GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

DECREASE TIP (applies to neck):
Decrease inside 7 band stitches in garter stitch. All decreases are done from the right side.
Decrease as follows after 7 band stitches: Slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked.
Decrease as follows before 7 band stitches: Knit 2 together.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next row work yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

Decrease for buttonholes on right band. 1 BUTTONHOLE = knit third and fourth stitch from edge together and make 1 yarn over. On next row knit yarn over = hole.
