EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge vertically = knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
Hat: See diagram A.1.
Scarf: See diagram A.2.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase/decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 43 stitches), minus edge stitches (e.g. 6 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of increases/decreases to be done (e.g. 7) = 5.3.
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 5th stitch. Do not increase over edge stitches. On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
If decreasing knit approx. every 4th and 5th stitch together.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

HAT - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round on a short circular needle, bottom up. Switch to double pointed needles when needed.

HAT:
Cast on 56-60 stitches on a short circular needle size 8 mm = US 11 with Eskimo. Work rib in the round = knit 1/purl 1 for 6 cm = 2 3/8”. Then work A.1 in the round (= 14-15 repetitions of 4 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE
When piece measures 24-25 cm = 9 1/2”-9 3/4” from cast-on edge, begin decrease and decrease as below. AT THE SAME TIME knit English rib stitches on every round.
On the first decrease round, decrease all 3 purl stitches to 2 purl stitches by purling 2 stitches together in every purl section = 42-45 stitches. Work 1 round with knit over knit and purl over purl. On next round decrease all 2 purl to 1 purl = 28-30 stitches. Work 2 rounds with knit over knit and purl over purl. Then knit 2 rounds where all stitches are knitted together 2 by 2 on both rounds = 7-8 stitches remain.
Cut the yarn. Pull yarn through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten. Piece measures approx. 29-30 cm = 11 3/8”-11 3/4” from top and down. Fold the bottom 6 cm = 2 3/8” of hat.

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

SCARF - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work piece back and forth on circular needle.

SCARF:
Cast on 43 stitches on needle size 10 mm = US 15 with Eskimo. Purl 1 row (= wrong side).
Work next row as follows from right side: Work 3 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above - * knit 1, purl 1 *, work from *-* until 4 stitches remain, knit 1 and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib to work 3 rows in total in rib. Purl 1 row from wrong side (work edge stitches in garter stitch) - AT THE SAME TIME increase 7 stitches evenly - read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 50 stitches.
Then work A.2 back and forth over all 50 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Work until scarf measures approx. 167 cm = 65 5/8” but finish after approx. 3 or 5 rows after a cable (last row is worked from wrong side).
Knit 1 row from right side while decreasing 7 stitches evenly = 43 stitches.
Work next row as follows from wrong side: Work 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, * purl 1, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* until 4 stitches remain on needle, purl 1 and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue rib like this until 3 row rib have been worked in total. Loosely bind off with knit from right side. Scarf measures approx. 170 cm = 66 3/4”.
