Knitting tension: 15 sts x 30 rows on needle size 6 mm with 1 thread of each quality in garter sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Knitting tips: When turning in the middle of the work, - slip the first st , tighten the thread and knit back. This is done to avoid a hole in the transition.

Turns: - Read knitting tips.
*Knit 2 rows back and forth over all sts. Knit 18-19-20-21-22 sts, turn, knit back over these sts.
Knit over all sts, turn, knit 18-19-20-21-22 sts, turn, knit back over these sts.
