CROCHET INFO: Replace the first dc on each row/round with 1 ch and replace the first dtr with 4 ch.
Finish each row/round with 1 dc in 4th ch from beg of previous row/from beg of round and finish each row/round with dtr in first ch from beg of previous row/from beg of round.

DECREASING TIP: Only dec on rows/rounds with dtr. Crochet 2 dtr tog as follows: Work 1 dtr, but stop when 2 sts remain on hook, work 1 dtr in next dc and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook. Make the first dec at the end of all dtr-sections, the second at the beg of all dtr-sections and continue like this, alternating between the end and the beg.

Continue in pattern as before, AT THE SAME TIME on next row with dtr, dec 1 dtr in each of the large dtr-sections - do not dec on front bands = 20 dec. Repeat the dec on every other row with dtr (= every 4th row) 3-4-5-3-3-2 times and then on every row with dtr 0-0-0-3-4-6 times. When all dec are complete there are 133-135-137-139-141-143 sts on row.
