P 1 row from WS. Then work rib as follows (seen from RS): 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-*, finish with K 2 and 1 edge st in garter st. When rib measures approx. 4 cm / 1½'' (adjust so that next row is worked from RS), switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3. K 1 row while AT THE SAME TIME dec 25-25-29-33-33 sts evenly = 139-151-163-175-187 sts. Work 3 rows in stockinette st.

When diagram M.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work 3 rows in stockinette st with off white. Continue as follows (from RS): 1 edge st, diagram M.2A until 6 sts remain, diagram M.2B and 1 edge st.
Continue working like this until piece measures approx. 20-23-25-27-29 cm / 8"-9"-9 3/4"-10½"-11½" (adjust so that 3 rows with one color have been worked after 1 row with dots).
