Knitting tension: 26 sts x 34 rows on needles size 2.5 mm in stocking stitch = 10x10cm. 26 sts x 52 rows in garter sts = 10 x 10 cm.
Garter sts: knit all rows.
Rib: *K2, P2*, repeat from *-*

GLOVES:

Right glove: The glove is knitted back and forth on pointed needles and sewn tog at the side afterwards. Cast on (62) 70 using two 2.5mm needles and Alpaca (to make sure the edge becomes elastic). Remove 1 needle and knit 5 rows garter sts. Knit next row as follows from the WS: 1 st in garter sts, *P2, K2*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 st in garter sts. Continue in Rib until piece measures (11) 12 cm – adjust so that next row is from the RS. Now P all P2 tog to P1 = (47) 53 sts. P 3 rows and continue in garter sts until finished measurements. At the same time on the first row after the Rib dec (5) 3 sts evenly = (42) 50 sts. Insert a marking thread in the (22) 26 st (seen from the RS).
Thumb: At the same time when piece measures (13) 14 cm inc 1 st on each side of the MT on every 4th row a total of (3) 4 times = (7) 9 thumb sts (inc by making a yo and knit into back of yo on the returning row to avoid making a hole). When piece measures (18) 20 cm put the (7) 9 thumb sts on a thread and cast on 1 new st over the thread = (42) 50 sts. Continue in garter sts as before. When piece measures (22) 24 cm knit the fingers as follows from the RS:
Littlefinger: K1, inc 1 st, K (3) 4, put the middle (34) 40 sts on a thread, inc 1 st, K (3) 4 sts, inc 1 st, K1 = (11) 13 sts on needle. Knit garter sts until finger measures approx (5) 7 cm. Now knit all sts tog 2 by 2, cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts.
Put the (34) 40 sts from thread back on needle and knit 4 rows garter sts over all sts. Make sure the first row is from the RS.
Ring Finger: K1, inc 1 st, K (4) 5, put (23) 27 sts on a thread, inc 1 st, K (5) 6 sts, inc 1 st, K1 = (14) 16 sts on needle. Knit garter sts until finger measures approx (7.5) 9 cm. Now knit all sts tog 2 by 2, cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts.
Put the (23) 27 sts from thread back on needle.
Middle finger: K1, inc 1 st, K (5) 6, put (11) 13 sts on a thread, inc 1 st, K (5) 6 sts, inc 1 st, K1 = (15) 17 sts on needle. Knit garter sts until finger measures approx (7.5) 9 cm. Now knit all sts tog 2 by 2, cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts.
Index finger: Put the last (11) 13 sts from thread back on needle. Knit garter sts, at the same time inc 4 sts evenly = (25) 27 sts. When finger measures approx (6) 7.5 cm knit all sts tog 2 by 2, cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts.
Thumb: Put the (7) 9 thumb sts back on needle and pick up (7) 9 sts behind these = (14) 18 sts. Knit approx (5.5) 6 cm garter sts, knit all sts 2 and 2, cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts.

Assembly: Sew fingers tog in the outer loops and sew tog glove at side.

Crochet border: Crochet a border round the glove opening with crochet hook size 7 mm and Eskimo as follows: 1 dc in first st (beg in the middle of 2 knitted sts), *1 ch, 1 dc in next 2 K sts*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 ch and 1 sl st in dc from beg of row.

Knit another glove, but mirrored – i.e. insert a MT in the (21) 25 st and inc for thumb on both sides of MT.

HAT:

Knitted back and forth on needle and sewn tog at the side afterwards. Loosely cast on (122) 142 sts on needle size 2.5 mm with Alpaca. P 1 row from WS and continue in Rib (K2, P2) with 1 edge st in garter sts each side. When piece measures 6 cm insert 5 marking threads as follows: the first after 1 st, the remaining 4 with (24) 28 sts between each. There are (25) 29 sts after the last MT. Now continue in garter sts and inc to the left of all MT (seen from the RS) on every other row: 4 times and then on every 4th row: 7 times = (177) 197) sts (inc by making a yo, K into back of yo on returning row to avoid making a hole). When piece measures (9) 10 cm from the Rib dec to the left of all MT (seen from the RS) on every other row: (31) 34 times = (22) 27 sts (dec by K2 tog). Knit remaining sts tog 2 by 2, cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts. Sew hat tog mid back inside 1 edge st.
