Inc 1 st by working 2 sts in the same st (i.e. front and back loop of st).
Inc 6 sts on row as follows: Work 2 sts in 1st st, * work until next marker, work 2 sts in next st (i.e. in st after marker) *, repeat from *-* 1 time, ** work until 1 st before next marker, work 2 sts in this st (i.e. in st before marker) **, repeat from **-** 1 time, work until 1 st remains on row, work 2 sts in last st = 6 inc.

Row 2 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 3: Switch to Fabel sea mist and K 2 sts in every st = 12 sts.
Row 4: K all sts. Insert 1 marker after 2nd st, 1 marker after 4th st, 1 marker before 9th st, 1 marker before 11th st = 4 markers in total with 4 sts in the middle. NOTE! Move the markers upwards when working.
Row 5: Switch Delight pink/purple, K while AT THE SAME TIME inc 6 sts on row - READ INCREASE TIP = 18 sts.
