Chest measures (flat)

Cast on 76 s on a small circular needle US9 with one strand of each yarn quality, Main Colours, held together. The whole piece is knitted with double strands. Knit ribbing, K1, p1 for 2.5 inches. Continue in stockinette. Make 8 new stitches while knitting the first round of stockinette (evenly distributed). PM on the beginning of the round and after 42 s to mark the sides of the sweater. Continue until your piece measures 10 inches. On the next round bind off 4 stitches under each arm (2 before and 2 after each marker) (= 76 s on the needle). Put aside while knitting the arms.
Cast on 20 s on DPN US9 with one strand of each yarn quality, Main Colours. Knit ribbing, K1, p1 for 2 inches. Continue in stockinette. Make 6 new stitches while knitting the first round of stockinette (evenly distributed). (= 26 s) Continue until the arm measures 9.5 inches. Bind off 4 stitches under the arm. (= 22 s) Knit another arm.
Line up all the parts on the circular needle, make sure that the bind off edges are aligned. You now have 120 s on the needle. K 1 round with the main colour. Knit heart pattern until you have 3 rows of hearts. K 1 round. On the next round decrease half of the stitches by doing *k2tog* all round. (= 60 s) Knit ribbing, k1 p1 for 7 inches. Bind off.
Cast on 54 s on a small circular needle US9 with one strand of each yarn quality, Main Colours, held together. Knit ribbing, k1 p1 for 5.5 inches. Continue in stockinette. Make 6 new stitches while knitting the first round of stockinette (evenly distributed). (= 60 s) Continue until the hat measures 8.5 inches. Decrease by knitting the following two rounds:
Round 1: *K4, k2tog. * Repeat until end of round.
Round 2: Knit.
Repeat with one stitch less before the decreases for each round (next round is k3, k2tog, and so on..) until you are knitting 2 together all round. Pull the yarn through the remaining stitches and sew. Make a pom pom in the contrast yarns and assemble.
Cast on 18 s on US9 DPN´s with one strand each of the yarn qualities, Contrast colour, held together. Knit ribbing, k1 p1 for 2.5 inches. Then knit the following 3 rounds:
*Knit 2 rounds. On the next round make 1 s on each side of the first stitch on the round, Knit the rest of the round* (= 2 new stitches)
Repeat between * and * 2 times. (= 22 s).
Knit 2 rounds, but stop right before you get to the new stitches you have made. Place all the new stitches and the middle stitch on a spare needle or safety pin. (Alltogether 5 s on the pin)
Make 1 new stitch in the gap by making a backwards loop on the right needle and continue knitting the hand until it measures 2 inches from where you divided for thumb. Distribute your stitches on to 2 double pointed needles, (needle #1 and needle #2) with the same amount of stitches on each of the two. The round starts with the new stitch you made in the gap.
*K1, k2tog. Knit until 2 stitches are left on needle #1. Slip the two stitches knitwise and put them back on the left needle. Knit them together through back loops. Repeat for needle #2. Knit 1 round*
Repeat the two rounds until you have 6 stitches left. Pull the yarn through the remaining stitches and sew.
Start by picking up 1 new stitch in the gap, behind the other stitches, so that the new stich becomes the last stitch on the needle. Knit the thumb in the round until it measures 1.2 inches. On the next round *K2tog* all round. Assemble and weave in all ends.
