See diagram M.1. Diagram shows the pattern from RS.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows.
Inc 4 sts on every row from RS throughout as follows:
Inc 1 st at beg of row: 3 garter sts, 1 YO. On next row P YO.
Inc 2 sts mid piece: 1 YO, work middle st, 1 YO. On next row P YO.
Inc 1 st at the end of row: 1 YO, 3 garter sts. On next row P YO.

Worked back and forth on circular needle in order to fit in all sts and worked from mid back at top towards the bottom. NOTE! Make sure to start a new ball of yarn at the side and not mid piece.
Cast on 7 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Kid-Silk. Insert a marker in st no 4 (marks mid back). Work first row as follows (= RS): 3 GARTER STS - see above - 1 YO, 1 garter st, 1 YO and 3 garter sts = 9 sts. Continue back and forth in garter st AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every other row - See INCREASING TIP! Continue until there are 149 sts on needle (piece measures approx 18 cm, measured in knitting direction). Continue as follows (from RS): 3 garter sts, M.1A, M.1B on the next 70 sts, M.1C, 1 stocking st (= middle st), M.1A, M.1B on the next 70 sts, M.1C and 3 garter sts. Continue in pattern like this, but for each vertical repeat of M.1 work an extra repeat of M.1B each side of the middle. Work a total of 4.5 vertical repeats of M.1 = 401 sts. Now continue in garter st on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every other row as before. Continue until there are approx 11 cm garter st after M.1 and cast off LOOSELY with 2 strands.
