K 1 round and continue in rib K3/ P3. When rib measures 4-4-4 (5-5) cm / 1½"-1½"-1½" (2"-2") K 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME dec 6 sts evenly = 42-48-54 (60-66) sts.

When piece measures 6-6-6 (7-7) cm / 2 3/8"-2 3/8"-2 3/8" (2 3/4"-2 3/4") inc 1 st each side of marker, and repeat the inc on every 3-4-5 (5-7) cm / 1 1/8"-1½"-2" (2"-2 3/4") a total of 4 times = 50-56-62 (68-74) sts. When piece measures 16-20-23 (25-32) cm / 6 1/4"-8"-9" (9 3/4"-12½") divide piece at inside of leg and complete piece back and forth on needle (to make it easier to slip sts on circular needle later on).
