GARTER ST (back and forth on circular needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.
Because of the texture on the garment all length measurements must be done when the piece is held up to get the correct length measurements.
The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts. Worked sideways in one piece.
Loosely cast on 132-136-140-148-152-160 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Alpaca Bouclé.
Work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 with 1 edge st in GARTER ST – see explanation above, in each side until piece measures approx. 60-61-62-62-63-64 cm / 23½"-24"-24½"-24½"-24 3/4"-25 1/4" – stop after a row from RS.
Switch to 1 strand Alpaca Bouclé. On next row (= WS), bind off the first 66-68-70-74-76-80 sts at beg of row (= left front piece), K the rest of row.
Insert 1 marker and work pattern according to diagram A.2 (choose diagram for your size) with 1 edge st in garter st in each side.
When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, piece measures approx. 10-10-10-12-12-12 cm / 4"-4"-4"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-4 3/4" from marker and approx. 70-71-72-74-75-76 cm / 27½"-28"-28½"-29"-29½"-30" from cast on edge.
