EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
Hat: See diagrams A.1 to A.3.
Scarf: See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 64 stitches) and divide by number of decreases to be made (e.g. 10) = 6.4. 
In this example decrease by knitting alternately each 5th and 6th and each 6th and 7th stitch together.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

HAT – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with short circular needle, bottom up. Change to double pointed needles when necessary.

HAT:
Cast on 64-68 stitches with circular needle size 7 mm and Eskimo. Purl 1 round then work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 11 cm. Change to circular needle size 8 mm and knit 1 round where you decrease 10-12 stitches evenly spaced – read DECREASE TIP = 54-56 stitches. Work A.1 in the round for 13-14 cm – adjust so you finish after the last round in the diagram. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION. Now begin to decrease: Work 0-2 stitches of A.1 as before, * A.2 (= 11 stitches), A.3 (= 7 stitches) *, work from *-* a total of 3 times in width. When the diagrams have been completed there are 18-20 stitches left on the round. Knit 1 round where all stitches are knitted together 2 and 2 = 9-10 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The hat measures approx. 32-33 cm (approx. 25-26 cm with 7 cm fold).

POM-POM:
Make a large, loose pom-pom of approx. 12 cm in diameter with 6 strands curry and 1 strand navy blue. Sew the pom-pom to the top of the hat.

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

SCARF – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle.

SCARF:
Cast on 32 stitches with circular needle size 9 mm and Eskimo. Purl 1 row then work pattern A.1 back and forth. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 164 cm, cast off – make sure the cast-off edge is not tight.

FRINGES:
Make 11 fringes for each end of the scarf. The scarf in the picture has 7 fringes with curry and 4 fringes with 1 strand of each colour. To allow the fringes to hang neatly, dampen them, shake them and allow them to dry.
1 FRINGE: Cut 2 strands Eskimo each 36 cm long. Fold them double, thread the loop from the right side through the outermost stitch on the cast-off edge. Then pull the strand-ends through the loop and tighten carefully. Make 10 more fringes in the same way and fasten evenly along the cast-off edge. Repeat along the cast-on edge.
