Hat and scarf:
Knitting tension: 28 sts x 30 rows using needles 3.5 mm in pattern = 10x10cm
Pattern: See diagrams M.1 to M.5

Hat:
Cast on 140 sts loosely using brown and double pointed needles 3.5mm. K 1 round and P 1 round. Continue in M.1 whilst knitting stripes following M.4. Knit M. once and continue in off-white and M.2 until piece measures 12cm from lowest point. Change to M.3 and decrease as shown in diagram. After M.3, there are 40 sts left on needle. Cut thread and pull through remaining sts. Hat measures approx 22 cm from lowest point.

Crochet rosettes: Crochet 4 cs using pale pink and crochet hook 7mm and form a ring with a sl st.
1st round: *6 ch, 1 dc in ring*, repeat from *-* a total of 5 times. Cut thread. Sew on a little safety pin to back of rosette. Make another using dark purple-mix.

Scarf:
Cast on 87 sts using brown and needles 3.5mm. Knit 2 rows garter stitch (1st row = right side). Knit next row as follows: 3 edge sts (garter throughout), M.5 over the next 80 sts, k 1 st from beg of M.5 (in order that the pattern starts the same way either side) and finish with 3 edge sts (garter). Continue the pattern like this, whilst knitting stripes after M.4 – NB! 1st row in M4 is already knitted. After 1 report of M.5, there are 63 sts on needle. Change to off-white and continue in M.2 with 3 edge sts (garter) each side. NB: Remember that pattern has to start the same way each side as before. When scarf measures 80 cm knit M.5 again, whilst knitting stripes after M.4, but start at the top of each pattern diagram so that the pattern is knitted mirrored, i.e. inc. sts in M.5 by knitting 2 sts in 1 instead of dec. After M.5 and M.4, there are 87 sts on needle. K 1 row from the wrong side, K 1st row in M.5 while casting off this row to make the edge wavy.

Gloves
Knitting tension: 32 sts x 34 rows using needles 2.5mm in pattern = 10x10cm
25 sts x 34 rows using needles 2.5mm in stocking sts = 10x10cm
Pattern: See diagrams M.4 and M.6 to M.9. Diagrams show patterns from the right side

Right glove: Cast on 80 (96) sts using two 2.5mm double pointed needles and dark brown. Remove one needle, distribute sts on 4 double pointed needles 2.5mm. K 1 row, P 1 row. Continue in M.6 whilst knitting stripes after M.4. After M.6 there are 50 (60) sts on row. Continue in off-white (until finished measurements) and M.7. When glove measures 11 (12) cm knit M.8, at the same time dec 2 sts evenly on last row of M.8 for size M/L(no dec for size XS/S) = 50 (58) sts. After M.8 knit next row as follows 25 (29) stocking sts (= palm of hand), insert a marking thread (= side), 3 (5) stocking sts, M.9 (= 19 sts), 3 (5) sts stocking sts, insert a marking thread (= side). Continue as follows: At the same time, on 2nd row of M.9 (piece measures approx 13 (14) cm) increase for thumb on each side of 2nd st on row. Inc. on every second row a total of 5(6) times = 11 (13) sts – inc. by picking up st from previous row and K it. When piece measures approx 18 (20) cm, put the 11 (13) thumb sts on a safety pin. On next row, cast on 1 new st over these = 50 (58) sts. Continue in pattern as before. When piece measures 22 (24) cm (adjust after a full report of M.9), K 2 rows stocking sts whilst adjusting number of sts to 46 (54). Now put the first and the last 19 (22) sts on thread and knit little finger over the remaining 8 (10) sts.
Little finger: Cast on 4 (4) new sts towards thread = 12 (14) sts. Distribute sts on 3 needles and knit stocking sts until finger measures 4.5 (6) cm, on next round knit all sts 2 and 2 together and pull thread through remaining sts.
Put all sts from thread back on needles and cast on 2 new sts towards little finger. Knit 3 rows stocking sts over all sts. Now put sts back on 2 threads, i.e. 20 (23) sts from palm of hand on 1 thread and 20 (23) sts from upper hand on 1 thread.
Ring finger: Take 6 (7) sts from each thread and cast on 2 new sts towards middle finger = 16 (18) sts. Distribute sts on 3 needles and knit stocking stitch until finger measures 6.5 (8) cm, on next round knit all sts 2 and 2 together and pull thread through remaining sts.
Middle finger: Take 7 (7) sts from thread 1, and 6 (7) sts from thread 2, and cast on 1 new st towards index finger and 1 towards ring finger = 15 (16) sts. Distribute sts on 3 needles and knit stocking stitch until finger measures 7 (8) cm, on next round knit all sts 2 and 2 together and pull thread through remaining sts.
Index finger: Put the remaining 14 (16) sts back on needle and cast on 3 (4) new sts towards middle finger = 17 (20) sts. Knit stocking stitch until finger measures 5.5 (7) cm, on next round knit all sts 2 and 2 together and pull thread through remaining sts.

Thumb: Put the 11 (13) thumb sts back on needle and cast on 7 (8) new sts behind these = 18 (21) sts. Knit approx 5 (6) cm stocking stitch, knit all sts 2 and 2 together and cast off as on the other fingers.

Knit another glove, but mirrored, i.e. after M.8 knit following row as follows: Insert marking thread (= side), 3 (5) stocking sts, M.9 (=19 sts), 3 (5) stocking sts, insert marking thread (= side), 25 (29) stocking sts (= palm of hand) and inc. for thumb each side of last but one st on row.
