PIECE-1: Cast on 30 sts on needle size 8 mm with beige mix. Work 2 rows garter st on all sts – see above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! * Change to pink. Continue in garter st, AT THE SAME TIME work shortened rows as follows: work row until 2 sts remain, turn piece and work return row. Work row until 3 sts remain, turn piece and work return row. Work row until 4 sts remain, turn piece and work return row.

Repeat from *-* a total of 5 times, and then cast off in beige mix.
PIECE-2: Cast on and work like PIECE-1.

Place the 2 pieces on top of each other to form the same shape each side (i.e. one piece with the RS out and 1 piece with the WS out). Sew tog in outer loops of sts, but leave cast on and cast off rows open. NOTE! Make sure not to tighten the thread when fastening.
