Cast on 47 stitches with Paris on needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work diagram A.1 over all stitches 1 time vertically. Then work as follows (1st row = wrong side and read diagrams from left towards right): Work A.2 over 6 stitches, repeat A.3 over the next 36 stitches (= 2 times) and A.4 over 5 stitches. Work diagrams A.2, A.3 and A.4 4 times in total vertically. Then repeat the last 2 rows in A.2 to A.4 one time. Bind off on next row with knit over purl and purl over knit. Fasten off.


= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
