How to decrease and increase to the hat in DROPS Baby 21-34

Tags: hats, helm,

In this DROPS video we show how to increase and decrease by the stitch markers. We use a smaller number of stitches / rows than what is written in the pattern and we have already worked the first rows and put 7 stitch markers in the hat. The first and last stitch is knitted, both from RS and from WS.

We start by showing how to increase stitches at 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th mark and how to decrease 1 stitch on each side of stitch with marker at 2nd, 4th and 6th mark from RS. Then we show how to work the YO twisted from WS to avoid holes. Then we show 1 row from RS again, with inc and dec. When all inc have been worked, work rows with only dec (at markers 2, 4 and 6) until there are 15 stitches left.

Work next row from RS as follows: K 1, K 2 tog, K 9, K 2 tog, K 1 = 13 sts. Repeat dec in each side on every row (from WS P the 2 sts before and after edge st tog) until 5 sts remain. On the last row from WS work 1 edge st, P 3 sts tog and work 1 edge st. Pull thread through the remaining stitch.
Sew the hat together mid back inside 1 edge stitch.

TIES:
Cast on 4 stiches. Work as follows: * K 1, place yarn in front of piece (towards you), slip 1 st as if to P, place yarn behind piece (from you) *, repeat from *-* on more time and on all rows. Work to desired length and cast off. Sew the ribbon at the bottom of one tip on ear flap.

This hat is worked in DROPS Alpaca, but in the video we work with a thicker yarn; DROPS Snow.
