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

See diagrams A.1-A.7. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 296-334-372 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Alpaca. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work as follows from RS: 1 edge st in garter st, A.1 (= 6 sts), A.2 (= 19 sts) 15-17-19 times in width in total, A.3 (= 3 sts), 1 edge st in garter st. Continue with this pattern back and forth until A.1, A.2 and A.3 have been worked 2-2-3 times vertically. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Then continue the pattern the same way but now work A.4 instead of A.2 and the other sts as before. When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, 4 sts have been dec in every repetition (i.e. 60-68-76 sts dec in total on row) = 236-266-296 sts remain.
Then work pattern as before but now work A.5 (= 15 sts) instead of A.4. Continue until A.5 has been worked 1-2-3 times vertically. Then work pattern as before but now work A.6 (= 15 sts) instead of A.5. When A.6 has been worked 1-1-1 time vertically, 2 sts have been dec in every repetition (i.e. 30-34-38 sts dec in total on row) = 206-232-258 sts remain.
Then work pattern as before but now work A.7 (= 13 sts) instead of A.6. Continue until neck warmer measures 41-45-49 cm / 16"-17 3/4"-19 1/4", work 2 ridges over all sts on row. K 1 row from RS, and loosely bind off from WS.

Sew neck warmer tog mid back inside 1 edge st in garter st. Cut and fasten the yarn.
