INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth – for head band):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round – for neck warmer):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN:
Head band: See diagram A.1.
Neck warmer: See diagrams A.1 and A.2.
Mittens: See diagrams A.1, A.3 and A.4.
The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP (for mittens):
Increase by making 1 yarn over, on the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.

DECREASE TIP (for mittens):
Decrease as follows (start 3 stitches before the marker thread): Knit 2 together, knit 2 (the marker thread sits in between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

HEAD BAND:
The piece is worked back and forth on the needle and sewn together to finish. Cast on 26 stitches with needle size 4 mm / US 6 and Lima. Work 1 RIDGE – see description above, then work as follows – from the right side: 2 stitches garter stitch, purl 1, A.1 (= 20 stitches), purl 1, 2 stitches garter stitch. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue this pattern until the piece measures 48-50 cm / 19"-19 3/4'', work 1 ridge and bind off. Sew the cast-on and bind-off edges together.
----------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle. Cast on 132-154 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and Lima. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above, then work as follows: * A.1 (= 20 stitches), purl 2 *, work from *-* to the end of round (= 6-7 repeats of A.1 in width). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue the pattern until the piece measures 18-20 cm / 7"-8''. Work A.2 over A.1, the purl 2 stitches are continued as before = 144-168 stitches. Work 2 ridges over all stitches, then bind off with knit.
----------------------------------------------------------

RIGHT MITTEN:
Cast on 46-50 stitches with double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 and Lima and knit 1 round. Then work as follows: * Purl 2, knit 2 *, work from *-* over the next 24-28 stitches, work A.3 (= 20 stitches), knit 2.

Work in this way until the rib measures 6 cm / 2 3/8''. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4. The next round is worked as follows: Work 24-28 stitches stockinette stitch and decrease 2 stitches evenly over these stitches, A.1 (= 20 stitches) and 2 stitches stockinette stitch = 44-48 stitches.

Continue the pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 13-14 cm / 5"-5½'' increase 1 stitch on each side of the first stitch on the round for thumb – READ INCREASE TIP! Increase on each side of the increased stitches every 2nd round a total of 5-6 times = 54-60 stitches. Now place the 11-13 thumb stitches on 1 thread. Continue in the round as before, AT THE SAME TIME as you cast on 1 new stitch at the back of the thumb on the next round = 44-48 stitches.

When the mitten measures approx. 23-25 cm / 9"-9 3/4'' (you can try the mitten on if necessary, there is 4 cm/1½" left before finished length), work A.4 over A.1 = 42-46 stitches.

Continue with stockinette stitch over the stitches in A.4. Insert 1 marker thread at the start of the round and 1 marker thread after 21-23 stitches. Now decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat the decreases every 2nd round, 3 more times and then every round a total of 3 times = 14-18 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The mitten measures approx. 27-29 cm / 10½"-11½''.

THUMB:
Place the 11-13 thumb stitches back on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4. In addition, knit up 4 stitches behind the thumb = 15-17 stitches. Work stockinette stitch in the round until the thumb measures 4½-5 cm / 1 3/4"-2'' (you can try the mitten on if necessary, there is now approx. ½ cm / 1/4'' to finished length). Knit all stitches together 2 and 2 on the next 2 rounds = 4-5 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.

LEFT MITTEN:
Cast on and work as for right mitten, but increase for thumb on each side of the 22nd-24th stitch on the round.
