GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K sts on all rows.

Cast on (23-25-27) 27-29-29 sts on a double pointed needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 with Andes (let the thread end be approx. 20 cm / 8'' long, this is used for assembly).
Work in GARTER ST – see explanation above, back and forth on needle until piece measures (8½-9½-10½) 11½-13-14½ cm / (3 1/4"-3 3/4"-4 1/4") 4½"-5 1/8"-5 3/4".
Distribute the sts on 4 double pointed needles and work rib K 1/P 1 in the round while AT THE SAME TIME working first and last st on round K tog = mid on top of foot.
There are (22-24-26) 26-28-28 sts remain on needle.
Continue rib until piece measures (14½-16½-18½) 20½-23½-26½ cm / (5 3/4"-6½"-7 1/4") 8 1/8"-9 1/4"-10½".
Then work in stockinette st in the round while AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round K2 tog around = 11-12-13 (13-14-14) sts.
Work 1 round.
On next round K2 tog around (when no of sts is not divisible with 2, K the last st) = 6-6-7 (7-7-7) sts remain on needle.
Piece measures approx. (16-18-20) 22-25-28 cm / (6 1/4"-7"-8") 8 3/4"-9 /4"-11".
Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Fold the cast on edge double (= mid back), use the thread end at the beg to sew neatly tog mid back.
