INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. A.1 is for hat, A.2 for neck warmer. A.3 and A.4 for mittens.

INCREASE TIP (for mittens): 
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next round work the yarn over twisted to prevent a hole.

DECREASE TIP (for mittens): 
Start decreasing 1 stitch before the marker thread in each side. Place 1 stitch on the cable needle behind the piece, slip 1 stitch, place the stitch from the cable needle back on the left needle, knit 2 stitches together, lift the slipped stitch over = 2 stitches decreased. Decrease in this way in both sides = 4 stitches decreased.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, change to double pointed needles when necessary. Cast on 56-60 stitches with circular needle size 7 mm and 2 strands Air. Work rib, purl 2 /knit 2 until the piece measures 4 cm. Change to circular needle size 8 mm. Continue working as follows: A.1 (= 14 stitches) and stocking stitch over the remaining 42-46 stitches. Continue until the piece measures 18-19 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Insert 5 markers in the piece: Insert the first marker 1-3 stitches after A.1, then the next 4 markers with 8 stitches between each one (insert the markers between stitches, not in the stitches). On the next round decrease 1 stitch after each marker, decrease by knitting 2 stitches together (= 5 stitches decreased) = 51-55 stitches. Decrease every 2nd round a total of 5 times, AT THE SAME TIME on the last decrease, decrease 4 stitches evenly over the cable in A.1 = 27-31 stitches. On the next round knit all stitches together, 2 and 2 = 14-16 stitches. Work 1 round, then knit all stitches together one more time = 7-8 stitches.

Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The piece measures approx. 25-26 cm.

NECK WARMER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle. Cast on 96 stitches with circular needle size 7 mm and 2 strands Air. Work rib, purl 2 /knit 2 until the piece measures 5 cm.

Repeat the increase on each side of the increased stitches on the next round = 5 stitches in the thumb gusset. Work 2-3 rounds without increases. Then place the 5 thumb stitches on 1 thread. Cast on 1 new stitch behind the stitches on the thread = 29 stitches. Insert 2 marker threads in the piece; in the first stitch and in the 13th stitch (= in each side). Continue with stocking stitch and A.3. When the piece measures 24-26 cm decrease on each side of the stitches with marker threads - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat the decreases every round, a total of 5 times = 9 stitches left. AT THE SAME TIME as you work the last decreases, decrease 3 stitches evenly over A.3, decrease 1 stitch by knitting 2 stitches together = 6 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. 

THUMB:

On the next round decrease on each side of the stitches with the marker threads - READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat the decreases on the next round = 2 stitches left. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.
