GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):

See diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3, diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.
Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 95-101 sts on needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Lima. Work RIDGES in garter st – see explanation above – until piece measures 5-6 cm / 2''-2½''. On next row from RS switch to needle size 5 mm / US 8 and work as follows: 2 edge sts in garter st (worked in garter st until finished measurements), PATTERN A.1 (= 2 sts) – see explanation above – A.2 (= 6 sts) until 7 sts remain (= 14-15 repetitions in width), A.3 (= 5 sts), finish with 2 edge sts in garter st (worked in garter st until finished measurements).

Now continue piece in stockinette st as follows: * Work 2 rows in stockinette st. Then dec by K 2 tog after every marker = 16-17 sts dec.
Work 3 rows in stockinette st. Then dec by K 2 tog after every marker = 16-17 sts dec, K 1 row *, repeat from *-* 1 more time (= 2 times in total). Then work 2 rows in stockinette st, on next row dec after every marker by K 2 tog = 16-17 sts dec = 15-16 sts remain on needle.
