INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

GARTER STITCH (in the round - applies to neck edge):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

INCREASE TIP (applies to yoke):
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase by making 1 yarn over between 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. Purl yarn over twisted on next row, it should not make holes.

DECREASE TIP (applies to body):
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of every marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread and knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker thread is between these stitches), slip next stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased in total). Repeat at both marker threads (= 4 stitches decreased in total).

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Choose diagram for your size in A.3b. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.
