Tucked is a unique Hat that will take you on a journey through tucks and short rows.

Bringing together a host of different techniques Tucked is a mildly challenging and fun knit, resulting in an unusual and striking Hat.

Due to its structure, changes in sizes are achieved through gauge, and two sizes are provided in the pattern. Please note that the different sizes require different needle sizes.

Tucked ist eine ganz besondere Mütze, mit der es auf eine abwechslungsreiche Strickreise durch Biesen und verkürzte Reihen geht.

Durch eine Vielzahl verschiedener Techniken als annähernd fortgeschritten, aber unterhaltsam zu stricken eingestuft, entsteht mit dieser Anleitung eine ungewöhliche und bezaubernde Mütze.

Konstruktionsbedingt können Größenveränderungen nur durch die Strickfestigkeit erzielt werden; nach der Anleitung können mit unterschiedlichen Nadelstärken zwei verschiedene Größen gestrickt werden.
