Materials:200-250-250-250-300 g colour no. 18, white
circular needles size 4.5 mm or the size needed to obtain the correct knitting tension.
Knitting tension: 20 sts x 26 row on needles size 4.5 mm in stocking sts with Muskat = 10 x 10 cm.
Pattern: See diagrams M.1 and M.2. The diagrams are shown from the RS.
Garter sts round on needle: 1st round: K, 2nd round: P Garter sts back and forth: Knit on all rows.
Decreasing tips (apply for the arm hole): All decreases are done from the RS. Dec as follows for the arm holes inside 4 garter sts: Before 4 garter sts: K2 tog. After 4 garter sts: slip a st as if to knit, K1, psso.
Back and front piece: Knit around. Bend the circular needle double (or use 2 needles) and cast on 144-160-160-176-176 sts using 2 needles with Muskat (this will make the casting on edge more elastic). Pull out one needle. Insert a marking thread (MT) at the beg. of round and 1 MT after 72-80-80-88-88 sts (= the sides). Knit 4 rounds of garter sts – see explanation above. Continue according to M.1 – see explanation above. When M.1 is completed 1 vertical repeat continue in stocking sts over all sts. At the same time dec. 1 st each side on the MT on every 10-6-15-7-15 cm a total of 2-4-2-4-2 times (= 4 dec. on round) = 136-144-152-160-168 sts. When the piece measures 27-29-31-33-35 cm knit 2 round of garter sts over 14 sts each side (7 sts each side of the MT). On the next round cast off the mid 6 sts for the arm holes each side. Now continue each part separately.
Back piece: =62-66-70-74-78 sts. Continue with 4 garter sts towards the armholes. Then dec. 1 sts for the armhole on every other row – read decreasing tips 2-3-4-5-6 times = 58-60-62-64-66 sts. When the piece measures 42-45-48-51-54 cm cast off the mid 26-28-30-32-32 sts for the neck. Continue to cast off 1 st each side of the neck = 15-15-15-15-16 sts left for each shoulder. Cast off when the piece measures 44-47-50-53-56 cm.
Front piece: = 62-66-70-74-78 sts. Continue with 4 garter sts towards the arm hole: Cast off for armholes as done for the back piece. At the same time when the piece measures 30-32-34-36-38 cm knit 2 rows of garter sts over thee mid 6 sts (knit other sts as before). On the next row put half of the sts on a thread or a stitch holder and finish each side separately. Side-1: Continue the dec. for the arm holes. Knit 4 garter sts at the side and 3 garter sts towards the slit. Inside the 3 garter sts for the slit knit according to M.2 - see diagram. When the piece measures 39-42-44-47-49 cm put 8-9-10-11-11 sts at the mid front on a thread or a stitch holder for the neck. Then cast off for the neck on every other row as follows: 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 2 times = 15-15-15-15-16 sts left for each shoulder. Cast off when piece measures 44-47-50-53-56 cm. Side -2: Put sts from the thread or stitch holder back on needle. Knit as side-1 but reverse.
Assembly: Sew the shoulder seams.
Neck edge: Pick up approx. 66-82 sts (incl. the sts from the thread or stitch holder) around the neck on circular needles size 4.5 mm. Knit 4 rows of garter sts back and forth from the mid front. Cast off loosely.
knitted hat with pattern
Size: 5/9 years - 10/14 years Materials:100-100 g colour no 71, purple mix
needles size 3 mm – or the needle size needed to obtain correct knitting tension. crochet hook size 3 mm (for crochet edge). Steel wire – approx 1 m fine steel wire
Knitting tension: 21 sts x 46 rows on needles size 3 mm with Drops Muskat in garter sts = 10 x 10 cm
Pattern: See diagram M.1. Diagrams are seen from RS. 1 row = RS
Garter sts back and forth: Knit all rows.
HAT: Knit back and forth on needle. Cast on 133-145 sts loosely (incl 1 edge st each side) on needle size 3 mm with Drops Muskat, knit garter sts. When piece measures 5 cm dec 35 sts evenly by K2 tog approx every 3rd -4th sts = 98-110 sts. Continue in garter sts 1 cm, then knit M.1 with 1 edge st each side. After M.1 is knitted 1 times in height continuing in garter sts until piece is completed. When piece measures 14-16 cm insert 8-9 marking thread (MT) in piece from RS as follows: Knit 2 sts, insert 1 MT, * knit 12 sts insert 1 MT *, repeat from *-* 7-8 times in total. After last MT 12 sts are left, garter sts these sts. Dec 1 sts from RS on left side of all MT on every other row 11 times in total = 10-11 sts left on row. Pull 1 thread through remaining sts and sew on well. Sew hat tog mid back in outermost part of outer most sts to make slim and neat seam. Hat measures approx 19-21 cm in height. Tie 1 thin steel wire along the casting on edge of hat. Crochet 1 round with dc on crochet hook size 3 mm around steel wire + casting on edge, this is done to make hat firm at bottom edge.
