HAT - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
First work piece back and forth on circular needle in 2 parts from mid back, then sew the 2 parts together mid back and plait parts together mid front, then pick up stitches around the edge and then work in the round and decrease for hat. Switch to double pointed needles when needed.

HAT:
Work first part as follows:
Cast on 19 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with Air. Work pattern back and forth as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.1 (= 17 stitches), 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this until piece measures 21-22 cm, adjust so that next row is worked from right side. Turn and work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, work the first 8 stitches in A.2 from right side before slipping these 9 stitches on a stitch holder. Work the remaining 9 stitches in A.2 (= 1 stitch decreased), 1 edge stitch in garter stitch = 9 stitches. Work last row in A.2 over the 9 stitches on needle. Continue back and forth with pattern as before over the 9 stitches on needle until piece measures 11 cm from division (approx. 33-34 cm from cast-on edge) - adjust so that next row is worked from right side. Slip stitches on a stitch holder. This part is marked with a black star in illustration A.4.
Slip stitches from the other stitch holder back on needle = 9 stitches. Begin from wrong side and work last row in A.2, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue pattern back and forth until piece measures 11 cm (approx. 33-34 cm from cast-on edge) - adjust so that next row is worked from right side. Slip stitches on a stitch holder. This part is marked with a white star in illustration A.4.
Work second part as follows:
Cast on 19 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with Air. Work pattern back and forth as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.1 (= 17 stitches), 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this until piece measures 33-34 cm, adjust so that next row is worked from right side. Cut the yarn.

ASSEMBLY AND PLAITING:
Sew together the 2 cast-on edges mid back. Slip stitches from the different parts worked on circular needle as follows: Slip the first 9 stitches from first part (= white star) on needle, then slip the next 9 stitches from first part (= black star) on needle, place the 19 stitches on the second part over the first 9 stitches (white star) and under the next 9 stitches (= black star) and slip stitches on to needle. Parts cross mid front as shown in A.4.

TOP OF HAT:
Now work in the round from right side on part with white star as follows: Knit the first 8 stitches, knit the next 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased in transition between part with white and black star), knit the next 7 stitches, knit the next 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased in transition between part with black star and next part), knit the next 3 stitches together (= 2 stitches decreased), knit the next 15 stitches. There are now 33 stitches on needle and pattern fits every other knit stitch and every other stitch in garter stitch. Now pick up 24-26 stitches inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch along the first part until seam mid back, then pick up 25-27 stitches the same way from seam mid back and until beginning of round = 82-86 stitches.
Continue in the round with pattern A.3, and adjust so that pattern fits the entire round and over stitches on parts plaited mid front. When piece measures 5-6 cm from where stitches were picked up, insert 6 marker threads in piece as follows: Insert first marker thread after 13-15 stitches (i.e. before a knit stitch), then insert the next 4 marker threads after 14 stitches, 13-15 stitches now remain on round after last marker thread and there are 6 marker threads in piece, before 1 knit stitch. On next round, decrease 1 stitch at every marker thread – read DECREASE TIP! Decrease like this every other round 10 times in total = 22-26 stitches. Knit stitches together 2 by 2 = 11-13 stitches. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten tog and fasten. Hat measures approx. 24-25 cm.

Bonjour Je ne comprends pas comment reprendre les mailles en attente en les croisant Merci de bien vouloir m'expliquer Corlouer

DROPS Design 14.02.2019 kl. 10:03:

Bonjour Mme Corlouer, vous placez les mailles des 2 parties ainsi sur votre aiguille: les 9 premières m de la 1ère partie (celles que vous avez tricoté en 2ème sur 11 cm), puis placez les 9 dernières mailles de la 1ère partie (celles de gauche, vu sur l'endroit) à suivre sur la même aiguille. Entre les 2 parties, vous avez une fente de 11 cm, passez les 19 m de la 2ème partie par-dessus les 9 premières m, dans la fente entre les 2 fois 9 m de la 1ère partie et faites les ressortir pour les glisser sur l'aiguille, à gauche des 18 m de la 1ère partie. Bon tricot!

Can I use Drops Nepal yarn for this hat?

DROPS Design 04.01.2019 kl. 22:00:

Dear Jenny, DROPS Nepal belongs to the same yarn group of DROPS Nepal, so you can use it as yarn alternative. Just remember to check your gauge before starting! Happy crafting!

Sådan en hue/hat havde min mormor da jeg var lille (ca. 45 år siden) rigtig retro, men den sidder godt på hoved, så hvorfor ikke gen op tage den.
