EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

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

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 stitch in 2 different ways:
Decrease 1 stitch towards the right on left side of the piece: Knit 2 together.
Decrease 1 stitch towards the left on right side of the piece: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over; on the next row knit the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole.

ROW 1 (= right side):
Knit 2, increase 1 stitch – read INCREASE TIP!, knit until there are 4 stitches left on row, decrease 1 stitch towards the right – read DECREASE TIP! and knit 2. Remember each row from the wrong side is knitted.

ROW 2 (=right side):
Knit until there are 4 stitches left, decrease 1 stitch towards the right and knit 2.

ROW 3 (=right side):
