Pattern instructions

EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN: 
Hat: See diagram A.1.
Mittens: See diagrams A.2 and A.3.
As you decrease and increase in diagrams A.1b, A.2b and A.3b, the number of stitches can vary in relation to this by 1 stitch, if you have just decreased.

DECREASE TIP-1 – for hat:
All decreases are made from the right side!
Decrease 1 stitch after the marker thread as follows: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.
Decrease 1 stitch before the marker thread as follows: Knit 2 together.

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round) – for mittens:
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

INCREASE TIP – for mittens:
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over; on the next round work the yarn over twisted to avoid holes. The increased stitch is then worked in garter stitch.

HAT - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth and is sewn together to finish.

HAT:
Cast on 114-120 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side of the piece) with circular needle size 3 mm and Sky. Work 3 RIDGES – read description above.
Then work as follows from the right side: Work 39-42 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 (= 36 stitches) and 39-42 stitches in garter stitch.
When A.1a has been worked 1 time in height there are 119-125 stitches on the needle. A.1b (= 41 stitches) is then worked over A.1a. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Continue this pattern until the piece measures 21 cm in height (the different patterns are worked over different rows in height).
Insert 6 marker threads in the garter stitches in each side of A.1b as follows:
Work 3-6 stitches in garter stitch, insert 1 marker thread, * 12 stitches in garter stitch, insert 1 marker thread *, work from *-* a total of 2 times, work 12 stitches in garter stitch, work A.1b as before, work 12 stitches in garter stitch, * insert 1 marker thread, work 12 stitches in garter stitch *, work from *-* a total of 2 times, insert 1 marker thread, work 3-6 stitches in garter stitch (= a total of 6 marker threads).
Then decrease 1 stitch after the first 3 marker threads and 1 stitch before the last 3 marker threads - read DECREASE TIP-1.
Decrease like this every 4th row a total of 4-5 times, then work A.1c over A.1b and continue decreasing by each marker thread every 2nd row 6 more times = 25 stitches. Then work all stitches together 2 and 2 = 13 stitches.
Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The hat measures approx. 26-27 cm from the top down.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the hat together inside the 1 edge stitch in each side of the piece.
-------------------------------------------------------

MITTENS- SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The mittens are worked in the round with double pointed needles.

LEFT MITTEN:
Cast on 44-47 stitches with double pointed needles size 3 mm and Sky. Work 3 RIDGES – read description above. Work 1 stitch in garter stitch, A.2a (= 24 stitches) and 19-22 stitches in garter stitch. When A.2a has been worked 1 time in height there are 49-52 stitches on the needles. Then work A.2b over A.2a.
When the piece measures 10 cm, increase 4 stitches evenly over the garter stitches = 53-56 stitches
The increased stitches are worked in garter stitch.
Continue this pattern in height (the different patterns are worked over different rounds in height). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the piece measures 12-13 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the first stitch on the round for thumb - read INCREASE TIP.
Increase like this on each side of the increased stitches every 2nd round a total of 6-7 times = 65-70 stitches. Now place the 13-15 thumb-stitches on 1 thread. Continue in the round as before and cast on 1 new stitch behind the thumb on the next round = 53-56 stitches. When the mitten measures approx. 25-27 cm (you can try the mitten on; there is 3 cm left to finished length), decrease as follows:
On the next row from the right side work A.2c over A.2b and decrease 3 stitches evenly over the garter stitches every 2nd round a total of 6 times = 12-15 stitches.
Work all stitches together 2 and 2 = 6-8 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The mitten measures a total of approx. 28-30 cm.

THUMB: 
Place the 13-15 stitches above the thumb gusset on double pointed needles size 3 mm and in addition pick up 3 stitches in the edge at the back of the thumb-stitches = 16-18 stitches. Work garter stitch in the round for 6-7 cm, then work all stitches together 2 and 2 = 8-9 stitches. . Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.

RIGHT MITTEN:
Work as for left, but reversed; in other words, work A.3 instead of A.2 and increase to thumb on each side of the first garter stitch after A.3.
