SHAWL:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every row with dc with 3 ch (not counted as first dc). Beg every row with sc with 1 ch (not counted as first sc).

DC-GROUP IN DC:
* Work 3 dc tog as follows: Work 1 dc in next dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 2 dc more the same way in the same dc, pull yarn through all 4 sts on hook*, work ch 3, repeat from *-* 1 more time in same dc.

FAN PATTERN:
Work ch 2, skip ch 2, work 1 dc-group around next ch-space (i.e. around ch-space in the middle of dc-group) as follows: * Work 3 dc tog, i.e. work 1 dc around next ch-space but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 2 dc more the same way around same ch-space, pull yarn through all 4 sts on hook *, work ch 3, repeat from *-* 1 more time around same ch-space, ch 2, skip 2 ch.

DIAGRAM A.1.
In A.1 repeat A.y as follows:
ROW 2 (= WS): * 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc, then work fan pattern *, repeat from *-* 10 times in total.
ROW 3 (= RS): * Work fan pattern, then 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc *, repeat from *-* 10 times in total.
Repeat these 2 rows until finished measurements.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Work 167 LOOSE ch (includes 3 ch to turn with) on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 with BabyAlpaca Silk.

Work 3 dc in 4th ch from hook, * 1 dc in each of the first/next 5 ch, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until 1 ch remains, 3 dc in last ch = 141 dc - READ CROCHET INFO. Then work as follows:
ROW 1 (= RS): Work A.2 as follows: Work 5 dc in first dc, ch 2, skip 3 dc, in next dc work dc-GROUP IN dc – see explanation above, ch 2, skip 3 dc, work 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc, then work A.1 as follows: * ch 2, skip 3 dc, work dc-group in next dc, ch 2, skip 3 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc *, repeat from *-* (= A.1) 10 times in total, then work A.3 as follows: ch 2, skip 3 dc, 1 dc-group in next dc, ch 2, skip 3 dc, 5 dc in last dc = 12 fans in total on row.
ROW 2 (= WS): Work A.3 as follows: Work 3 dc in first dc, 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, 3 dc in next dc, work FAN PATTERN - see explanation above - 1 time, work DIAGRAM A.1 – see explanation above, work A.2 as follows: 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc, work fan pattern 1 time, 3 dc in next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, 3 dc in last dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROW 3: Work A.2 as follows: Work 3 dc in first dc, ch 2, skip 3 dc, 1 dc-group in next dc, ch 2, skip 3 dc, 3 dc in next dc, work fan pattern as before, 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc, work A.y (= A.1), work A.3 as follows: Work fan pattern as before, 3 dc in next dc, ch 2, skip 3 dc, work dc-group in next dc, ch 2, skip 3 dc, 3 dc in last dc.

Work A.3 and A.2 over the outermost dc and A.y (= A.1) over the middle sts as before. When A.z has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.z until finished measurements. I.e. there are 5 dc between every fan pattern. When A.x has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.x over the outermost 3 dc until finished measurements. Continue with fan pattern over fan pattern and 1 dc in every dc over the remaining sts. I.e. there is 1 fan pattern more for every time A.x is repeated and 1 fan pattern more when A.z is repeated. Continue like this until piece measures approx. 35 cm / 13 3/4'' - adjust to finish after 2nd row in A.z.

EDGE:
Work a finishing edge at the bottom of shawl, beg from WS: Work ch 1, work A.6 as follows over A.x: * 1 sc in first/next dc, ch 2, skip 1 dc, work dc-group in dc in next dc, ch 2, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* over A.x. Over fans already started, work fan pattern as before. NOTE: Adjust so that fan pattern continues over fan pattern. Then work A.5 over A.z (= A.3), work A.6 over A.z (= A.1), A.4 over A.z (= A.2), repeat A.6 to A.x, continue with A.6 over A.x. NOTE: Adjust so that fan pattern continue over fan pattern and to finish with 1 sc in last dc. Fasten off.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.7-A.8.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every round with dc with 3 ch (do not replace first dc) and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.

