Increases and decreases on a baby hat

The hat we work on in the video is worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on the given number of stitches including 1 edge st each side which we knit on all rows.
We have already worked 12 rows, including ridges and we have placed 7 markers.
We start the video showing from the right side (RS) how we increase at 1st marker with a yo, and then how we decrease at 2nd marker by dec 1 st each side of st with marker like this: start 1 st before st with marker, slip 1 st on cable needle behind piece, slip 1 st (= st with marker), K tog next st and st on cable needle, pass slipped stitch over. Repeat increase with yo at 3rd, 5th and 7th marker and repeat the dec at 4th and 6th marker. K sts on RS between markers, and end row with K 1 edge st. On WS you K 1 edge st each side and P all other sts, all yo’s are P twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.

To see a pattern with this technique, see: BABY DROPS 21-34 or one of the picture to the left.

Wie unvorteilhaft, dass hier so dünne Wolle genommen wurde zum Zeigen. Ich kann es nicht erkennen.

The video shows one increase or decrease at each marker only while the directions state 'on each SIDE of the marker'. That would suggest TWO increases/decreases at each marker (one on EACH side of the marker). Have I missed something?

Dear Mrs Clifford-Rosengren, the video shows how to increase and decrease in this pattern, ie you inc 1 st after 1st marker and before 7th marker, and then dec 1 st on each side of 2nd, 4th and 6th marker = 2 sts in total at these markers (as under DECREASE TIP) and inc 1 st on each side of 3rd and 5th marker (= 2 sts in total at these markers). Happy knitting!

Tusind tak for tippet, Anne Marie. Og tak til Garnstudio for alle de gode hjælpe videoer.

Det er meget nemmere at strikke Indtagningerne sådan: masken før OG midtermasken tages løs af (som vrangmaske), strik næste ret, træk begge de løse masker over. Voila, resultatet er helt det samme uden ekstrapind mm!

Es fehlt der Ton, Schade :-(

Hallo Yvonne, diese Video-Anleitungen sind "stumm" damit jede(r) sie ohne Sprachbarriere verstehen kann. Einfach nur durch sehen bzw. schauen. Man kann sie anhalten oder immer wieder anschauen. Das ist der "Trick" :-)

Leider fehlt die Lautstärke.
