PATTERN:
See diagram M.1 for head band and diagram M.2 for neck warmer. The diagrams show pattern from RS.

TIP FOR SWITCHING THREADS:
When switching ball with Polaris, split the old thread in two on the last 15 cm – cut off one part, do the same on the new thread. Place the first and last 15 cm on top of each other so that the yarn is the normal thickness and continue to work – this is done to make the thread switch invisible in the yarn.
