Modified Warm And Cosy Turban



Jeg har strikket den l√¶kreste vinterhue-turban, og jeg har lyst til at strikke 100 af dem. ūüíĖ
Jeg var dog ikke så vild med den oprindelige opskrift, så jeg har ændret en del på den.
På engelsk ligesom den oprindelige opskrift. Hvis der er interesse for det, oversætter jeg den gerne til dansk. Sig til.

I knitted the most gorgeous winter hat turban, and I want to knit 100 ones of it. ūüíĖ I however thought the pattern could be improved as the pattern for the top was really confusing. Which was a shame because it is a both beautiful and wonderfully thought out pattern. So I made improved instructions, available below

Pattern: The warm and cosy turban by Emma Andersson

Size: One Size
Yarn: Mondial Soave Merino Extrafine
Fibre content: 65% Merino Wool, 25% baby alpaca, 10% PC Microfibre
The instructions: For the sides rectangle were fine, but for the top were very confusing. To the extent that I rewrote the pattern (see modified pattern below).
Anything you particularly liked or disliked about the pattern
Positive: Ingenious design. I would have never come up with a construction like that, and I love it. And the front is perfect for a broche.
Negative: It wasn't tall enough to cover my ears.

Modifications:
I added two more rows to increase the sides rectangle enough that the hat covers my ears (see modified pattern below).
Would you recommend the pattern? Would you use this pattern again?
I highly recommend the pattern, it is such a
 GORGEOUS look. And a fairly qiuck and simple knit.
I however recommend to use my modified pattern for the top, as I think I explain things more clearly. Plus the use of stitch markers makes it a lot easier to know where you need to turn, and you can put down the knitting without getting lost.
I already knitted one more of these, and want to make 10!

Tall enough to cover my ears

Row 10: Bind off all st.


2.  The Top

Modifications: I didn’t alter anything about the pattern itself. But I changed and added to the wording to make the steps clearer. 
Plus I added how you can use stitch markers to make the pattern easier to follow.

Part A - Increasing
With right side facing you, pick up 67 st. along the side, from the beginning to the end of the ribbing. Cut yarn.

Count 28 st. from the beginning of the row, place marker, count 11 st. more, place marker.


Now add yarn at first marker (RS).

Row 1: [k1, p1] five times, k1, remove marker, w&t.

Row 2: Add marker again [p1, k1] six times, remove marker, w&t.


Continue in this manner, knitting 1 stitch more for every row. 

So on each row you remove the marker every time before you turn, and add it again when you have turned.

Do this 16 times until you have 41 st. on the needle, when it is time to turn.


Part B - Decreasing
Begin decreasing short rows:

Row 1: Add marker again (except first time), work 40 st in [k1, p1].
Then k2tog
with one st before marker and one st. after marker (remove marker as you do this), w&t.

Row 2: Add marker again, work 40 st [k1, p1].
Then p2tog
with one st before marker and one st. after marker (remove marker as you do this), w&t.

So on each row you remove the marker every time before you knit together turn, and add it again when you have turned.

Continue until all the original 67 picked up stitches are knitted.

Part C - Finishing top

Next row (RS): [k2tog] until 1 st remains, k1 (21 st)

Row2: Purl

Row3: [k2tog] until 1 st remains, k1 (11 st)

Row 4: Purl

Row 5: [k2tog] until 1 st remains, k1 (6 st)

Row 6: Purl

Row 7: Knit

Row 8: Purl

Row 9: Bind off all st.


Part 3 - Finishing hat

Place the ends (Part A and C) of the original rectangle together, and knot the two tails together.
And then sew the ends together with each other.

Pull the top end down to cover the seam you just made, and sew it to the edge.

Place a nice button or a beautiful brooch at the front.
