EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN (applies to pants):
See diagram A.1.

DECREASE TIP (applies to inside of legs):
Begin 3 stitches before marker and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker is between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.

INCREASE TIP (applies to pants):
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next round work yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

TROUSERS - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round on circular needles/double pointed needles, top down.


Cast on (84) 96-104-116-124 (136-144) stitches on circular needle size 3 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round = knit 1/ purl 1. When rib measures 2½ cm, work a round with eyelet holes for tie as follows: * Knit 1, purl 1, make 1 yarn over, purl 2 together *, work from *-* the entire round (= (21) 24-26-29-31 (34-36) holes on round). Then continue rib = knit 1/purl 1 until piece measures 5 cm from cast-on edge. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm and work an elevation at the back of pants as explained below.

ELEVATION AT THE BACK:
To get a better fit work the pants higher at the back than at the front. This is done by working short rows back and forth as follows: Insert 1 marker at beginning of round = mid back. Work from right side and knit 10 past marker, turn, tighten yarn and purl 20 stitches back. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 30, turn, tighten yarn and purl 40. Turn, tighten yarn and knit 50, turn, tighten yarn and purl 60. Continue this way until (60) 60-80-80-100 (100-100) stitches have been purled. Turn piece, tighten yarn and knit until mid back.

TROUSERS:
Now work A.1 in the round over all stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When pants measures (15) 17-18-21-22 (23-24) cm from cast-on edge mid front, work next round as follows: Cast off 4 stitches (= mid back), knit (34) 40-44-50-54 (60-64) stitches, cast off 8 stitches mid front, knit (34) 40-44-50-54 (60-64) stitches and cast off the remaining 4 stitches mid back. Cut the yarn. Slip stitches in one side of piece on 1 stitch holder and work leg as explained below. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!

LEG:
= (34) 40-44-50-54 (60-64) stitches. Distribute the stitches on double pointed needles size 4 mm and continue A.1 in the round. Knit the stitches that do not fit A.1. When piece measures 2 cm from division, decrease 2 stitches on inside of leg - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every (1½) 1½-1½-1½-2 (2½-3½) cm (4) 6-7-8-8 (8-8) times in total = (26) 28-30-34-38 (44-48) stitches. Continue to work until leg measures (7) 9-12-15-19 (23-29) cm. Knit 1 round while increasing (6) 6-8-6-8 (8-10) stitches evenly (increase after every 5th stitch) – read INCREASE TIP = (32) 34-38-40-46 (52-58) stitches. Switch to double pointed needles size 3 mm and work rib in the round = knit 1/purl 1 for 6 cm (or desired measurements). Loosely cast off stitches with knit over knit and purl over purl. Work the other leg the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew tog the opening between the legs.

TWINED STRING FOR TIE:
Cut 2 lengths of approx. 3 metres each. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Thread tie up and down through eyelet row in pants, begin mid front and tie a bow.


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

BEGIN PIECE FOR HAT HERE:

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

HAT:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles from mid front.
Cast on (60) 66-72-78-84 (90-96) stitches on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Knit 1 round. Then work 4 rounds rib = knit 1/purl 1. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm. Knit 1 round. Insert 1 marker at beginning of round = mid back. Then work as follows:
ROUND 1: * Knit 1, make 1 yarn over, knit (8) 9-10-11-12 (13-14) stitches, slip 2 stitches knitwise, knit 1 and pass the 2 slipped stitches over stitch worked, knit (8) 9-10-11-12 (13-14) stitches, make 1 yarn over *, work from *-* 3 times in total.
ROUND 2: Knit all stitches.
Repeat round 1 and 2 until piece measures 7 cm in all sizes.
Then work the same way but without increases. I.e. continue decreases the same way until no stitches remain between decreases. On next round knit all stitches together 2 by 2. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Hat measures approx. (14) 14-15-16-17 (17-18) cm measured form one of the bottom tips.

TIE RIBBON:
Work back and forth with 2 double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Pick up 4 stitches in the tip on one side of hat (a tip to cover the ear).
Knit 4 stitches, * do not turn piece, but push stitches over to the other side of needle, place the thread behind the 4 stitches, tighten yarn and knit the 4 stitches from the right side again *, work from *-* until tie measures approx. (14)16-18-20-22 (24-26) cm, cast off and fasten the yarn. Work the other tie the same way in the tip on the opposite side of hat.

POMPOM:
Make 2 pompoms with an approx. diameter of 3 cm. Fasten them at the top of hat.

Jos langan extra fine korvaa merino babyllä, miten silmukkamäärään vaikuttaa?
