BONNET: Worked back and forth on needle in garter st – SEE ABOVE.
Cast on 97-105-109 (113-121) sts on needle size 4 mm with light beige. K 1 row from WS and now insert 7 markers in piece from RS as follows:
M-1 in first st on row
M-2 in st 18-20-21 (22-24)
M-3 in st 35-39-41 (43-47)
M-4 in st 49-53-55 (57-61)
M-5 in st 63-67-69 (71-75)
M-6 in st 80-86-89 (92-98)
M-7 in last st on row
Continue in garter st, AT THE SAME TIME on row 1 begin inc and dec as follows – SEE INCREASING AND DECREASING TIP:
INC 1 st after M-1 on every other row
DEC 1 st on each side of M-2 on every other row
INC 1 st before M-3 on every other row
INC 1 st after M-3 on every 4th row
DEC 1 st on each side of M-4 on every 4th row 5-7-8 (10-11) times and then on every other row to finished measurements (i.e. when dec on every other row no of sts will dec)
INC 1 st before M-5 on every 4th row
INC 1 st after M-5 on every other row
DEC 1 st on each side of M-6 on every other row
INC 1 st before M-7 on every other row.
Continue like this. When piece measures 13-15-16 (18-19) cm (measured from lowest point by M-2 or M-6) work next row as follows from RS:
* K1, K2 tog *, repeat from *-*, AT THE SAME TIME as casting off.
Back of hat = cast off row, i.e. 2 whole points and 2 half points.
The middle of the 3 whole points on the opposite side of piece = cast on row, sits at middle of forehead.
Sew hat tog, edge to edge along cast off row as follows: Sew first half point to one side of the first whole point. Sew the other side of first whole point to one side of second whole point. Then the other side of second whole point to the last half point. Now sew hat tog mid back – make sure to sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.
Beg at bottom of point on one side. Crochet with crochet hook size 4 mm and off-white as follows: 1 dc in point, a string of ch measuring 20-22-24 (26-28) cm, turn piece and work 1 sl st in each ch on return row, finish with 1 sl st in dc in point (= tie string). Continue round the bonnet as follows: * 3 ch, 1 tr in the first of these 3 ch, skip approx 1 cm, 1 dc in next st *, repeat from *-* to point at the other side. Work a tie string as described above and continue round the bonnet as follows: * 3 ch 1 tr in the first of these 3 ch, skip approx 1 cm, 1 dc in next st *, repeat from *-* to the first point and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round.
Worked in garter st back and forth on needle.
Cast on 18-20-22 (24-26) sts on needle size 4 mm with light beige and work garter st back and forth on needle until piece measures approx 8-9-10 (11-12) cm. Now divide the piece in the middle and slip half the sts on a stitch holder = 9-10-11 (12-13) sts left on needle. Continue on these sts for 4-5-5 (6-6) cm (piece measures 12-14-15 (17-18) cm in total). Slip sts on a stitch holder and slip sts from the first stitch holder back on needle. Work garter st back and forth on needle for 4-5-5 (6-6) cm. Now slip all sts back on needle and continue in garter st until piece measures approx 44-47-51 (55-60) cm. Cast off.
Crochet a border round scarf with crochet hook size 4 mm and off-white as follows: * 1 dc, 3 ch, 1 tr in the first of these 3 ch, skip approx 1 cm *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round.
