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

See diagram A.1. Work entire pattern in stocking st.

To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle no when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

To calculate how often dec should be done, use the total no of sts on round (e.g. 264 sts) and divide by no of dec to be done (e.g. 32) = 8.25. I.e. in this example K approx. every 7th and 8th st tog.

Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next round work YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead front) to avoid holes.

Work back and forth on circular needle up to vent, then work in the round.

BACK PIECE (up to vent):
Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 106-114-118-130-138-150 sts on circular needle size 5 mm with light grey. Work 3 rows in GARTER ST - see explanation above (1st row = WS). K 1 row. Then work in stocking st with 5 sts in garter st in each side of piece. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 13-14-15-16-17-18 cm, dec 1 edge st in each side, adjust so that next row is worked from RS = 104-112-116-128-136-148 sts. Put piece aside and work front piece up to vent.

FRONT PIECE (up to vent):
Cast on and work as back piece.

Worked in the round.
Slip sts front and back piece on to same circular needle = 208-224-232-256-272-296 sts. Then work in stocking st and light grey until piece measures 30-32-34-36-38-40 cm. Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 while AT THE SAME TIME on round marked with arrow 1 in diagram dec 6-8-8-10-10-12 sts evenly - READ DECREASE TIP and KNITTING TIP = 202-216-224-246-262-284 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow 2 in diagram dec 18-24-24-30-30-36 sts evenly = 184-192-200-216-232-248 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow 3 in diagram dec 32-32-32-36-44-48 sts evenly = 152-160-168-180-188-200 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow 4 in diagram dec 32-34-36-42-44-50 sts evenly = 120-126-132-138-144-150 sts. Continue pattern.
On round marked with arrow 5 in diagram (= last round) dec 34-30-34-36-36-34 sts evenly = 86-96-98-102-108-116 sts.
Work 1 round with light grey while inc 4-6-4-6-6-4 sts evenly - READ INCREASE TIP = 90-102-102-108-114-120 sts. Then work rib in the round = K 2/P 4 on a short circular needle. Loosely cast off with K over K and P over P when rib measures approx. 20 cm.
