Knitting Tension: 10 sts x 14 rows on needles size 9 mm in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Continue like this. When piece measures 12 cm inc all P2 to P3 (seen from the RS) – see Increasing tips = 57 sts. After 2 rows inc all P3 to P4 = 71 sts. Repeat the inc of P sts on every 4th row 3 times = 113 sts. Cast off loosely when piece measures 22 cm.
Sew piece tog in the outer loops of sts to avoid a chunky seam.
