Knit 2 times (24 knit, 1 over, 4 knit, 1 over, 4 knit, 1 over, 4 knit, 1 over, 4 knit) = 88 stitches 

Then knit as follows: 20 knit stitches, 24 stitches on the scheme No. 1, 20 knit stitches, 24 stitches on the scheme No. 1 ( = 88 stitches). Repeat 40 rows. Beginning with row 41 make subtractions as indicated in the scheme. Knit knit-stitched parts of the hat without subtractions.
