JACKET:

Knitting tension: 24 stitches x 32 rows with needle size 3 mm and stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm. Remember needle size is only a guide!

Pattern: See diagram (1 diagram = 1 repeat). The pattern in the diagram is seen from the right side. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.
M.4: * 3 rounds of red, 3 rounds of pink, 3 rounds of red, 3 rounds of pink, 3 rounds of red, 3 rounds of pink, 3 rounds of red, 3 rounds of yellow *, repeat from * - * upwards.
Rib: * K1, P1 *. Repeat from *-*.

Edge: Work 2 cm stocking stitch, purl 1 row (= folding edge), 2 cm stocking stitch.
------------------------------------------------------

Body: The jacket is worked in the round with circular needle after the rib and is cut for armholes and mid front afterwards. Cast on 134-146-158 (182-194-206) stitches (incl. 2 edge stitches) with circular needle size 2.5 mm and yellow and work rib back and forth for 2 cm. Change to circular needle size 3 mm and work M.1 in the round at the same time as you increase 3 stitches mid front - these stitches + edge stitches = 5 stitches to cut in afterwards and are not worked into pattern. Remember the knitting tension. After M.1 finish working with M.2. When piece measures 18-19-22 (25-25-27) cm, work the next round as follows: 5 cutting stitches, 33-36-39 (45-48-51) stitches front piece, cast on 5 stitches (= cutting stitches which are not worked into pattern), 66-72-78 (90-96-102) stitches back piece, cast on 5 m (=cutting stitches which are not worked into pattern), 33-36-39 (45-48-51) stitches front piece. When piece measures 23-25-29 (33-36-39) cm, cast off the middle 6-8-10 (14-18-20) stitches + 5 cutting stitches in front for neck and finish working back and forth on needle. Continue to decrease towards neck every 2nd row: 3 stitches x 2, 2 stitches x 1, 1 stitch x 1. At the same time, when piece measures 26-28-32 (36-39-42) cm, cast off the middle 20-22-24 (28-32-34) stitches at back for neck. Then decrease 2 stitches in each side on the next row towards neck at back. Cast off when piece measures 28-30-34 (38-41-44) cm (adjust for pattern if necessary).

Sleeve: Cast on 38-40-40 (42-42-44) stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and yellow and work rib for 2 cm at the same time as you increase 2-4-6 (6-6-8) stitches evenly on last round = 40-44-46 (48-48-52) stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work M.3 and then to finished length with M.4 (see description above) at the same time as you increase mid under sleeve: 2 stitches x 4-4-6 (7-14-15) in Size 1/3 months: Every 5th round, Size 6/9 months: Alternately every 8th and 9th round, Size 12/18 months: Alternately every 6th and 7th round, Size 2 years: Every 6th round and Sizes 3/4 + 5/6 years: Every 4th round = 48-52-58 (62-76-82) stitches. When piece measures 10-14-16 (17-21-25) cm, place the 4 stitches mid under sleeve on a thread for sleeve cap. Continue working back and forth on needle at the same time as you place stitches on the thread in each side every 2nd row: 4-4-4 (5-6-6) stitches x 4. The piece now measures approx. 13-17-19 (20-24-28) cm. Place all stitches from the thread back on the double pointed needles and work in the round over all stitches with red as follows: 2 cm stocking stitch with wrong side out as a lining over the cut edge on body, cast off.

Assembly: Sew a marker thread down the middle of the cutting stitches in each side and mid front. Sew two machine seams on each side of the marker thread, seam 1 = 1/2 stitch from marker thread, seam 2 = 1/2 stitch from seam 1. Cut for armholes and mid front. Sew shoulder seams. Knit up approx. 60-65-75 (85-90-100) stitches with yellow and needle size 2.5 mm along left front piece and work Edge back and forth on needle. Repeat along right front piece, but after 0.5 cm work 5-5-5 (6-6-6) buttonholes evenly on row - 1 buttonhole = cast off 2 stitches and cast on 2 new stitches over the cast off stitches on the next row; top buttonhole worked 2 stitches from edge, bottom buttonhole 1 cm from edge (remember buttonhole on folded side too. Knit up approx. 90-100 stitches around neck with needle size 2.5 mm and yellow and work 1 row stocking stitch and then M.5, change to red and work 1 row stocking stitch, purl 1 row (= folding edge), 5 rows red, cast off. Sew sleeves to body from the right side as follows: Sew alternately 1 stitch in the last knitted round on sleeve before the lining and 1 stitch on body after the machine seam. Turn the jumper inside out and sew lining from the sleeve over the cut edge on the body by hand. Sew on buttons.




Crochet HAT in Cotton Chenille.

Circumference: 35-37-38 (42-45-47) cm.
Materials: Cotton Chenille
50-50-50 (50-100-100) g colour no 09, red
DROPS Crochet hook size 4 mm.
Crochet tension: approx. 13 double crochets in width and 12 rows in height with hook size 4 mm = 10 x 10 cm. Remember hook size is only a guide! 

Hat: The hat is crocheted in red with hook size 4 mm. Work 4 chain stitches and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Begin all rounds with 1 chain stitch which replaces the first double crochet and finish all rounds with 1 slip stitch. Work 6 double crochets in the ring. Then work 2 double crochets in each double crochet = 12 double crochets. On the next round work as follows: * 2 double crochets in the first double crochet, 1 double crochet in the next double crochet *, repeat from *-* to end of round = 6 increases = 18 double crochets. Then work the next round as follows: * 2 double crochets in the first double crochet, 2 double crochets *, repeat from *-* to end of round. Now increase in this way every round, but add 1 more double crochet between each time you work 2 double crochets in 1 double crochet, i.e. next round there will be 3 double crochets between and the following round there will be 4 double crochets between etc. 
Continue the increases until piece measures 4-4-5 (5-6-6) cm from the middle. Then increase every 2nd round until piece measures 7.5-8.5-9 (10.5-10.5-11) cm from the middle. 
On the next round decrease /increase to 46-48-50 (54-58-62) double crochets evenly on round.
Then continue to work without increasing until piece measures 16-17-18 (18-19-19) cm from the middle. Then work the brim as follows: 
Round 1: * 2 double crochets, 2 double crochets in next double crochet *. Repeat from *-* to end of round.
Rounds 2+3+4: Work without increasing. Repeat rounds 1-4 until the brim measures 5-10 cm or the desired width, finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet (finish with either Round 3 or 4 as the brim will then look nicest!). Cut the strand and fasten the ends.
