Possessive pronouns must precede adjectives, just like determiners:

Example 1

Ús lytse hammer
our small hammer
Our small hammer

The order is as follows: 1: possessor - 2: adjective - 3: noun. Any permutation of the three elements in the phrase above is ungrammatical. This is illustrated below for the permutation 213 in which the adjective precedes the numeral:

Example 2

*Lytse ús hammer
small our hammer
Our small hammer
