Dec 1 st on each side of marker as follows: Work until 2 sts remain before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, (marker), K tog the next 2 sts.

Work front and back piece separately back and forth on circular needle until after splits in the sides.

Loosely cast on 95-105-115 sts on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 with Eskimo. NOTE: Make sure that the cast on edge is not too tight. Work 2 rows in GARTER ST - see explanation above (1st row = RS).
On next row from RS work as follows: 2 sts in garter st, work diagram A.1 9-10-11 times in total, finish with 1st st in A.1 (= P st seen from RS) and 2 sts in garter st.
Work pattern with 2 sts in garter st in each side 1 time vertically. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
On next row from RS switch to Puddel and circular needle size 7 mm / US 10.75, K while AT THE SAME TIME dec 15 sts evenly on row = 80-90-100 sts.
Continue with stockinette st over the middle sts and continue with 2 sts in garter st in each side until piece measures 15-16-17 cm / 6"-6 1/4"-6 3/4", put piece aside.

Cast on and work as on front piece.

Slip sts from front and back piece on to same circular needle size 7 mm / US 10.75 = 160-180-200 sts. Insert 1 marker in each side in the transition between back and front piece, 1 marker in the middle of back piece and 1 marker in the middle of front piece = 4 markers, move them upwards when working.
