Knitting gauge: 16 sts x 20 rows on needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 in stockinette stitch = 10 x 10 cm / 4’’ x 4’’

Garter stitch: Knit all rows

Pattern: See diagram M.1 and M.2. The diagram shows the pattern from the right side.
Knit pattern as follows:
*M.1 in 4-4-4.5-4.5-4.5-5 cm / 1½”-1½”-1Ύ”-1Ύ”-1Ύ”-2”,
M.1 in 4-4-4.5-4.5-4.5-5 cm / 1½”-1½”-1Ύ”-1Ύ”-1Ύ”-2”,
M.1 in 9-10-10-11-12-12 cm / 3½’’-4”-4”-4 3/8”-4Ύ”-4Ύ”,
repeat from *-* a total of 2 times.
Then knit:
M.1 in 4-4-4.5-4.5-4.5-5 cm / 1½”-1½”-1Ύ”-1Ύ”-1Ύ”-2”,
M.1 in 4-4-4.5-4.5-4.5-5 cm / 1½”-1½”-1Ύ”-1Ύ”-1Ύ”-2”,
and finish with M.2.

Front band: Work garter sts until finished measurements.
Work the 3 outermost sts in double thread throughout.

Increasing tips (applies to collar): Inc 1 st within the outermost st towards mid front by making a yo. On next row knit yo into back of st to avoid making a hole.

Decreasing tips (applies to neckline): Decrease within all garter sts from the right side. Dec as follows before garter sts: K2 tog. Dec as follows after garter sts: slip 1 st as if to knit, K1, psso.

Measuring tips: All measurements should be made while the garment is hanging.

Cast on 67-75-83-91-99-107 sts (including 1edge st each side) using 2 needles size 5.5 mm / US 9 (to make sure the edge becomes elastic). Remove 1 needle and work 4 rows garter st (1st row = right side). Work next row as follows from the right side: 1 edge st, M.1A (= 5 sts), M.1B over the next 56-64-72-80-88-96 sts, M.1C (= 4 sts), 1 edge st.
Continue in pattern – see explanation above.
When piece measures 51-52-53-54-55-57 cm / 20”-20½”-21”-21Ό”-21 5/8”-22½” – read measuring tips – bind off for armhole each side in beg of every row as follows: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 0-1-2-4-5-6 times and 1 st 2-3-4-4-5-6 times = 57-59-61-61-63-65 sts.
Note! Work sts not fitting into pattern after bind offs in stockinette sts. Make sure to keep to the correct number of sts by making as many yo’s as sts knitted tog.
When there are 2 rows of garter sts left in pattern (piece measures approx 69-71-73-75-77-80 cm / 27 1/8”-28”-28Ύ”-29½”-30 3/8”-31½”) bind off the middle 19-21-21-21-23-23 sts for neck = 19-19-20-20-20-21 sts left on each shoulder. Bind off after the last row in pattern, piece measures approx 70-72-74-76-78-81 cm / 27½”-28 3/8”-29 1/8”-30”-30Ύ”-32”.

Cast on 46-46-54-54-62-62 sts (includes 1seam st at side and 12 edge sts towards mid front) using 2 needles size 5.5 mm/ US 9. Remove 1 needle and work 4 rows garter st (1st row = right side), but work the 3 outermost sts towards mid front with double thread (use a separate ball and let the thread follow the piece as you progress).
Then work 2 rows stockinette st. Note! Remember 12 sts towards mid front in garter sts.
Work next row as follows from the right side: 1 seam st, M.1A (= 5 sts), M1.B over 24-24-32-32-40-40 sts, M.1C (= 4 sts), and 12 front band sts.

When piece measures 50-51-52-53-54-55 cm / 19Ύ’’-20’’-20½’’-21’’-21Ό’’-21 5/8’’ inc 1 st towards mid front– read Increasing tips – repeat on every 4th row a total of 8 times.
Work inc sts in garter sts with double thread = 11 sts in double thread after all inc have been made. After the last inc (piece measures approx 64-65-66-67-68-69 cm / 25Ό”-25½”-26”-26 3/8”-26Ύ”-27 1/8”), bind off the 10 outermost sts towards mid front on next row, on the following row cast on 10 new sts over the bind off sts (lapel). Continue in garter sts as before.

At the same time when piece measures 52-53-54-55-56-57 cm / 20½”-21”-21Ό”-21 5/8”-22”-22½” dec 1 st for neck – see Decreasing tips – repeat on every other row a total of 5-2-5-2-6-2 times and then on every 4th row a total of 5-5-6-5-6-6 times.

DROPS crochet hook size 5 mm / US 8

12 wooden beads

Crochet ch whilst inserting beads inn the chain when piece measures 5-12-16-21-31-39-45-57-76-86-93 and 104 cm / 2”-4Ύ”-6Ό”-8Ό”-12Ό”-15Ό”-17Ύ”-22½”-30”-34”-36½” and 41” as follows:
Crochet 1 ch, pull st 1-1.5 cm / ½” long, pull st-loop through a bead (use a pin to push it through), put crochet hook through st again, make a yo, pull yo through st, continue with ch’s. After the last bead, make a ch and cut the thread.
Now crochet 4 bubbles as follows:
Crochet 5 ch (= 1 ch + 1 tr), 6 tr in the first ch just crochet, turn the piece. 4 ch (= 1 tr), now crochet 1 tr in each of the 6 tr from previous row, but crochet the tr’s together as follows: crochet 1 tr in first tr but wait with the last yo and pull-through (= 2 sts on needle), crochet 1 tr in next tr but wait with the last yo and pull-through (= 3 sts on needle), continue like this until all 6 tr have been crochet (= 7 sts on needle).
Pull the last yo on the last tr through all sts on needle. Cut the thread.
Sew on a bubble each end of the hair band and place the other two approx 25 cm / 9Ύ” in from each end (each bubble will have a opening on one side, sew this side to the chain).

Tassels: Cut 7 threads Symphony, each 20 cm / 8’’ long, fold them double, and attach to one end of hair band. Repeat other end.
