INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next row work yarn overs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of stitch instead front) to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

SCARF:
Work piece back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 35 stitches on circular needle size 9 mm / US 13. Work A.1 over the first 30 stitches, finish row with the first 5 stitches in A.1. Continue this pattern until piece measures 150 cm / 59''. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! bind off.

FRINGES:
Cut 6 lengths of yarn of 50 cm / 19 3/4'' (= 1 fringe). Place them double, thread loop from right side between each stitch in false English rib at the bottom of scarf. Then pull yarn ends through loops and tighten. Fasten a fringe in outermost stitch in each side = 7 fringes. Repeat on the other side of scarf.
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
Work in the round on a short circular needle. Switch to double pointed needles when needed.
Cast on 54-60 stitches on a short circular needle size 8 mm / US 11. Work rib (= purl 1/knit 1) the entire round. Continue with rib until piece measures 14 cm / 5½''. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Then work according to A.1 (= 9-10 repetitions on round). Continue with A.1 until piece measures 27-28 cm / 10½"-11''. Now work rib (= purl 1/knit 1) over all stitches. When piece measures 29-30 cm / 11½"-11 3/4'', knit all stitches together 2 by 2 = 27-30 stitches. Knit 1 round, then knit all stitches together 2 by 2 = 14-15 stitches. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Hat measures approx. 32-33 cm / 12½"-13'' in total.
----------------------------------------------------------

MITTENS:
LEFT MITTEN:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 28-32 stitches on double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 with Eskimo. * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Continue with rib for 6 cm / 2 3/8''. Then work A.2 over all stitches (= 7-8 repetitions in width). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 12-13 cm / 4 3/4"-5'', increase 1 stitch on each side of first stitch on round for thumb gusset - READ INCREASE TIP! Increase on each side of the increased stitches on every round 4-5 times in total (work the increased stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above) = 36-42 stitches. Then slip the 9-11 thumb stitches on 1 stitch holder. Cast on 1 new stitch behind stitches on stitch holder = 28-32 stitches. Continue with A.2 until piece measures approx. 22-24 cm / 8 3/4"-9½'', adjust so that the next round is a knit round. Knit the first 2 stitches in every repetition of A.2 together = 21-24 stitches. Work 3 rounds, on next round knit the last 2 stitches in every repetition together = 14-16 stitches. Work 3 rounds, on next round knit all stitches together 2 by 2 = 7-8 stitches remain. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten.

THUMB:
Slip the 9-11 stitches from stitch holder on double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and pick in addition up 2 new stitches behind stitches = 11-13 stitches distributed on double pointed needles. Continue in the round in garter stitch until thumb measures approx. 5-6 cm / 2''-2 3/8'' (measured from where stitches were put back on double pointed needles). On next round knit all stitches together 2 by 2 = 6-7 stitches remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten.

RIGHT MITTEN:
Work as left mitten.
