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

SPIRAL PATTERN:
* 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.
