FALSE FISHERMAN’S RIB:
Row 1 (WS): * P 1, K 2 *.
Row 2 (RS): * P 2, K 1 in st below *, repeat from * - *.
Repeat 1st and 2nd row.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc from RS by working 1 YO after K sts. On next row (WS) K YO twisted (i.e work in back loop instead of front loop) to avoid holes. On next inc make YO before K sts so that inc are alternately on left and right side of P sections.
----------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:
Worked back and forth on circular needle, top down. Cast on 42 sts on circular needle size 9 mm with Eskimo. Work first row as follows from RS: K 1, * P 2, K 1 *, repeat from *-* and finish with P 2. Then work as follows from WS: K 2, FALSE FISHERMAN’S RIB - see explanation above, finish with P 1. On next row from RS work as follows: K 1, false fisherman’s rib, finish with P 2. Repeat 1st and 2nd row AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 12 cm inc all 2 P sts to 3 P sts (seen from RS) = 14 sts inc – read INCREASE TIP = 56 sts. Repeat inc of P sts when piece measures 14 cm = 70 sts. Then inc the same way every 3 cm 3 more times = 112 sts on needle. When piece measures 24 cm, loosely cast off.
Sew neck warmer tog edge to edge in front loop of outermost sts.

HAT:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 44 sts on circular needle size 9 mm with Eskimo. Work rib = K 1/P 1. Work like this until piece measures 4 cm. On next row from RS inc 1 st in every P st (= 22 sts inc) = 66 sts. Then work as follows from WS: K 2, FALSE FISHERMAN’S RIB - see explanation above, finish with P 1. On next row from RS work as follows: K 1, false fisherman’s rib, finish with P 2. Repeat 1st and 2nd row until piece measures 17-19 cm. On next row from RS work as follows: K 1, * P 2 tog, K 1*, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, finish with P 2 = 44 sts. Work 3 rows with K over K and P over P. K all sts tog 2 by 2 = 22 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts. Tighten tog and fasten. Sew hat tog edge to edge in front loop of outermost sts.

I tryed to do this but I notice after trying that start needs to be reverse side. So when in the instruction says 1right "2wrong, 1right" this extent first layer needs to be 1wrong "2right, 1wrong" and second layer needs to be 1right "2wrong, false englsih rib"

The increase tip states: On next row (WS) K YO twisted (ie work in the back of the loop instead of the front of the loop) to avoid holes. However, on the wrong side when one comes to the YO the stitch that should be knitted is a purl stitch (according to the pattern) not a knit stitch. So you need to purl into the back of the loop, do you not? I have no idea how to do this. Can you please clarify what is needed here.

Dear Renee, you inc in P sections seen from RS, from WS, these sts are K. Happy knitting!

Renée 05.02.2014 - 14:45:

In your answer to my query you stated finish with P2 for the WS row. Did you mean you finish with P1? As this is what the pattern states for the WS row. Can you please clarify.

DROPS Design 05.02.2014 kl. 14:59:

Dear Renée, you are correct, I'm sorry, WS row are worked starting with K2 and finishing with P1. Happy knitting!

RHS 03.02.2014 - 17:25:

The pattern states: 'Repeat the 1st and 2nd rows AT THE SAME TIME...', but by this stage in the pattern 3 rows have been knitted. Can you tell me how you continue from this point. What are the 1st and 2nd rows that one needs to continue in/repeat. The pattern is rather unclear.

DROPS Design 04.02.2014 kl. 09:03:

Dear RHS, you repeat row 1 (WS) and row 2 (RS) from "False english rib with double sts" until piece measures 12 cm for neckwarmer or 17-18 cm for hat. Happy knitting!

Renee 03.02.2014 - 17:09:

I worked 1st (RS) and 2nd (WS) rows. Then pattern states: repeat 1st & 2nd rows. Do you continue knitting exactly as you did for the 1st & 2nd rows? Starting each RS row with K1 & then False English rib with double sts, finishing with P2? Then knit each WS row starting with K2 then False English rib & finishing with P1? Or do you just continue after the 1st and 2nd rows with the False English rib with double st pattern?

DROPS Design 04.02.2014 kl. 09:02:

Dear Renee, from WS you start row with K2, then repeat from *-* from false english rib row 1 and finish with P2. From RS, you start with K1, repeat from *-* for row 2 in pattern, and finish with P2. Repeat these 2 rows this way. Happy knitting!

Is this pattern a revised version of an older pattern, with pattern no. ee469? I prefer the hat in pattern ee469, but the neck warmer in this pattern, as it has a firmer around the neck. Do you think it would look odd to knit the hat from the older pattern and the neck warmer from this pattern? As slightly different stitches and needle sizes are used.

DROPS Design 30.12.2013 kl. 15:56:

Dear Renée, ee-469 is another version of a set with this kind of pattern but different result. If you like to, you can use both patterns to make your own set. Just have a swatch and check how far you like it. Happy knitting!
