DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 138 stitches) and divide by number of decreases to be made (e.g. 26) = 5.3. 
In this example decrease by knitting approx. each 4th and 5th stitch together.

See diagram A.1.The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.




The piece is worked in the round with short circular needle, bottom up. Change to double pointed needles when necessary.

Cast on 138-144-150 stitches with short circular needle size 2.5 mm and dark grey. Work rib in the round (= knit 1/ purl 1) for 4 cm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 26-28-30 stitches evenly spaced – read DECREASE TIP = 112-116-120 stitches.
Change to short circular needle size 3 mm and work A.1 in the round (= 28-29-30 repeats of 4 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! 
On the round marked with an arrow in A.1, decrease 1-2-0 stitches evenly spaced = 111-114-120 stitches. Continue the pattern (there is now room for 37-38-40 repeats of 3 stitches). When A.1 has been completed the piece measures approx. 11 cm from the cast-on edge.
Continue with stocking stitch and grey. When the piece measures 13-15-17 cm from the cast-on edge knit 1 round where you decrease 1-4-0 stitches evenly spaced = 110-110-120 stitches. Now insert 10 markers in the piece with 11-11-12 stitches between each one. On the next round decrease 1 stitch after each marker by knitting 2 together (= 10 stitches decreased). Change to double pointed needles when necessary. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 9 times in all sizes = 20-20-30 stitches left. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 10-10-15 stitches left. Work 1 more round where you knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 5-5-8 stitches left.
Cut the strand, pull it through all the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The hat measures approx. 19-21-23 cm from the top down.
