P 1 row from WS and continue in rib as follows: 4 front band sts in GARTER ST – see above, * K3, P3 *, repeat from *-* and finish with K3 and 4 front band sts in garter st. Continue like this until piece measures approx 20 cm / 8''.

MARKER-2 after a total of 34-38-42-46 sts,
MARKER-3 after a total of 57-63-69-75 sts,
MARKER-4 after a total of 77-85-93-101 sts, = 14-16-18-20 sts left after last marker.

When piece measures approx 28 cm / 11'' dec 1 sts each side of all markers on next row from RS – SEE DECREASING TIP! (= 8 dec). Repeat the dec on every other row a total of 6-7-8-9 times = 43-45-47-49 sts. When piece measures approx 44-47-50-53 cm / 17 1/4"-18½"-19 3/4"-21" dec 4-6-1-3 sts evenly on next row from RS (do not dec on front bands) = 39-39-46-46 sts. P 1 row from WS and continue in rib as follows (as seen from RS): 4 front band sts in garter st, * P3, K4 *, repeat from *-* and finish with P3 and 4 front band sts in garter st. Continue with K over K and P over P - AT THE SAME TIME on next row from RS dec all K4 to K3 by K tog the 2 middle sts = 35-35-41-41 sts. Continue with K over K and P over P. When rib measures approx 12 cm / 4¾'' inc all K3 to K4 (as seen from RS) by K 2 sts in the middle st = 39-39-46-46 sts. Continue until rib measures approx 20 cm / 8'' and bind off loosely with K over K and P over P.
