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

NECK WARMER:
Worked in the round on circular needle from bottom up. Loosely cast on 253-273 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Alpaca. Then work WIDE GARTER ST PATTERN 1 - see explanation above, over the first 120-130 sts, work the next 12 sts as follows: K 2, P 3, K 2 (= mid front), P 3 and K 2, wide garter st pattern over the next 121-131 sts. Insert a marker at beg of round and continue with wide garter st pattern and rib this way until 1 ridge in wide garter st pattern has been worked vertically. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE AND READ THE ENTIRE SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING! After one whole ridge in wide garter st pattern vertically, work 5 new sts on each side of rib at the front with rib pattern, i.e. work 5 sts before rib K 2, P 3, after rib work P 3 and K 2. AT THE SAME TIME insert 6 markers in the piece. Insert first marker 45 sts before beg of round, then insert the other markers 18 sts apart. Dec at these markers on first row in every section in stockinette st but alternately 6 and 12 sts. When 6 sts are dec, dec alternately before and after markers (i.e. dec 1 st at each marker). When 12 sts are dec, dec before and after markers (dec 2 sts at each marker).
Continue to dec at the markers and work more and more sts into rib. Dec 10 times in total, after all dec 3 sts remain between each marker. Continue to work sts into rib until there are no more sts in wide garter st pattern. Continue to work rib until rib measures approx. 8 cm / 3 1/8'' measured from where last wide garter st pattern ended (= mid back). Bind off sts with K over K and P over P.

HAT:
Worked in the round on circular needle and then on double pointed needles.
Cast on 120-130 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Alpaca and K 1 row. Then work rib with P 3 and K 2 until piece measures 3-4 cm / 1"-1½". K 1 round while dec 1-4 sts evenly = 119-126 sts. Now work WIDE GARTER ST PATTERN 1 - see explanation above, 4 times in total. Then K 4 rounds. Work WIDE GARTER ST PATTERN 2 - see explanation above, 4 times or until piece measures approx. 22 cm / 8 3/4'' vertically lightly pulled, adjust to work 1 whole ridge in wide garter st pattern. Then P 3 rounds. Insert 7 markers in piece 17-18 sts between every marker. Now work in stockinette st from here AT THE SAME TIME dec 2 sts at every marker - see DECREASE TIP above. Dec like this on every 3rd round 4 times in total, then every other round 3 times in total = 21-28 sts remain on needle. On next round K 1-0 and K 2 and 2 tog = 11-14 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through sts, tighten tog and fasten.

WRIST WARMERS:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Loosely cast on 48 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Alpaca. Work WIDE GARTER ST PATTERN 1 - see explanation above, 7 times in total, then K 4 rounds. Then work WIDE GARTER ST PATTERN 2 - see explanation above, 6 times in total. Finish with P 3 round, K 1 round and loosely bind off with K. Knit another wrist warmer the same way.
