Worked in the round from bottom edge towards the waist. LOOSELY cast on 208-224-256-272-304-336 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Muskat. K 1 round, P 1 round and continue in M.1.

After 5 vertical repeats of M.1 (piece measures approx 30 cm) work next round as follows: * K2 tog, K14 *, repeat from *-* across the round = 195-210-240-255-285-315 sts on needle. Now insert 6 markers in piece as follows: * 1 marker after 32-35-40-42-47-52 sts, 1 marker after 33-35-40-43-48-53 sts *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, last marker will now be at beg of round. Now continue in stocking st. AT THE SAME TIME on round 6 in stocking st dec 1 st by all markers – See DECREASING TIP (= 6 dec sts per round). Repeat the dec on every 6th round a total of 6-7-7-9-10-10 times and then on every 4th round a total of 3-2-4-2-2-4 times = 141-156-174-189-213-231 sts.
