Continue inc like this (= inc 6 dc on every round) until there are 96-102-108 dc on the round (i.e. so that for every round 1 dc more is worked between every 1 dc inc). Continue working 1 dc in every st until piece measures 10-11-12 cm from mid down - while AT THE SAME TIME on last round inc 3-6-9 dc evenly - READ INCREASE TIP = 99-108-117.
