GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

See diagram A.1.

Because of the weight of the yarn the piece must be held up when measured.

Worked in the round on circular needle.
LOOSELY cast on 76-88-100 sts on circular needle size 12 mm / US 17 with 1 strand of each yarn (= 3 strands) and work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above.
Then continue according to diagram A.1. When piece measures 14-15-16 cm / 5½”-6”-6¼” – READ MEASURING TIP and make sure not to dec on a round with YOs, dec 4-4-4 sts evenly = 72-84-96 sts.
Continue A.1. When piece measures 25-27-29 cm / 9¾”-10½”-11½”, dec 4-6-6 sts evenly = 68-78-90 sts.
When piece measures 30-32-34 cm / 11¾”-12½”-13½”, dec 10-12-14 sts evenly = 58-66-76 sts.
When piece measures 35-37-39 cm / 13¾”-14½”-15¼”, dec 10-14-16 sts evenly = 48-52-60 sts. Continue to work until piece measures 39-41-43 cm / 15¼”-16”-17”, work 1 ridge and LOOSELY bind off with K.
