EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN: 
Head band: See diagram A.1.

Wrist warmers: See diagrams A.12 and A.13.
Because you increase and decrease in diagrams A.1b, A.3b, A.4b, A.6b, A.7b, A.12 and A.13, the number of stitches can vary in relation to this, if you have just decreased.

Because you increase and decrease in diagrams A.1b, A.3b, A.4b, A.6b, A.7b, A.12 and A.13, the number of stitches can vary in relation to this, if you have just decreased - PLEASE EXPLAIN. THANKS

Hi Oksana, This sentence is a bit confusing, I agree. It just means that the number of stitches stated could be affected by which row you are on in the diagrams, especially after a row of decreases. I hope this helps and happy knitting!
