EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
Hat: See diagram A.1.
Mittens: See diagrams A.1 and A.2.
Work the entire pattern in stockinette stitch.

DECREASE TIP-1 (applies to top of hat):
Work until 2 stitches remain before marker, knit these 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased).

DECREASE TIP-2 (applies to top of mittens):
Begin 3 stitches before marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased at marker thread).

DECREASE TIP-3 (applies to thumbs):
Begin 2 stitches before marker thread, knit 2 together, marker thread, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased).

KNITTING TIP-1:
To avoid the knitting gauge to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Use a larger needle size when working pattern if needed.

KNITTING TIP-2 (applies to mittens):
If you want a mitten with a larger circumference the mittens can be worked on half a size or one size larger needle. Half a needle size larger will be 1 cm = 3/8” more in circumference and a one needle size larger will be 2 cm = 3/4” more in circumference.


KNITTING TIP-3 (applies to mittens):
Length before thumb opening begins can be adjusted by working more or less rounds before working marking for thumb opening.

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

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 108-112 stitches on a short circular needle size 3 mm = US 2,5 with wine red. Knit 1 round. Then work rib in the round (= knit 2/purl 2) for 4 cm = 1 1/2”. Switch to a short circular needle size 3.5 mm = US 4. Read KNITTING TIP-1 and work A.1 in the round (= 27-28 repetitions of 4 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Work until piece measures approx. 20 cm = 8” in both sizes but adjust so that next round is a unicolored round straight before or after a round with dots.
Insert 6-7 markers in piece 18-16 stitches between every marker. On next round decrease 1 stitch before every marker - read DECREASE TIP-1= 6-7 stitches decreased. Decrease like this every other round 4-6 times in total and then every round 5-4 times in total = 54-42 stitches remain. Knit 3 rounds in stockinette stitch with the color of the last stripe where all stitches are knitted together 2 by 2 on all three rounds = 7-6 stitches remain. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Piece measures approx. 25-26 cm = 9 3/4”-10 1/4” from top and down.

ASSEMBLY:
Make a pompom with wine red and off white with an approx. diameter of 6 cm = 2 3/8” and fasten it at the top of the hat.

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

MITTENS - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work piece in the round on double pointed needles, bottom up. Mittens have the same circumference in both sizes but different length. Circumference can be adjusted - read KNITTING TIP-2!

LEFT MITTEN:
Cast on 48-48 stitches on double pointed needles size 3 mm = US 2,5 with wine red. Work 8 rounds in stockinette stitch for folding edge.
Purl 1 round (= folding edge). Measure piece from folding edge!
Work 8 rounds in stockinette stitch with wine red. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Read KNITTING TIP-1 and work A.1 in the round (= 12 repetitions of 4 stitches). Repeat A.1 vertically.
When piece measures approx. 11 cm = 4 3/8” from folding edge (adjust so that next round is a unicolored round with wine red), work a marking for thumb opening as follows - read KNITTING TIP-3: Work 14 stitches in stockinette stitch with wine red, work 8 stitches in stockinette stitch for thumb opening in a different color that stands out from the rest of piece, then work the remaining 26 stitches in stockinette stitch with wine red. Continue pattern as before over all stitches until mitten measures approx. 21-23 cm = 8 1/4”-9” from folding edge. Approx. 3 cm = 1 1/8” remain until finished measurements, try the mitten on and work until desired length - NOTE: Finish after a whole stripe with off white and work with wine red (without dots) until correct measurements.
Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round and 1 marker thread after 24 stitches.
Work in stockinette stitch in the round with wine red. AT THE SAME TIME on first round decrease on each side of the 2 marker threads - read DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches decreased).
Decrease like this on every round 11 times in total in both sizes = 4 stitches remain. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Mitten measures approx. 24-26 cm = 9 1/2”-10 1/4” from top and down to folding edge.

THUMB:
Pull out the thread that was worked over the 8 stitches for thumb opening. Pick up 8 stitches on each side of thumb opening with wine red = 16 stitches. Distribute these 16 stitches on double pointed needles size 3 mm = US 2,5. Work in stockinette stitch in the round with wine red.
When thumb measures approx. 5 -5½ cm = 2”-2 1/8”, insert 1 marker thread in each side of thumb. Approx. 1 cm = 3/8” remains until finished measurements on thumb, try the mitten on and work until desired length.
On next round decrease on each side of both marker threads – read DECREASE TIP-3 (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease like this every round 3 times in total = 4 stitches remain. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Thumb measures approx. 6 -6½ cm = 2 3/8”-2 1/2” from top and down.

RIGHT MITTEN:
Cast on 48-48 stitches on double pointed needles size 3 mm = US 2,5 with wine red. Work 8 rounds in stockinette stitch for folding edge.
Purl 1 round (= folding edge). Work 8 rounds in stockinette stitch with wine red.
Remember KNITTING TIP-1 and work A.2 in the round (= 12 repetitions of 4 stitches). Repeat A.2 vertically.
When piece measures approx. 11 cm = 4 3/8” from folding edge (adjust length according to left mitten), work a marking for thumb opening as follows: Work 26 stitches in stockinette stitch with wine red, work 8 stitches in stockinette stitch for thumb opening in a different color, then work the remaining 14 stitches in stockinette stitch with wine red. Continue pattern as before over all stitches until mitten measures approx. 21-23 cm = 8 1/4”-9” from folding edge (adjust length according to left mitten).
Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round and 1 marker thread after 24 stitches.
Work in stockinette stitch in the round with wine red. AT THE SAME TIME on first round decrease on each side of the 2 marker threads - read DECREASE TIP-2 (= 4 stitches decreased).
