Repeat rows 2-5.

KNITTING TIP 1:
No of sts is divisible with uneven number when English rib is worked. To make an English rib in stripes work back and forth on a circular needle as follows: Work 1st and 2nd row as explained below. Move all sts on circular needle to the other end of circular needle so that next row can be worked with a new color from same side as 2nd row. Then turn piece and work the next 2 rows from the other side the same way as 2nd and 3rd row. That means that 1 row is worked with every color from same side before turning the piece.

KNITTING TIP 2:
If you are in doubt, see what color the previous row was worked with on the color of edge st.

Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 72-81 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with gray. K 1 row.

When piece measures 23-24 cm / 9"-9½" – adjust to finish after 5th row and work next row in gray as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, * K tog YO and slipped st, P 1 *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, K tog YO and slipped st and 1 edge st in garter st. Turn and continue with rib K 1/P 1 with 1 edge st in garter st in each side with gray until rib measures approx. 3 cm / 1''.
Work 4 rows in stockinette st - AT THE SAME TIME on 2nd row from RS work sts tog 2 by 2, repeat on 4th row = 13-14 sts.
