Work next round as follows: * P3, K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K2, P1, K2, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1 *, repeat from *-* to end = 112-128 sts. Change to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Continue as follows: * P3, M.2 (K YO from previous round into back of loop to avoid a hole) *, repeat from *-* to end (= 7-8 repeats).
