DRESS:

Worked in the round on circular needle.

Continue like this for 5-5-6 (6-7) cm / 2"-2"-2 3/8" (2 3/8"-2 3/4"). Now dec 1 st on both sides of each K-section by working the K10 as follows (work the P4 as before): slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K sts until 2 sts remain, K2 tog.
Repeat this dec on every other round a total of 4 times = 168-180-192 (204-216) sts. Work 1 round with K over K and P over P. Change to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 and K 1 round on all sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 36-36-32 (28-32) sts evenly = 132-144-160 (176-184) sts. Insert 1 marker at beg of round and 1 marker after 66-72-80 (88-92) sts (to mark the sides). Now measure piece from here!
