Work next row as follows from RS: 5 band sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, * K 1, P 2, K 1, P 3 *, repeat from *-* until 6 sts remain on row and finish with K 1 and 5 band sts in GARTER ST. Continue like this until rib measures approx. 3 cm / 1'' – remember BUTTONHOLE on right band – see explanation above. On next row from RS, dec all 3 P sts to 2 P sts = 185-203-221-239-263-287 sts on needle. Insert 2 markers in the piece; 49-53-58-62-68-74 sts in from each side (= 87-97-105-115-127-139 sts between markers on back piece).

Work next row as follows from RS: 5 band sts in garter st, work pattern according to diagram A.1 until 6 sts remain on row, work 1st st in A.1 (so that pattern is the same in each side towards mid front) and finish with 5 band sts in garter st.
