HAT:
Cast on 110 sts on small circular needle size 3.5 mm with Karisma. Work 2 rounds stocking st and then 6 rounds rib, K1/P1. Continue in M.1 (= 10 repeats round the hat).
Remember the knitting tension!
After M.1 piece measures approx 22 cm and there are 40 sts left on round. Work 2 rounds stocking st.
Work next round as follows: * K2, K2 tog *, repeat from *-* = 30 sts. Work 1 round stocking st.
Work next round as follows: * K1, K2 tog *, repeat from *-* = 20 sts. Now work 1 round K all sts tog 2 by 2 = 10 sts. Cut the thread and pull through remaining sts. Tighten thread and fasten. Hat measures approx 24 cm.

GLOVES:
Right glove: Cast on 44 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with Karisma. P 1 round and continue in M.2 (= 4 repeats round the glove). When piece measures 5 cm (adjust to a full pattern repeat) work 1 round stocking st and now continue in rib, K1/P1, for 4 cm – on the last round dec 4 sts evenly = 40 sts. Now measure piece from here!
Continue as follows: 2 repeats of M.2 (= upper hand), stocking st on the remaining 18 sts (= under hand) – insert a marker in the first stocking st (= thumb st). After 4 rows in M.2 inc for thumb as follows: inc 1 st on both sides of thumb st – inc by making 1 YO, on next round work YO into back of loop to avoid a hole. Inc like this on every 3rd round a total of 5 times = 11 thumb sts. When piece measures 6 cm slip the 11 thumb sts on a stitch holder. On next round cast on 1 new st over thumb sts = 40 sts in total. Continue in pattern and stocking st as before until piece measures 9 cm (from rib).
Now keep the first 5 sts on needle, slip the next 32 sts on a stitch holder and keep the last 3 sts on needle.
Little finger: = 8 sts, cast on 2 new sts towards the hand = 10 sts. Work 6 cm stocking st in the round, and now K tog all sts 2 by 2. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
Hand: Slip sts from stitch holder back on needle, pick up 3 sts towards little finger = 35 sts. Work 2 rounds stocking st. Now keep the 3 new sts towards little finger + 5 sts either side of these on needle. Slip the remaining 22 sts back on stitch holder.
Ring finger: = 13 sts, cast on 1 new st towards sts on stitch holder = 14 sts. Work 7.5 cm stocking st in the round, and now K tog all sts 2 by 2. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
Middle finger: Slip 5 sts from each end of stitch holder back on needle, pick up 3 sts towards ring finger and cast on 1 new st towards sts on stitch holder = 14 sts. Work 8.5 cm stocking st in the round, and now K tog all sts 2 by 2. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
Index finger: Slip the remaining 12 sts from stitch holder back on needle, pick up 3 sts towards middle finger = 15 sts. Work 7 cm stocking st in the round, and now K tog all sts 2 by 2. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
Thumb: Slip thumb sts on stitch holder back on needle and pick up 3 sts in the edge behind thumb st (= st with marker) = 14 sts. Work 6 cm stocking st in the round, and now K tog all sts 2 by 2. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
Left glove: Like right glove, but mirrored, i.e. inc for thumb on each side of the last st on round. When working little finger beg as follows: Slip the first 17 sts on a stitch holder (= upper hand), keep the next 8 sts on needle and slip the last 15 sts on another stitch holder (= under hand).
