START THE PIECE HERE:

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

CARPET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Piece is worked back and forth from approx. centre of carpet and in the round in parts. First work a round circle, then work parts with short rows, garter stitch and stripes.

CARPET:
Cast on 8 stitches on circular needle size 7 mm with 3 strands light lavender. Knit 1 row (= from wrong side). Work in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. On next row begin increase as follows:
ROW 1 (= from right side): * Knit 1, 1 yarn over * work from *-* until 1 stitch remains, work 2 stitches in last stitch = 16 stitches.
ROW 2 AND ALL ROWS FROM WRONG SIDE: Knit all stitches, work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
ROW 3: * Knit 2, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* until 2 stitches remain, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 24 stitches.
ROW 5: * Knit 3, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* until 3 stitches remain, knit 2, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 32 stitches.
ROW 7: * Knit 4, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* until 4 stitches remain, knit 3, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 40 stitches.
Knit 1 row from wrong side but work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
Sew circle together in outer loops of edge stitches.
Now continue piece in parts as follows:

PART 1:
Continue with 3 strands off white. Now work short rows back and forth in garter stitch as follows:
Insert 1 marker, this marks beginning of round.
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until 2 stitches remain before marker (= 38 stitches), turn and tighten yarn.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit until 2 stitches remain before marker (= 36 stitches), turn and tighten yarn.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit until 4 stitches remain before marker (= 34 stitches), turn and tighten yarn.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Knit until 4 stitches remain before marker (= 32 stitches), turn and tighten yarn.
ROW 5 (= right side): Knit until 6 stitches remain before marker (= 30 stitches), turn and tighten yarn.
ROW 6 (= wrong side): Knit until 6 stitches remain before marker (= 28 stitches), turn and tighten yarn.
Continue like this, i.e. by working 2 stitches less on every turn until 1 row has been worked over the last 4 stitches from wrong side (= 9 ridges).
Cut the yarn. Continue in the round with 3 strands mustard as follows:
Begin at marker (= beginning of round).
ROUND 1: * Knit 2, 1 yarn over (i.e. make 1 yarn over where the short row was turned) * work from *-* the entire round (= 20 stitches increased) = 60 stitches.
ROUND 2: Purl all stitches, do not work yarn overs twisted; they should make holes. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!

PART 2:
Move the marker 30 stitches (i.e. displace beginning of round with 30 stitches, work part 2 and begin from marker).
