Pattern instructions

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

Insert 1 marker in the middle stitch on the row.
ROW 1 (= wrong side): Knit.
ROW 2 (= right side): Knit until there is 1 stitch left before the marker, slip 2 stitches as if to knit together, knit 1, pass the 2 slipped stitches over the knitted stitch, knit to end of row.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 - you are decreasing 2 stitches in the middle of the square every 2nd row (i.e. each row from the right side) until there is 1 stitch left on the needle. Cut the strand and pull it through this stitch.

Work 1 row with royal blue, 2 rows with off white and then continue with red.

The piece is worked back and forth. The flag consists of 4 domino squares which are sewn together to one square. Then you work back and forth out from two sides of the square. The head band is sewn together mid back.

Cast on 17-19 stitches with needle size 4 mm and royal blue. Work DOMINO SQUARE in STRIPES – see description above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Work a total of 4 domino squares. Lay the 4 domino squares edge to edge so that the cast on edges on all 4 squares make a cross. Sew the sides together two and two, sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch.
Knit up from the right side with red, 17-19 stitches evenly along the one side. Knit 1 row from the wrong side. Change to royal blue and work GARTER STITCH – see description above. When the piece measures 25-26 cm from the middle of the flag, cast off. Knit up and work in the same way on the opposite side of the square. Sew the cast off edges together – sew in the outermost loop so that the seam is flat.
