chain stitches, 3 treble crochets around chain-space, 5 chain stitches, 3 treble crochets around same chain-space,* 3 treble crochets around next chain-space, 4 chain stitches, 3 treble crochets around same chain-space *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, then 3 treble crochets around next chain-space, 5 chain stitches and 3 treble crochets in same chain-space. Finish with 1 chain stitch and 1 treble crochet in the 3rd chain stitch from previous round, turn piece.
Row 3: Change to dark orange, skip the first treble crochet-group, work 12 treble crochets around first chain-space (= space with 5 chain stitches), 1 double crochet between the treble crochet-groups, 10 half- treble crochets around next chain-space, 1 double crochet between the treble crochet-groups, 10 half- treble crochets around next chain-space, 1 double crochet between the treble crochet-groups, 12 treble crochets around next chain-space, skip the last treble crochet-group and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch from the previous row, cut strand.

Top pair of wings: Work 10 chain stitches with crochet hook size 3.5 mm and dark orange and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch.
Row 1: * 1 double crochet, 1 treble crochet, 1 double- treble crochet, 1 treble crochet and 1 double crochet around chain-space, then work 1 half- treble crochet, 2 treble crochets, 1 double- treble crochet, 2 triple-double- treble crochets, 2 double- treble crochets, 2 treble crochets and 1 double crochet around same chain-space *, 5 chain stitches, 1 slip stitch in first double crochet on the row, turn piece (half the pair of wings is now finished).
