EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
Hat: See diagrams A.1 to A.12.
Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.12).
Neck warmer: See diagrams A.13 to A.16.

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

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced - for neck warmer):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 43 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 8) = 5.4. 
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately each 5th and 6th stitch (approx.). On the next round work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

HAT - QUICK SUMMARY OF THE WORK:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, bottom up. Change to double pointed needles when necessary.

HAT:
Cast on 107-113 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Nepal. Knit 1 round.
Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round. Work rib as follows: A.1 (= 13 stitches), A.2 (= 26 stitches), A.3 (= 14 stitches), A.4 over the last 54-60 stitches (= 18-20 repeats of 3 stitches). Continue the rib like this for 4 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Change to circular needle size 5 mm and work A.5 (= 13 stitches) over A.1, A.6 (= 26 stitches) over A.2 – start A.6 on the round marked for your size, A.7 (= 14 stitches) over A.3 and A.8 over A.4 (= 18-20 repeats of 3 stitches). Continue this pattern. When A.6 has been completed in height, repeat the whole of A.6 one more time in height in both sizes; the remaining stitches are worked as before. Continue until A.6 is finished in height. The piece measures approx. 21-22 cm.
Now decrease in the pattern, i.e. work as follows: Work A.9 (= 13 stitches) over A.5, A.10 (= 26 stitches) over A.6, A.11 (= 14 stitches) over A.7 and A.12 (= 6-5 repeats of 9-12 stitches) over A.8. Continue this pattern. When diagrams A.9 to A.12 have been completed there are 27-30 stitches on the last round.
On the next round knit 1-0, then knit the remaining stitches together 2 and 2 = 14-15 stitches. Knit 0-1, then knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 7-8 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The hat measures approx. 27-28 cm in height.

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

NECK WARMER - SHORT SUMMARY OF THE WORK:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle in 2 sections, bottom up to end of split. Then the sections are put together and you continue working in the round with circular needle.

NECK WARMER:
Cast on 43-48 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Nepal. Work 3 RIDGES – read description above. Change to circular needle size 5 mm and knit 1 row where you increase 8-9 stitches evenly on row – read INCREASE TIP = 51-57 stitches. Then work as follows – from the right side: A.13 (= 6 stitches), repeat A.14 until there are 6 stitches left (= 13-15 repeats of 3 stitches) and A.15 (= 6 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue this pattern until the piece measures 15-17 cm. Now the split is finished. Lay the piece to one side and work another section in the same way – adjust so that you finish on the same row in the pattern.
Place the 2 sections on the same circular needle = 102-114 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round. Then working in the round, work A.14 over all stitches (= 34-38 repeats of 3 stitches) – continue on the correct round in the pattern. Continue this pattern until the piece measures approx. 23-27 cm – adjust to after a round of stocking stitch. Then work A.16 over all stitches (= 34-38 repeats of 3 stitches). Continue this pattern for 3 cm, then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Diagram

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= purl from right side, knit from wrong side
= place 1 stitch on cable needle in front of piece, knit 1, knit 1 from cable needle
= place 1 stitch on cable needle behind piece, knit 1, purl 1 from cable needle
= place 1 stitch on cable needle in front of piece, purl 1, knit 1 from cable needle
= place 2 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= place 2 stitches on cable needle behind piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next round knit the yarn over to leave a hole
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitches
= this square has no stitch because it was decreased earlier; go straight to the next symbol in the diagram.
= purl 2 together
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

Lo schema del motivo centrale (26 maglie), una volta eseguito non rispecchia quello del modello. Volevo capire se lo schema va eseguito da sinistra a destra su tutti i ferri. Grazie.

Dear Drops Design Team, I would like to know if the knitting tension of 17 stitches in width and 22 rows in height with stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm is meant to be achieved with the larger or the smaller needle requested. That is to say...if my gauge is 10x10 with 4mm needles, do I have to switch to a smaller size for the ribbing or to increase of a size in the whole piece? Thank you very much for your kind attention Regards Chiara

Dear Chiara, the gauge indicated is to be reached with larger needles. If you get that gauge, you have to swtich to smaller needles for the rib. Happy knitting!
