The explanations that give you concern the technique I designed to achieve the hat, much simpler than other explanations that you will find on the web, does not cover measures of the hat, as you know, depend on the size of your head .. To establish extent of the irons, the number of meshes to be initially set and centimeters in height we need to refer to other tutorials, or to have a clear idea about the extent to accomplish. OK, that said, let’s begin! The first thing to do is to get the circular needles of size appropriate to wool you should use. Mounted then 3 sts and work a cord with the method shown in the video.
Virtually they are mounted 3m, is working on the right and return to work from the first m processed, thus not turn the iron but by sliding the stitches back to the beginning of the iron, bringing the thread behind the work. In the video they use two irons blunt, but you can safely use circular needle, sliding the stitches from one end.
A tip: if you use a particularly fine wool on the string you can do it with 5 maglie.Comunque the number of loops must be odd.
Calculated a string of measurement of the circumference of the hat + 6cm (if you have a girth of 55cm for example, you’ll have to create a 55 + 6 = 61 cm ICORD).
Close the cord and, more circular needle, take 71 mesh (or the ones you need) from the edge. This is the only point where you have to cut the thread and resume work.
Work the first lap straight inserting three markers: one at the beginning of round, the second after 13 mesh (calculated for the number of the cap without border) the third after 28 mesh.
In the next round you work the stitches to the right until the third scorecard after you continue in garter st following the following scheme to shorten links between the two markers, recalling that in the diagram below all the laps will be right.

If hypothetically we must work 10 mesh and then we have to turn the job, do this: we work 10 mesh, we pass the eleventh on the right needle (Figure 1) bring forward the thread of the work, go over the shirt on the left needle and report back in the working thread (figure 2) we turn the job and continue to work. When in the following irons you find yourself working the point where you have done the wrap & turn have to do this, insert the right needle taking the jersey to work together in that turn (Figure 3) as a single mesh.
Do not work all the iron, but only the meshes between the two scoreboards, thus obtaining the curve of the caps.
At the end of the last iron shortened continue on all meshes with other color wool, running a rice point (two straight, two showers for two irons; then two showers and two straight …). After 3 cm resume with the initial color and continue to 17cm (or whatever you need) before starting the decreases for the cap.
Use 5 marker to identify the decrease of points, which will achieve with simple un’accavallata followed by two machined mesh together.
When the shell is the size you want, take the last lap two links at a time resulting in 12 maglie.Tagliate very long wire and with a knitting needle, take the stitches from the iron and close the cover.
the hat is finished without any problems.
