This one is worked in vintage 3ply so try modern 4ply for size stated, no chest size for this one, but there is a tension of 6 stitches to an inch on size 9 imperial needles (3.75mm) you could use smaller or lager needles for different sizes (don’t forget to allow more wool and inches in length for larger sizes) Colours suggested in pattern are again the fawn ground with green, yellow, blue, orange, dark blue, red. This one also is knitted in 4 needles. You can easily use two needles by dividing the stitches between the back and fronts. Using 4 needles or a circular one for the scarf will mean no seam, but can easily be knitted straight ad then seamed just cast on the same amount of stitches but on two needles instead, the same with the beret and join seam when finished. This applies to the above pattern as well.
