START THE PIECE HERE:

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

NECK WARMER – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle and is sewn together to finish.

NECK WARMER:
Cast on 180-192-204 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm and with 2 strands of black.
Work rib (knit 2, purl 2) for 4 cm.
Remove one of the strands and continue working with just 1 strand. Knit the next row, decreasing at the same time 8-10-12 stitches evenly spaced = 172-182-192 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Then work according to diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3; the first row is from the right side: Work diagram A.1 over 1 stitch, repeat A.2 until there is 1 stitch left on the row and work A.3 over 1 stitch.
Continue working the diagrams like this; repeat A.x in height. Work until the piece measures approx. 23-25-27 cm from the cast-on edge – adjust so the next row is worked with black. Continue with black and knit 1 row from the right side where you increase 4-6-4 stitches evenly spaced = 176-188-196 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side. Add 1 more strand of black, continuing with 2 strands of black, and work rib (knit 2 / purl 2) for 3 cm. Loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

ASSEMBLY:
Using 1 strand of black, lay the sides together edge to edge and sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch.

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

HAT – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle and sewn together to finish.

HAT:
Cast on 132-136-140 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm and 2 strands of black. Work rib (knit 2 / purl 2) for 10 cm (the rib will be folded in half when finished). Remove one of the strands and continue with just 1 strand. Knit the next row and at the same time decrease 5-4-3 stitches evenly spaced = 127-132-137 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side.
Then work according to diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3 with the first row from the right side as follows: Work diagram A.1 over 1 stitch, repeat A.2 until there is 1 stitch left on the row and work A.3 over 1 stitch.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Continue working the diagrams like this; repeat A.x in height. Work until the piece measures a total of 25-26-27 cm (there is approx. 3.5 - 4 cm left to finished length).
Now decrease for the top of the hat; make sure the pattern fits.
