INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:
RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.
----------------------------------------------------------
HAT:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle. Change to double pointed needles when necessary.
Cast on 84 stitches with circular needle size 5 mm and Nepal. Work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 in the round (= 28 repeats of 3 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 20 cm insert 7 marker threads in the piece as follows: The first marker thread is inserted after the first 3 stitches on the round (i.e. after 1 knitted stitch), then insert the next 6 with 12 stitches between each. When the last marker thread has been inserted, there are 9 stitches left on the round. Now start the decreases. Continue A.1 upwards, but on the first round, decrease 1 stitch after each marker thread by purling 2 stitches together (= 7 stitches decreased). Decrease in this way every 2nd round a total of 9 times = 21 stitches left. Work 1 round without decreases. On the next round knit all stitches twisted together, two and two = 11 stitches left. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The hat measures approx. 29 cm from the top down. Turn up an edge of approx. 5-6 cm at the bottom of the hat.
----------------------------------------------------------
NECK WARMER:
The piece is worked back and forth on the needle and is sewn together at the end.
Cast on 35 stitches with needle size 5 mm and Nepal. Work 1 RIDGE – see description above. Work pattern from the right side as follows: 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, knit 1, work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 (= 10 repeats of 3 stitches), 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 21 cm insert a marker at the beginning of the next row from the right side (= marker for assembly). When the piece measures 89 cm work 1 ridge over all stitches. Cast off.
To avoid getting a tight cast-off edge, you can use a larger needle size or make a yarn over after approx. every 4th stitch, which is then cast off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the cast-off edge to the one long-side (between the cast-on edge and the marker inserted after 21 cm). Sew inside the cast-off edge and in the outermost stitch along the edge so that the seam is not thick. Cut and fasten the strand.
----------------------------------------------------------
WRIST WARMERS:
The piece is worked back and forth on the needle and is sewn together at the end.
Cast on 32-35 stitches with needle size 5 mm and Nepal. Work pattern from the right side as follows:
2 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH - see description above, knit 1, work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 (= 9-10 repeats of 3 stitches), 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the pattern back and forth in this way. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 16-17 cm cast off. To avoid getting a tight cast-off edge you can use a larger needle or make a yarn over after approx. every 4th stitch which is then cast off. Cut and fasten the strand.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew together the sides of the wrist warmer as follows:
Sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch, in every stitch upwards so that the seam is not thick: Start at the bottom of the wrist warmer and sew the seam 9-10 cm upwards, Cut and fasten the strand. Skip 5 cm (= hole for the thumb) and sew the last 2 cm together.
Work 1 more wrist warmer in the same way.
