Sorry if I'm being confusing, but I think you're misunderstanding what I'm saying. I'm calling it garter because that is what it is when knit flat, i.e. knit every row. I'm trying to convert it to knitting in the round. Fibrenut has helped me get that I need to alternate knit and purl rows to get the garter stitch part, so now I've done that part and it looks like the front and back that I've already knit flat. Now I'm getting stuck with how to do the purl rows that come in between the garter parts, and this is the part I haven't explained very well, because there are knit rows in there too. The pattern goes (when knit flat), 5 rows of knit, change to smaller needles, purl one row, knit one row, repeat these 2 rows. Change to larger needles, knit 4 rows, change to smaller needles, purl one row. How do I replicate this in the round?
