SHORT ROWS:
Work 1 row over the first 16 sts, turn and work back. Work 1 row over the first 15 sts, turn and work back.
Continue like this by working 1 st less every time until 2 rows have been worked only over the first st.
Then work 1 row over the first 2 sts, turn and work back, 1 row over the first 3 sts, turn and work back.
Continue like this by working 1 st more every time until 1 row has been worked over the first 16 sts, turn and work back.
1 repetition with short rows = 62 rows.
----------------------------------------------------------

BLANKET:
The whole blanket is worked in garter st, i.e. K all rows.
Cast on 17 sts on needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Verdi and work in garter st for 30 cm / 11 3/4''.
Then work 1 repetition with SHORT ROWS - see explanation above, K 2 rows over all sts and 1 more repetition with short rows.
* Then work 1 row over all sts (from RS), work next row as follows (from WS): Pick up the outermost st in outer loop from previous stripe, work first st from left needle, pass the new st over, work the rest of row *.
Repeat these two rows until 1 st has been picked up in every ridge (1 ridge = 2 K rows) along the entire side from previous stripe.
Work 1 repetition with short rows.
Then work 1 row over all sts (from RS), work next row as follows (from WS): Pick up the outermost st from cast on edge, work first st from left needle, pass the new st over, work the rest of row.
Repeat these 2 rows until 1 st has been picked up in every st along the entire side from cast on edge.
[Work 1 repetition with short rows, repeat from *-*].
Continue like this from [-] in the round - see chart = A.1 - until blanket measures approx. 110 x 127 cm / 43½" x 50" (or until the whole ball of yarn has been used), bind off.
