This is taken from the website Blue Garter "Garter stitch jacquard (and I’m using the term as Montse Stanley does to describe stranded color patterning) is not difficult to do; you can work any charted design you’d use for regular stranded colorwork, except that you have to work each row of the motif twice: right to left and then left to right, so that your design reads on the garter ridges. On the wrong side there’s a pleasurable dance of the working and resting wools fore and aft to keep the strands on the inside of the sweater"
This was also a great help. Knitting Patterns
Fortunately, I am doing the patter in just plain black so I don't have to worry about the color changes.
Once I figured out what to do, the bottom part knitted up easily. It took only 10 minutes to do the sole.
