Repeat rows 2-5.

KNITTING TIP 1:
To make an English rib in stripes work back and forth on a circular needle as follows: Work 1st and 2nd row as explained above. Move all sts on circular needle to the other end of circular needle so that next row can be worked with a new color from same side as 2nd row. Then turn piece and work the next 2 rows from the other side the same way as 2nd and 3rd row. That means that 1 row is worked with every color from same side before turning the piece.

KNITTING TIP 2:
If you are in doubt, see what color the previous row was worked with on the color of edge st.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Cast on 72-81 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with gray and work back and forth on needle. K 1 row.
Work next row as follows from RS: 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above -, * P 1, P 2 tog *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, finish with P 1 and 1 edge st in GARTER ST = 49-55 sts. Then work ENGLISH RIB IN TWO COLORS - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 23-24 cm / 9”-9½” – make sure to finish after 5th row and work next row in gray as follows: 1 st in garter st, * K tog YO and slipped st, P 1 *, repeat from *-* until 3 sts remain, K tog YO and slipped st and 1 st in garter st.
Turn and continue with rib K 1/P 1 with 1 edge st in garter st in each side with gray until rib measures approx. 3 cm / 1''. K 1 row from RS while AT THE SAME TIME working all sts tog 2 by 2. Piece measures approx. 27-28 cm / 10½”-11”.
Tighten tog the last sts at the top and sew hat tog mid back, garter st against garter st.
----------------------------------------------------------


NECK WARMER:
The piece is worked top down. Cast on 93-99 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with gray and work back and forth on circular needle. K 1 row. Work next row as follows from RS: 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above -, * P 1, P 2 tog *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, finish with P 1 and 1 edge st in GARTER ST = 63-67 sts. Then work ENGLISH RIB IN TWO COLORS - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures approx. 12-14 cm / 4¾”-5½” – make sure to finish after 2nd row. Cut the yarn, do not turn piece, move sts to the other end of circular needle and work next row from RS as follows with rose garden: 1 edge st in garter st, * K 1, K YO twisted and P slipped st *, repeat from * - * until 2 sts remain, K 1 and finish with 1 edge st in garter st. Then work K over K and P over P until piece measures approx. 14-16 cm / 5½”-6¼”.
When piece is done, RS becomes WS, so the pink sts (V's) that have been worked in English rib will be on the RS of piece. Loosely bind off.
Cut the yarn and sew neck warmer tog with small stitches, sew in outer loop of edge sts and fasten the yarn.
