GARTER ST (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

STRIPES:
Always pick up sts with gray, then work 1 row from WS with gray. Then work * 2 rows with rose mist, 2 rows with gray *, repeat from *-*.

PATTERN (applies to scarf):
See illustration A.1.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by working 2 sts in one st.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st by K 2 sts tog.

HALF DOMINO SQUARE (hat):
Insert 1 marker in the middle st.
Row 1 (= WS): K until 1 st remains before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso (= 2 sts dec), K rest of row (= 2 sts dec).
Row 2 (= RS): K until 1 st before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 sts tog, psso (= 2 sts dec), K rest of row.
Row 3: K until 1 st remains before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso (= 2 sts dec), K rest of row.
Row 4: Work the first 2 sts K tog, (= 1 st dec), K until 1 st remains before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso (= 2 sts dec), K until 2 sts remain, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec).
Repeat 1st- 4th row, i.e. so that 1 st is dec on each side of marker on every row and dec 1 st at beg and end of every 4th row until 1 st remain, cut the yarn and pull through the last st.

DOMINO SQUARE (wrist warmer):
Insert a marker in the middle st.
Row 1 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 2 (= RS): K until 1 st remain before st with marker, 1 YO, K 1 (= st with marker), 1 YO, K the rest of row.
Row 3: K all sts. NOTE: K YOs twisted to avoid holes.
Repeat 2nd and 3rd row until 13 sts have been inc in total on each side of mid st = 29 sts in total on needle. Adjust so that last row is worked from WS (with rose mist).
----------------------------------------------------------

BERET:
First work a circle with half domino squares. Then pick up st around edge on the 7 half domino squares before continuing in the round with an edge in garter st.

Cast on 65-73 sts with gray on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. Work STRIPES and HALF DOMINO SQUARE (hat) - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE. When entire half domino square has been worked vertically, continue as follows: Beg from RS with gray and pick up 1 st in every st along the cast-on edge down to st with marker on previous half domino square worked = 32-36 sts, then cast on 33-37 new sts. Then work half domino square the same way as on first half domino square.
Continue like this by picking up sts and working half domino squares in the round until 7 half domino squares have been worked in total. NOTE: When working the last half domino square, pick up sts along cast-on edge on previous half domino square worked, then pick up sts along cast-on edge on the first half domino square.

Now pick up sts around the edge of hat as follows:
Beg from RS with gray on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and pick up 28-32 sts along the edge of each half domino square = 196-224 sts.
Insert a marker here. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Work in GARTER ST in the round - see explanation above. When 2 ridges with gray have been worked, continue in the round with stripes and garter st as before and on next round dec as follows: * K 26-30 sts, K the next 2 sts tog *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 189-217 sts.
Dec like this every other ridge a total of 8-8 times and then every ridge 3-6 times in total = 119-126 sts. NOTE: On every dec work 1 st less between every dec on every round with dec. Continue in garter st and stripes until piece measures 12-13 cm / 4 3/4"-5'' from marker. Now work 4 ridges with gray. Bind off.
----------------------------------------------------------

SCARF:
Worked back and forth on needle.

PART 1:
Cast on 1 st on needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with gray. Work in GARTER ST and STRIPES - see explanation above. Inc 1 st at the end of every row from RS – READ INCREASE TIP, inc like this 17 times in total = 18 sts on needle. Work 1 row from WS while dec 1 st - READ DECREASE TIP = 17 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Slip sts on a stitch holder. Cut the yarn.

PART 2:
Pick up 17 sts along the ridges in the side on part 1 - A.1 = approx. 1 st in every ridge. Work in garter st and stripes as before and at beg of every row from RS inc 1 st. Inc like this 17 times in total = 34 sts. Then dec 1 st at beg of every row from RS. Dec like this 17 times in total = 17 sts. Work last row from WS. Slip sts on a stitch holder. Cut the yarn.

PART 3:
Pick up 1 st in every ridge from the side on part 2 (= 34 sts), slip sts from stitch holder on part 1 back on needle and work these sts = 51 sts. Work in garter st and stripes as before. At beg of every row from WS dec 1 st. Dec like this 34 times in total = 17 sts. Work last row from WS. Slip sts on a stitch holder. Cut the yarn.

PART 4:
Slip sts from stitch holder on part 2 back on left needle and work them, pick up 1 st in every ridge from part 3 = 51 sts. Work in garter st and stripes as before. At beg of every row from RS dec 1 st. Dec like this 34 times in total = 17 sts. Work last row from WS. Slip sts on a stitch holder. Cut the yarn.

Repeat 3rd and 4th part upwards until scarf measures approx. 134 cm / 52 3/4'' along the longest of the sides. Next to last part = part 5. Work as part 3 but keep sts on needle after dec = 17 sts. Continue with garter st and stripes as before. At beg and end of every row from RS dec 1 st. Dec as follows 8 times in total, pull yarn through last st. Cut the yarn.

LAST PART (PART 6):
Slip sts from stitch holder back on left needle and work them, pick up 1 st in every ridge from previous part = 51 sts. Work in garter st and stripes as before. At end of every row from RS dec 1 st. Dec as follows 25 times in total, pull yarn through last st.

WRIST WARMERS:
Cast on 3 sts with gray on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5.
Work STRIPES and DOMINO SQUARE (wrist warmer) - see explanation above.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When entire domino square has been worked, insert a marker in last st worked (= from WS). Cut the yarn. Slip all sts on a stitch holder (or an extra circular needle).

Cast on 34-36 sts with gray on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. Work 1 row from WS. Then work back and forth in stripes and garter st as follows:
Row 1 (RS): Work until 3 sts remain on needle, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec) and K next st tog with st with marker on domino square + next st on domino square (= 2 sts from domino square)
Row 2 (WS): Turn and work back.
Row 3: Work until 3 sts remain on needle, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec) and K next st tog with the next 2 sts on domino square.
Row 4: Turn and work back.
Row 5: Work until 3 sts remain on needle, K the next 2 sts tog (= 1 st dec) and K next st tog with the next 2 sts on domino square.
Row 6: Turn and K back.
Row 7: Work all sts.
Row 8: Turn and work back.
Row 9: Work until 3 sts remain on needle, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec) and K the last st tog with the next 2 sts on domino square.
Row 10: Turn and K back.
Repeat from 3rd-10th row 1 more time (= 18 rows in total). There are now 27-29 sts on needle.
Now work as follows:
Row 19: Work until 1 st remains on needle, K this st
tog with next st on domino square (= mid st at the top of domino square).
Row 20: Turn and work back.
Then work as follows:
Row 1: K until 1 st remains on needle, 1 YO, K the next st tog with the next 2 sts on domino square.
Row 2: Turn and K back. K YO twisted to avoid holes.
Rows 3-6: Work as 1st and 2nd row.
Row 7: K all sts.
Row 8: Turn and K back.
Row 9: K until 1 st remains on needle, 1 YO, K the next st tog with the next 2 sts on domino square.
Row 10: Turn and K back. K YO twisted to avoid holes.
Repeat 3rd-10th row 1 more time (= 18 rows in total).
When all sts on domino square have been worked tog with ridges and there are 34-36 sts on needle. Insert a marker here. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE.
Continue back and forth with stripes and garter st until piece measures 8-9 cm / 3"-3½" - adjust to finish with a stripe in rose mist. Bind off.
Make sure that the bind-off edge is not too tight.
Sew bind-off edge and cast-on edge tog by sewing one and one st neatly tog with gray. Fasten off.
Knit another wrist warmer the same way.
