Worked in the round from bottom up. Cast on 196-236-268 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 (80 cm / 32'') with Paris. Work 3 ridges in garter st - see explanation above.

Continue the pattern like this.
When piece measures 8-10-12 cm / 3"-4"-4 3/4" (make sure that next round is 3rd or 7th round in A.2/A.4), dec 2 sts at beg of every A.2 and 2 sts at the end of every A.4 – see X.1 and X.2, dec 8 sts in total on round.
Repeat dec every 4-3-2½ cm / 1½"-1 1/8"-7/8" 9-13-16 more times (10-14-17 times in total) = 116-124-132 sts on needle. Switch to a shorter circular needle when needed.
