Scallop Cap

"Scales" - very effective mating. The hat connected in such a pattern is very warm. It is especially good for wearing in autumn or early spring. For this headgear you do not need to knit the second layer, because it already knits in 2 layers at the same time. The scale pattern is also called crocodile viscous. The cap is simply knitted.
wool thread
To knit caps 54–56 of head size, you need 120 g of CASYMERE GOLD wool yarn, the length of which is 320 g, and hook number 3.
We type chain
The report report consists of 6 loops. Recruit a chain of 96 air loops. This will be our head size.
knitting 1 crochet into each loop of the chain. At the end we finish the connecting loop.
Turning knitting
Turning knitting. Under the height of the third column we knit 5 s / cn, 1 c. P.(it is possible not to knit it) and, under the height of the fourth column, we also knit 5 s / d. Then we combine the scale with the previous row in the sixth column with a loop without single crochet. So until the end of the series. We finish a row with a connecting loop. It turned out 16 scales.
We connect half-looped
Once again we turn knitting, and knit a column with a crochet over each loop of the previous row. We connect half looped.
 scales went in a staggered order
Turn knitting. To make our scales go in a staggered manner, we begin a row with two columns without a nakida in the loops of the previous row and continue knitting. Only now we tie not 2 and 3 columns, but 5 and 6. That is, our drawing is simply shifted by 3 loops and now the tip of the scales of each subsequent row will be between the two peaks of the previous ones.
Report repeat
Report repeat 10 times. Then we proceed to lowering the loops to form the top of the head. For this, when knitting stitches on the seamy side, we will make two double crochet loops on the seam side with a common top,that is, to make a decrease in the loops over the two bound columns. Why just above them? Yes, so as not to be mistaken and evenly reduce the rows.
reduce loops in the row
When we start to reduce the loops in the row, the report will change slightly. It will not be necessary to attach a binding of columns to the previous row. Leave a gap so that the knitting is freer, and the crown is beautifully shaped. Knit the same pattern as before. At the same time, the number of scales will decrease, and due to the free strapping evenly distributed.
 Continue subtraction
After 2 rows of subtractions, you will have 9 scales. Continue to decrease. If you have extra loops, distribute them evenly, when you make a row of tying columns in height, skip not 2, but, say, 3 loops.
subtraction can be stopped
If there are already 5 or 6 scales left, subtraction can be stopped.
finish crown
To finish the crown,we knit double crochets over the columns of the previous row from the inside and, stretching the thread through them, tighten.
Cap connected by scales
You have a beautiful crown. There you can insert a tied button of a different color, and you will receive a rose.
Cap connected by scales
Cap knitted for an adult woman. But I liked her daughter so much that I had to give. The child of joy knew no bounds. And warm, and beautiful, and no one has such! Carries with pleasure!
