RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

Work 5 ridges (= 10 rows) with mustard, 5 ridges with red and 5 ridges with black.

The piece is worked back and forth. First work the flag, bottom up. Then work back and forth out to each side. The head band is sewn together mid back.

The piece is worked back and forth. Cast on 17-19 stitches with needle size 4 mm and off white. Knit 1 row from the wrong side. Then work GARTER STITCH with STRIPES – see description above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Then knit 1 row with off white, cast off. The square measures approx. 9-10 cm x 8-10 cm.
Knit up from the right side with off white 17-19 stitches evenly spaced along the one side of the square. Work garter stitch until the piece measures 29-31 cm (including the square). Cast off. Knit up on the other side of the square in the same way and work until the piece measures a total of 50-53 cm. Sew the cast off edge together – sew in the outermost loop so the seam is flat.
