NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2 – work 1st row from RS.

CROCHET INFO 1:
Replace first htr at beg of every htr row with 2 ch.

CROCHET INFO 2:
At beg of every dc round, replace first dc with 1 ch and finish every round with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.
Replace first tr at beg of every tr round with 3 ch, finish every round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

DECREASE TIP 1:
Work 2 dc into 1 dc: Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook.

DECREASE TIP 2:
Work 2 tr into 1 tr: Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 strands on hook), then work next tr but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook.
--------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Work in the round but beg with a ribbon worked sideways at the bottom.
RIBBON:
Work 8 ch on hook size 4.5 mm with Nepal, and work 1st row as follows: 1 htr in 3rd ch from hook (= 2 htr), 1 htr in each of the next 5 ch = 7 htr, turn piece. READ CROCHET INFO 1. Then work htr back and forth but work every htr in back loop of st (i.e. not through whole st) = rib texture. Continue until piece measures approx. 49-53 cm, cut the yarn and sew tog short sides to form a ring – ribbon measures approx. 4 cm in width. Fasten the strand.
CROWN:
Now work around the edge on ribbon.
Work * 1 dc in each of the next 3 rows, work 2 dc in next row *, repeat from *-* the entire round - READ CROCHET INFO 2. = approx. 83-90 dc - then work 1 round with dc AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 80-85 dc - READ DECREASE TIP 1!
Now work according to 1st round in diagram as follows: A.1, A.2 16-17 times in total in width. Repeat row 2 and 3 of diagram 2 times vertically, then piece will measure approx. 11 cm incl ribbon. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Continue to work in tr, AT THE SAME TIME dec as follows: READ DECREASE TIP 2! Dec 8-9 sts evenly = 72-76 tr. On next round, dec 8-7 tr evenly. Repeat dec every other round 4 times in total = 40-48 tr. Then dec 8-6 tr evenly every round 1-2 times in total = 32-36 tr. Now work dc with dec as follows: READ DECREASE TIP 1 – Work 2 and 2 dc tog = 16-18 dc. Repeat dec on next round = 8-9 dc. Cut the yarn, baste it up and down through sts, pull yarn to tighten and fasten tightly. The hat measures approx. 24-25 cm vertically.
----------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:
Worked in the round. Crochet 144-156 ch on hook size 4.5 mm with Nepal and form 1 ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO 2 - Work 1 tr in each of the first 5 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 5 ch *, repeat from *-* = 120-130 tr.
ROUND 2: Work 1 tr in every tr.
Now work according to 1st round in diagram as follows: A.1, A.2 24-26 times in total in width. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Repeat row 2 and 3 of diagram vertically until piece measures approx. 36-38 cm – adjust after 1 whole repetition vertically - then continue as follows: 1 round with 1 tr in every dc, then 1 round with 1 tr in every tr. Fasten off.
----------------------------------------------------------

MITTEN:
Crochet 30-35 LOOSE ch on hook size 4.5 mm with Nepal and form 1 ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch. Work cuff according to diagram's 1st round as follows: A.1, A.2 6-7 times in total in width. Work diagram 1 time vertically, then work 1 round with 1 dc in every dc - READ CROCHET INFO 2 = 30-35 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Then work tr in the round with 1 tr in every st AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 27-30 tr by working 2 tr tog evenly – READ DECREASE TIP 2 - AT THE SAME TIME when 3 rounds have been worked with tr, inc 1 tr for thumb on each side of 1st st at beg of round - inc 1 tr by working 2 tr in same tr. Repeat inc on each side of this st every round 4-5 times in total = 35-40 tr on round (thumb sts = 9-11 tr). Work next round as follows: Work 1 sl st in each of the first 6-7 tr at beg of round, 3 ch (= 1 tr), then work 1 tr in each of the next 25-28 tr, 1 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round = 26-29 tr and 1 ch on round. On next round, work 1 tr in every tr and 1 tr in ch at end of round = 27-30 tr. Then work tr in the round until mitten measures 18-21 cm from division at cuff (try the mitten on, approx. 3 cm remain until finished measurements).
Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 tr in every tr AT THE SAME TIME work every 2nd and 3rd tr tog = 18-20 tr.
ROUND 2: Work 1 tr in every tr AT THE SAME TIME work 2 and 2 tr tog = 9-10 tr.
ROUND 3: Work 1 dc in every tr AT THE SAME TIME work 2 and 2 dc tog. Cut the yarn, baste it up and down through sts, pull yarn to tighten and fasten tightly.

THUMB:
ROUND 1: Work 1 sl st in the first of the 9-11 thumb sts, 3 ch (= 1 tr), then work 1 tr in each of the 8-10 tr, then work 6 tr behind thumb AT THE SAME TIME work these 6 tr tog 2 by 2 – see explanation above = 12-14 tr.
ROUND 2 + 3: Work 1 tr in every tr = 12-14 tr.
Try the mitten on, approx. 1 cm remains until finished thumb measurements. Work 1 more round with 1 tr in every tr if needed.
NEXT ROUND: Work 1 tr in every tr AT THE SAME TIME work 2 and 2 tr tog = 6-7 tr.
LAST ROUND: Work 1 dc in every tr AT THE SAME TIME work 2 and 2 dc tog.
Cut the yarn, baste it up and down through sts, pull yarn to tighten and fasten tightly.

Work another mitten but make sure to work thumb inc on each side of last st on round (instead of 1st st on round).

Diagram
