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

RELIEF:
When working 1 relief dc, 1 relief tr or 1 relief dtr it is to work around 1 st from previous round (do not work in loops but around the dc from front).

2 TR CABLE:
Skip 1 dc, 1 relief tr around next dc, 1 relief tr around dc skipped.

4 TR CABLE:
Skip 3 dc, 1 relief tr around next dc, 1 relief tr around 3rd st skipped, 1 relief tr around first st skipped, 1 relief tr around 2nd st skipped.

6 DTR CABLE:
Skip 5 dc, 1 relief dtr around next dc, 1 relief dtr around 5th st skipped, 1 relief dtr around 4th st skipped, 1 relief dtr around first st skipped, 1 relief dtr around 2nd st skipped and 1 relief dtr around 3rd st skipped.

INCREASE TIP:
Work 2 dc in same dc

REVERSE CROCHET:
Work as sc but backwards. I.e. crochet around from left to right
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
The piece is worked top down. Crochet 4 ch on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with Nepal and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: Work 18 dc in ring – read CROCHET INFO.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc = 36 dc.

Then work A.1 as follows:
A.1 is repeated 9 times in total on round. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 1: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 2 TR CABLE - see explanation above, over the next 2 dc, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 45 sts.
ROUND 2: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 2 dc, 1 RELIEF dc – see explanation above – around each of the next 2 tr (= cable), 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 54 dc.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 dc in first/next dc, 4 TR CABLE - see explanation above, over the next 4 dc, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round.
ROUND 4: Work * 2 dc in first/next dc, 1 relief dc around each of the next 4 tr, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 63 dc.
ROUND 5: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 2 dc, 4 tr cable over the next 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 72 dc.
ROUND 6: Work * 2 dc in first dc, 1 dc in next dc, 1 relief dc around each of the next 4 tr, 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 81 dc.
ROUND 7: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 2 dc, 6 Dtr CABLE over the next 6 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 90 dc.
ROUND 8: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 2 dc, 1 relief dc around each of the next 6 dtr, 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round.
ROUND 9: Work as 8th round.
ROUND 10: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 2 dc, 6 dtr cable around each of the next 6 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round.
There are now 4 dc between each cable. Repeat 8th-10th round (= A.1A) until piece measures 21 cm / 8 1/4'', adjust to finish with first round in A.1A (= 8th round). Work 1 sc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME dec 10 sts evenly (i.e. work every 8th and 9th st tog) = 80 sc. Work 2 rounds with 1 sc in every sc. Work 1 round with REVERSE CROCHET - see explanation above. Fasten off.
----------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:
The piece is worked top down. Crochet 94-106 ch on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Nepal and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work ch 3, 1 dc in first ch in ch-ring (= 2 dc), * 1 dc in each of the next ch 5, skip 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until 3 ch remain, 1 dc in last 3 ch - READ CROCHET INFO = 80-90 dc. Work 1 dc in every dc AT THE SAME TIME inc 10 dc evenly (i.e. inc 1 dc every 8th-9th dc) – READ INCREASE TIP = 90-100 dc. Then work as follows: * 1 dc in each of the first/next 4 dc, work 6 DTR CABLE - see explanation above (= A.2), over the next 6 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 9-10 times). Repeat A.2A vertically. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Continue pattern like this until piece measures 10-11 cm / 4"-4½". Work next round as follows: * 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc, A.2A over the next 6 sts as before *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 9-10 times) = 99-110 dc on round (includes cable dc). Repeat this inc every 4 cm / 1½'' alternately before and after A.2A, 2 more times = 117-130 dc (includes cable dc). Then work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 7 dc, A.2A over the next 6 sts as before *, repeat from *-* until piece measures 23-24 cm / 9"-9½". Adjust to finish with next to last round in A.2A. Work 2 rounds with 1 dc in every dc.

EDGE:
Work 1 edge with REVERSE CROCHET - see explanation above, with 2 strands Nepal. Fasten off. Work the same way in opposite side of piece.
