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

INCREASE TIP:
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.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all rows in pattern seen from RS.

DOUBLE YARN TIP:
Use yarn from inside and outside of ball when using only one ball. When switching to a new ball, try to avoid switching both strands at the same time - to avoid a thick yarn when fastening.
