RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):

The piece is worked back and forth with double strand.

Cast on 38 stitches with 2 strands grey blue and needle size 3 mm. Work 2 ridges - see description above. Then work the next row as follows: 5 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 repeated over the next 28 stitches and work 5 stitches in garter stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Read STRIPES and work garter stitch and pattern until STRIPE 6 has been worked (the piece measures approx. 23 cm). Continue with light ice blue and work 1 ridge. Then work the next row with inlaid loop as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left. Before the last 2 stitches, cast on 7 new stitches on the needle, then knit together the last 2 stitches. On the next row cast off all stitches (the new stitches for the loop as well).
Cut and fasten the strands.
