GARTER ST (back and forth on circular needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

Work short rows as follows:
Row 1 = RS: K all sts, turn.
Row 2 = WS: K back.
Row 3 = RS: K all sts, turn.
Row 4 = WS: K back.
Row 5 = RS: K the first 43-54-64 sts, turn.
Row 6 = WS: K back.
Repeat rows 1 to 6.

Inc 1 st after 1 edge st by picking up yarn between 2 sts from previous row. K st twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.

Dec 1 st after 1 edge st by K 2 sts tog.

Worked back and forth on circular needle. Dec in one side of piece and inc in the other side so that the ridges are worked diagonally.

Cast on 75-89-102 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Big Delight.
K 1 row back = WS.
Insert a marker after the 43rd-54th-64th st on 1st row from RS = marker is for short rows.
Work in GARTER ST and SHORT ROWS - see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st at beg of every row from RS - READ INCREASE TIP, and dec 1 st at beg of every row from WS - READ DECREASE TIP.
The short rows will be displaced 3 sts from marker from last short row so that the short rows always go over the first 43-54-64 sts from RS.
Continue the same way until finished measurements (the no of sts will thus not vary). REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Loosely bind off when piece measures 60-76-92 cm / 23½”-30”-36” along the shorter side (not in knitting direction).
Sew tog cast-on edge and bind-off edge.
