1st round: * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-*.

Worked in the round on circular needle/double pointed needles. Cast on 110-120 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Lima and K 1 round. Then work rib = K 1/P 1. When rib measures 4-4 cm, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Work in MOSS ST - see explanation above - while AT THE SAME TIME inc 10-8 sts evenly on 1st round = 120-128 sts.
When piece measures 21-22 cm, K 1 round while at the same time dec 30-28 sts evenly = 90-100 sts on round. Switch to double pointed needles and finish piece in GARTER ST - see explanation above - AT THE SAME TIME on first P round insert 9-10 markers 10 sts apart.
Then dec as follows on next K round: K 2 tog after every marker - repeat dec on every K round (i.e every other round) until 9-10 sts remain. Pull thread through all sts and tighten tog.
Fasten the threads.
