We recommend knitting a hat from soft and beautiful yarn KATIA “Azteca”. It has a sectional color in smoothly fading or contrasting colors. It’s all about the taste of the knitter and the future owner of the hat. How will we knit? We use the proven instructions of the master Olga Sukhovalova.

Work description:

I knitted a hat from the bottom up, “ears” in the opposite direction. First I knitted a 9 cm lapel (I have 25 rows). With a smooth thread with a needle, I marked the last row of the lapel, passing the thread straight through all the loops of the row. I continued to knit the pipe with an elastic band until the total length (lapel + crown) reached 20 / 21 cm. Then I began to form the top of the hat.


1st row: all facial loops knitted facial, all purl – two together purl. 2 – 6 rows: according to the figure (* 2 persons., 1 out. *). 7th row: all facial – two together with the front loop, all purl – purl. 8 – 10 rows: according to the drawing (* 1 person., 1 out. *). 11th row: * 3 together with the middle loop at the back (person., out., persons.), 1 out. , 1 person., 1 out. *. 12th row: according to the drawing (* 1 person., 1 out. *). 13th row: * 3 together with the middle loop at the back (person., out., persons. ), 1 out., 1 person., 1 out. *. 14th row: according to the drawing (* 1 person., 1 out. *). 15th row: two together with a slope to the left (i.e. persons . top). 16th row: all facial. The remaining loops (I have 7 p.) pulled off. The resulting hat should be on the forehead to the eyebrows, on the ear – to the middle of the tragus. Then she lifted the loops from the row that is marked with a thread from calculation that about 40% of all loops will be needed for the face, the rest will go to the ears and back of the head. In my case, for the “ears” I raised 50 p. So that the extreme loops on the front side of the cap were front and coincided with the front “paths” of the lapel.


Key points: Decreases at the back of the head: 1 p each in the purl paths closest to the middle of the row, in the 3rd and 5th rows (including typesetting). In total, 2 decreases on each side from the middle of the row. Decrease along the edges: 1 st in the purl path closest to the edge of the row, in the 5th, 9th, 11th rows (including typesetting). In total, 3 decreases along the edges. Shortened rows, starting from the 5th row (with typesetting), with a step from the middle of the back of the head: – 6 p., – 6 p., – 4 p., in each front row. Only 6 short rows for each “ear”. First I knitted the left ear, then the right. Ears. Finishing: Then 1 smoothing row, working out the elastic from 2×2 to 1×1 (except for the extreme 3 loops on the right and left), two rows of hollow gum. She closed all the loops except the extreme 3 on the right and left with a loop-in-loop needle. From the extreme 3 loops on both sides of the “ears” she tied the ties with a hollow cord 30 cm long. I pulled out the thread, hid all the dangling ends.

Knit with pleasure!
