Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
GARTER STITCH (back and forth on needle):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

GARTER STITCH (in the round on double pointed needles):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

See diagram A.1. The diagram shows the pattern seen from right side.


Cast on 40-40-48 stitches on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 with pastel pink. Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH – see explanation above, then work A.1 in the round (= 5-5-6 repetitions). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work 3 ridges with pastel pink, AT THE SAME TIME on last round with purl decrease 4-2-8 stitches evenly = 36-38-40 stitches. Finish piece with pastel pink.

Slip the first 13-13-14 stitches on stitch holder, keep the next 9-11-11 stitches on needle, slip the last 14-14-15 stitches on a stitch holder. Continue with GARTER STITCH – see explanation above, back and forth over the 9-11-11 stitches (= middle part), AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row cast on 1 new stich in each side (edge stitch) = 11-13-13 stitches. When middle part measures 7-8½-10 cm / 2 3/4"-8 1/4"-4'', decrease 1 edge stitch in each side = 9-11-11 stitches. Then slip stitches from stitch holder back on circular needle and pick up 12-14-16 stitches on each side of middle part (inside 1 edge stitch) = 60-66-72 stitches on needle.
NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Insert 1 marker thread mid front of toe and 1 marker thread mid back on heel. Continue in the round in garter stitch. When piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'', knit 2 stiches together on each side of every marker thread on every other round (= 4 stitches less per round). Continue decrease until piece measures 5-5-6 cm / 2''-2''-2½'', bind off. Sew together seam mid under foot in outermost stitch to avoid a chunky seam.


All measurements in charts are in cm.
