EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
Head band: See diagrams A.1 and A.2.
Neck warmer: See diagrams A.3 and A.4.
Mittens: See diagrams A.5 to A.8.
The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP-1 (for neck warmer, evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 120 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 16) = 7.5. 
In this example, decrease by knitting together alternately each 6th and 7th stitch and each 7th and 8th stitch.

INCREASE TIP (for mittens; thumb gusset):
Work as far as the stitch with the marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= stitch with marker), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
The next increase is worked as follows: Work until there is 1 stitch left before the stitch with marker, make 1 yarn over, knit 3, 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). Continue to increase like this every 2nd round; i.e. you always increase on outside of increased stitches.

DECREASE TIP-2 (for top of mitten):
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread sits between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (= 2 stitches decreased).

START TO WORK HERE:

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

HEAD BAND - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth on needle and sewn together mid back to finish.

HEAD BAND:
Cast on 22-22 stitches with needle size 4.5 mm and Nepal.
Knit 4 rows and increase at the same time 4 stitches evenly on the 3rd row = 26-26 stitches.
Work A.1 (= 26 stitches). When A.1 has been completed repeat A.2 to finished length. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work until the piece measures approx. 47-51 cm, but it is neatest, if possible, to finish after row 2 in A.2. Knit 4 rows and decrease at the same time 4 stitches evenly on first row = 22-22 stitches. After the 4 knitted rows, cast off with knit from the right side.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the head band together mid back inside the cast-on and cast-off edges.

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

NECK WARMER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, bottom up.

NECK WARMER:
Cast on 192-216 stitches with circular needle size 5 mm and Nepal. Knit 1 round. Then work A.3A in the round (= 8-9 repeats of 24 stitches). When the piece measures 4 cm work A.3B in the round = 160-180 stitches on needle. Change to circular needle size 6 mm and work A.4 in the round (= 8-9 repeats of 20 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.4 has been completed there are 120-135 stitches on the needle. Continue working stocking stitch with the wrong side out.
When the piece measures 24-24 cm knit 1 round where you decrease 16-19 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 104-116 stitches.
Change to circular needle size 5 mm and work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 4 cm. Then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The neck warmer measures approx. 28-28 cm from the top down.

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

MITTENS - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, bottom up.

RIGHT MITTEN:
Cast on 38-38 stitches with double pointed needles size 3 mm and Nepal. Knit 1 round. Work rib as follows: * purl 2, knit 2 *, work from *-* a total of 5 times, work A.5A (= 16 stitches) and finish with knit 2 stitches. Continue this rib for 4-5 cm.
The next round is worked as follows: Knit 8 stitches, knit 2 together, knit 8, knit 2 together, work A.5b (= 16 stitches which decrease to 14 stitches) and finish with knit 2 stitches = 34-34 stitches on needle.
Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work the next round as follows: Work 18 stitches in stocking stitch (= inside of hand), A.6 (= 14 stitches) and finish with 2 stitches in stocking stitch. Continue this pattern, but when A.6 has been completed repeat A.7 onwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 11-12 cm insert 1 marker in the first stitch on the round. The marker marks where you will increase for the thumb gusset. On the next round increase on each side of the stitch with the marker – read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this on each side of the increased stitches every 2nd round a total of 5-6 times = 44-46 stitches. After the last increase, place the 11-13 thumb-stitches on 1 thread.
Continue in the round as before and cast on 1 new stitch over the thumb opening on the first round = 34-34 stitches.
When A.7 has been worked a total of 3 times in height, work A.8 = 32-32 stitches. Then continue in the round with stocking stitch over all stitches. Work until the piece measures 24½-26½ cm (there is now approx. 3½ cm to finished length – you can try the mitten on and work to desired length if necessary).
Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round and 1 marker thread after the next 16 stitches on the round. There are 16 stitches between the last and first marker thread.
The marker threads are used when decreasing on each side of the mitten. I.e. If A.8 has been completed, continue with stocking stitch in the round over all stitches. AT THE SAME TIME decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – read DECREASE TIP-2 = 4 stitches decreased. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 3 times and then every round a total of 3 times = 8 stitches left on needles. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, pull tight and fasten well. The mitten measures approx. 28-30 cm from the top down.

THUMB:
Place the 11-13 thumb-stitches from the thread back on double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit up 4-3 stitches behind the thumb = 15-16 stitches. Work stocking stitch in the round until the thumb measures approx. 4½-5 cm (there is now approx. ½ cm left to finished length – you can try the mitten on and work to desired length if necessary). Knit 2 rounds where all stitches are knitted together 2 and 2 on both rounds = 4-4 stitches left on needles. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, pull tight and fasten well.

LEFT MITTEN:
Cast on 38-38 stitches with double pointed needles size 3 mm and Nepal. Knit 1 round. Work rib as follows: Knit 2, A.5A (= 16 stitches), * knit 2, purl 2 *, work from *-* a total of 5 times. Continue this rib for 4-5 cm.
The next round is worked as follows: Knit 2 stitches, work A.5B (= 16 stitches which decrease to 14 stitches) knit 2 together, knit 8, knit 2 together and finish with knit 8 = 34-34 stitches on needle.
Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and work the next round as follows: Work 2 stitches in stocking stitch A.6 (= 14 stitches) and finish with 18 stitches in stocking stitch(= inside of hand),. Continue this pattern, but when A.6 has been completed repeat A.7 onwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 11-12 cm insert 1 marker in the last stitch on the round. The marker marks where you will increase for the thumb gusset. On the next round increase on each side of the stitch with the marker – remember INCREASE TIP. Increase like this on each side of the increased stitches every 2nd round a total of 5-6 times = 44-46 stitches. After the last increase place the 11-13 thumb-stitches on 1 thread.
Continue in the round as before and cast on 1 new stitch over the thumb opening on the first round = 34-34 stitches.
When A.7 has been worked a total of 3 times in height, work A.8 = 32-32 stitches. Then continue in the round with stocking stitch over all stitches. Work until the piece measures 24½-26½ cm (there is now approx. 3½ cm to finished length – you can try the mitten on and work to desired length if necessary).
Insert 1 marker thread at the beginning of the round and 1 marker thread after the next 16 stitches on the round. There are 16 stitches between the last and first marker thread.
The marker threads are used when decreasing on each side of the mitten. If A.8 has been completed, continue with stocking stitch in the round over all stitches. AT THE SAME TIME decrease 1 stitch on each side of both marker threads – remember DECREASE TIP-2 = 4 stitches decreased. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 3 times and then every round a total of 3 times = 8 stitches left on needles. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, pull tight and fasten well. The mitten measures approx. 28-30 cm from the top down.
Work thumb in the same way as on right mitten.
