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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1, A.2, A.3 and A.4, diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.
The diagrams is divided into 3 parts. Since it dec and inc in different parts will the diagrams see inadequate out. But the number of sts at the end of each row will still be the same.


DECREASE TIP:
Dec inside 1 edge st in garter st. All dec are done from RS!
Dec before 1 edge st as follows: K 2 tog.
Dec after 1 edge st as follows: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

KNITTING TIP 1:
To make a nice finish on repetition, continue with diagram A.3 instead of A.2 (right front piece) and A.1 instead of A.2 (left front piece).

SHORT ROWS:
To make a better shape on the collar work short rows in garter st as follows: * 2 rows back and forth over 15 sts, 2 rows over all sts *, repeat from *-* 1 more time.

KNITTING TIP 2:
When dec sts on each side of sleeve and lace pattern A.4 continues, stripes in lace pattern will disappear in sleeve seam. Work sts that do not fit in stockinette st.
