GARTER ST: K sts on every row.

PATTERN:
See diagram A-1 for head band. See diagram A-1 and A-2 for mittens. Diagrams shows 1 repetition of pattern, all rows in diagram are seen from RS.
----------------------------------------------------------

HEAD BAND:
Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 22 sts on needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Nepal. K 1 row from WS. Work next row as follows: 2 sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, * P 2, K 2 in each of the next 2 sts (= K 4), P 2 *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, finish with 2 sts in garter st = 28 sts.
Work 1 row from WS with K over K and P over P with 2 sts in garter st in each side.
Continue with A-1 with 2 sts in garter st in each side until piece measures approx 48-50 cm / 19"-19 3/4'' - stop after 1 full repetition of pattern.
Work next row as follows: 2 sts in garter st, * P 2, K 2 tog, K 2 tog, P 2 *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, finish with 2 sts in garter st = 22 sts. K 1 row from WS over all sts, then bind off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew head band tog mid back, edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.
Crochet with Puddel on hook size 5 mm / H/8 along both sides of head band as follows: 1 sc in first st, * ch 2, skip 1 ridge (= 2 K rows), 1 sc in next ridge *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
----------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:

LOOSELY cast on 62 sts on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 with Puddel - NOTE: Make sure that the cast on edge is not too tight.

----------------------------------------------------------

LEFT MITTEN:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 40 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Nepal. Work rib = P 3/K 2 for 10 cm / 4'' (it is important that round beg with 3 P sts).
Work next round as follows: P 2 tog, P 1, * K 2 in each of the next 2 sts (= K 4), P 1, P 2 in next st, P 1 (i.e. 3 P becomes 4 P) *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, K 2 in each of the next 2 sts (= K 4), ** P 2 tog, P 1, K 2 **, repeat from **-** 4 more times = 42 sts. K 1 round and P 1 round over all sts (crochet in this P-round). Switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7. Continue with diagram A-1 over the first 24 sts and P over the last 18 sts – insert a marker in the next to last st on round (= thumb st).
When 2 cm / 3/4'' have been worked after rib, inc 1 st on each side of thumb st by making 1 YO, on next round P YOs twisted to avoid holes. Repeat inc every other round 4 more times (thumb sts inc by 2 sts after every inc) = 11 thumb sts and 52 sts in total.
When piece measures 16 cm / 6 1/4'' in total, slip the 11 thumb sts on a stitch holder and cast on 1 new st over thumb = 42 sts.
Continue A-1 on top of hand and P inside hand until A-1 has been worked 2 times vertically. Then work A-2 on top of hand and P inside hand. When reaching the row marked with 1 arrow in diagram, beg dec.
On top of hand dec after diagram and inside hand P tog the first and the last 2 sts every other round a total of 4 times. On last round in diagram, P the remaining 10 P-sts tog 2 by 2 = 12 sts remain on needle (i.e. 7 sts on top of hand and 5 sts inside hand), cut the thread, pull it through the remaining sts and tighten.
The entire mitten measures approx. 30 cm / 11 3/4''.

Work the same way in the P-round after rib.
