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

* P 2, K 5 *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Pattern is over 7 sts and no of sts are divisible by 7 + 1. When working in the round, the pattern will displace 1 st towards the right on every round and forms a spiral pattern.

Worked in the round on circular needle, switch to double pointed needles when needed.
Cast on 85-92 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm with Nepal. Work in GARTER ST – see explanation above – until piece measures 3 cm. Then work SPIRAL PATTERN - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 19-20 cm, work in stocking st - AT THE SAME TIME on first round dec 1-2 sts = 84-90 sts. Then insert 6 markers in the piece 14-15 sts apart. On next round, dec 1 st before every marker = 78-84 sts. Repeat dec every other round 5-6 more times (= 6-7 times in total) = 48 sts. Then dec on every round 5 times in total = 18 sts. On next round K tog all sts 2 by 2 = 9-9 sts. Piece measures approx. 27-28 cm. Cut the yarn, use a needle and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 109-116 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm with Nepal. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 10 sts evenly = 99-106 sts. P 1 round. Work SPIRAL PATTERN – see explanation above – until piece measures 16-20 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
