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

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

See diagrams A.1-A.3. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

All dec are done from RS!
Dec as follows before marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Dec as follows after marker: K 2 tog.

Worked back and forth to make a vent in each side. Then continue in the round until finished measurements.
Loosely cast on 234-253-272-291 sts (incl 3 edge sts in each side) on circular needle size 4 mm with Cotton Light. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST back and forth - see explanation above! Then work as follows: 3 edge sts in garter st, PATTERN according to diagram A.1 (= 19 sts on 1st row) 12-13-14-15 times in width, and finish with 3 edge sts in garter st. NOTE: After 1st row in diagram A.1 has been worked, 2 sts have been dec in every repetition (a total of 24-26-28-30 sts dec on row) = 210-227-244-261 sts. Continue back and forth until A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically. Then work the same way with pattern as before but work A.3 instead of A.2. Continue with A.3 3 times vertically AT THE SAME TIME on last row from RS (i.e. last repetition of A.3 vertically), dec 61 sts evenly = 149-166-183-200 sts. Slip sts on a stitch holder and knit another part the same way. When the other part is finished, work in stocking st over all sts from RS. Slip sts from stitch holder back on needle and continue in stocking st over these sts = 298-332-366-400 sts. Then work in the round. On next round insert 6 markers in the piece as follows: First marker directly above vent in one side, 38-42-45-49 sts in stocking st, insert a marker here, 73-82-93-102 sts in stocking st, insert a marker here, 38-42-45-49 sts in stocking st, insert a marker here, 38-42-45-49 sts in stocking st, insert a marker here, 73-82-93-102 sts in stocking st, insert a marker here, 38-42-45-49 sts in stocking st. Then work in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 21-22-22-20 cm dec as follows: Work in stocking st until 2 sts remain before first marker, then dec 1 st on each side of marker – READ DECREASE TIP! Repeat this dec on each side of the other markers in piece = 12 sts dec on round. Repeat this dec every 4½-3½-2½-2½ cm 1-2-4-5 more times (= 2-3-5-6 times in total) = 274-296-306-328 sts. Then dec the same way but now dec every cm 8-9-9-10 times in total = 178-188-198-208 sts remain. Continue with 5 ridges, AT THE SAME TIME dec 23-24-22-23 sts evenly on first row in first ridge = 155-164-176-185 sts remain. Loosely cast off, cut the yarn and fasten.