DC-GROUP IN dc:
* Work 3 dc tog as follows: Work 1 dc in next dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 2 dc more the same way in the same dc, pull yarn through all 4 sts on hook *, skip 3 dc, repeat from *-* 1 more time.

FAN PATTERN:
Work ch 3, * work 1 dc-group around first/next ch-space as follows: Work 3 dc tog, i.e. work 1 dc around next ch-space but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 2 dc more the same way around same ch-space, pull yarn through all 4 sts on hook *, repeat from *-* around next ch-space, work 3 ch.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in same dc.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
The piece is worked top down. Crochet 4 ch on hook size 3 mm / C with BabyAlpaca Silk and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work 12 dc in ch-ring – read CROCHET INFO. Then work A.7 6 times in total as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 2 dc in every dc = 24 dc.
ROUND 2: Work * 1 dc in first/next dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 12 times in total = 36 dc.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 12 times in total = 48 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!

ROUND 4: Work * 3 dc in first/next dc, work ch 3, skip 1 dc, work dc-GROUP IN dc – see explanation above, ch 3, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total.
ROUND 5: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, work FAN PATTERN - see explanation above (1 time) *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total = 6 fan patterns and 30 dc.
ROUND 6: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc, work fan pattern as before *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total = 6 fan patterns and 42 dc.
ROUND 7: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc, 2 dc in next dc, work fan pattern as before *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total = 6 fan patterns and 54 dc.
ROUND 8: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 7 dc, 2 dc in next dc, work fan pattern as before *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total = 6 fan patterns and 66 dc. A.7 is now done in size S/M.

Now work differently in the different sizes as follows:
SIZE S/M:
ROUND 9: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 10 dc and fan pattern as before *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total = 6 fan patterns and 12 dc between every pattern (= 72 dc in total).

SIZE M/L:
ROUND 9: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 9 dc, 2 dc in next dc, fan pattern as before *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total = 6 fan patterns and 13 dc between every pattern (= 78 dc in total). A.7 is now done in size M/L.

SIZE L/XL:
ROUND 9: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 9 dc, 2 dc in next dc, fan pattern as before *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total = 6 fan patterns and 78 dc. A.7 is now done in size L/XL.
ROUND 10: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 12 dc and fan pattern as before *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total = 6 fan patterns and 14 dc between every pattern (= 84 dc in total).

ALL SIZES:
= 72-78-84 dc. Then work 1 dc in every dc and fan pattern as before. When piece measures 16-16-18 cm / 6 1/4"-6 1/4"-7", work 1 dc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME inc 4-2-2 dc evenly - READ INCREASE TIP and above fan pattern work A.8 as follows: Work 3 dc around first ch-space, 1 dc in next fan, 3 dc around next ch-space = 118-122-128 dc. Then work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 24-25-26 cm / 9½"-9 3/4"-10 1/4". Fasten off.
----------------------------------------------------------

WRIST WARMERS:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.9-A.12.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every round with dc with 3 ch (do not replace first dc) and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch on round.
----------------------------------------------------------

WRIST WARMERS:
Worked in the round. Work 48-54 loose ch on hook size 3 mm / C with BabyAlpaca Silk and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work ch 3, * 1 dc in each of the first ch 5, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round - READ CROCHET INFO = 40-45 dc. Then work as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the first 14-7 dc, A.9 over the next 7 dc, A.10 over the next 5 dc, A.9 over the next 7 dc, A.10 over the next 0-5 dc, A.9 over the next 0-7 dc, finish with 1 dc in each of the last 7 dc
= 2-3 fan patterns. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Repeat A.a vertically. Continue pattern like this until piece measures 12 cm / 4¾''. Then work as follows: Work A.11 over the first 7-0 dc, work A.12 over the next 7 dc, A.b over A.9/A.10, A.11 over the last 7 dc = 6-7 fans on round. Work A.11-A.12 and A.b 1 time vertically. Piece measures approx. 16 cm / 6 1/4''. Fasten off. Work an edge around the first ch-row as follows: 1 sc in first ch, * ch 1, 1 sc in next ch *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first sc. Fasten off. Work another wrist warmer the same way.
