INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN:
Scarf: See diagrams A.1 to A.12.
Hat: See diagrams A.1 and A.13 to A.15.
Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

BIND-OFF TIP:
To avoid a tight bind-off edge you may use a needle ½ size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

SCARF:
Worked in the round in a square on double pointed needles/circular needle, begin from the middle of scarf. When square is done, the width of scarf is done and bind off in 2 of the sides. Then work back and forth out to each of the 2 other sides.

Cast on 12 stitches on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with 1 strand Lace and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). * Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, purl 1 *, work from *-* 4 times in total on round (on next round work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes) = 16 stitches. Work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 4 times in total on round - read PATTERN above. Switch to circular needle when needed. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When entire diagram A.1 has been worked, there are 128 stitches on round.
Insert 4 markers without working as follows: Insert first marker at beginning of round, insert second marker after 32 stitches, insert third marker after 32 stitches and insert 4th marker after 32 stitches, move markers upwards when working.
Now work pattern as follows: Work * A.2 (= 2 stitches), A.3 over the next 28 stitches (= 2 repetitions of 14 stitches) and A.4 (= 2 stitches) *, work from *-* 4 times in total on round. When A.2/A.3/A.4 are done vertically, there are 60 stitches between each marker (= 240 stitches on round).
Now work pattern as follows: Work * A.2 (= 2 stitches), A.3 over the next 56 stitches (= 4 repetitions of 14 stitches) and A.4 (= 2 stitches) *, work from *-* 4 times in total on round. When A.2/A.3/A.4 are done vertically, there are 88 stitches between each marker (= 352 stitches on round).
Now work pattern as follows: Work * A.2 (= 2 stitches), A.3 over the next 84 stitches (= 6 repetitions of 14 stitches) and A.4 (= 2 stitches) *, work from *-* 4 times in total on round. Continue this pattern to and with 12th round (= round with arrow in diagrams). There are now 102 stitches between each marker (= 408 stitches on round).
Then work pattern as follows: Work * A.5 (= 9 stitches), A.6 over the next 84 stitches (= 6 repetitions of 14 stitches), A.7 (= 9 stitches), marker, continue on 13th round in A.2/A.3/A.4 until next marker *, work from *-* 2 times in total. Continue this pattern until 2 rounds remain in diagrams. Work next round in pattern but skip the first 2 yarn overs in A.2 and skip last yarn over in A.4 (see star in diagrams).
Work last round in pattern as follows: NOTE! Skip the first 2 squares in A.2 and skip last square in A.4 - work from first to second marker and slip the 113 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= part-1), work until third marker and slip the 113 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= side), work until fourth marker and slip the 113 stitches on 1 stitch holder (= part- 2), work until first marker = 113 stitches on needle (= side). Work rib (= knit 1/purl 1) with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side over these stitches for 1½ cm / ½''. Loosely bind off - read BIND-OFF TIP above. Slip the 113 stitches from the other side (= from second to third marker) on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. Begin from wrong side and work rib (= knit 1/purl 1) with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side over these stitches for 1½ cm / ½''. Loosely bind off. Square measures approx. 50 cm / 19 3/4'' in width and 47 cm / 18½'' vertically.

PART-1:
Work piece back and forth on circular needle.
Slip the 113 stitches from part-1 on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and insert 1 marker - NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Beginning from right side and work as follows: Pick up 4 stitches at the edge of ridges on the side, work A.8 (= 14 stitches), work A.3 over the next 84 stitches (= 6 repetitions of 14 stitches), work A.9 (= 15 stitches) and pick up 4 stitches in the side of ridges on the side = 121 stitches. Continue the 4 stitches in each side in garter stitch. Continue this pattern until piece measures approx. 47 cm / 18½'', adjust after one whole repetition vertically.
Now work pattern as follows from right side: Work 4 stitches in garter stitch, A.10 (= 14 stitches), A.11 over the next 84 stitches (= 6 repetitions of 14 stitches), A.12 (= 15 stitches) and 4 stitches in garter stitch. When diagram is done vertically, work 2 ridges and loosely bind off. Piece measures approx. 52 cm / 20½''.

PART-2:
Work as part-1. I.e. slip the 113 stitches from part-2 on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and insert 1 marker. Begin by picking up stitches in the side of ridges and work pattern as on part-1.

----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Work hat in the round in a square on double pointed needles/a short circular needle, top down.
Cast on 12 stitches on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with 1 strand Lace and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). * Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, purl 1 *, work from *-* 4 times in total on round (on next round work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes) = 16 stitches. Work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 4 times in total on round - read PATTERN above. Switch to circular needle when needed. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When entire diagrams A.1 has been worked, there are 128 stitches on round. Now work pattern as follows: Work * A.13 (= 3 stitches), A.14 (= 14 stitches) and A.15 (= 15 stitches) *, work from *-* 4 times in total on round. When diagrams have been worked vertically, there are 168 stitches on needle. Then work pattern as follows: Work A.14 over all stitches (= 12 repetitions of 14 stitches). Work diagram 1 time vertically. Knit 1 round while at the same time decreasing 46 stitches evenly = 122 stitches. Work in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above, for 3 cm / 1'' and loosely bind off - read BIND-OFF TIP above. Piece measures approx. 24 cm / 9½''.

= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked
= purl 2 together
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over stitches worked together
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= this refers to the last 2 round in pattern
