Cast on 54 sts on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 with Kid-Silk.
K 1 row. Work next row as follows: K 1, 1 YO, K 2, 1 YO, K 48 (insert a marker on each side of the 48 sts and move it upwards when working), 1 YO, K 2, 1 YO, K 1 = 58 sts.
Then K all rows - AT THE SAME TIME inc with YOs as above (after first st, before first marker, after second marker and before last st on row), inc every other row (= 4 inc per inc row) until finished measurements.
When piece measures approx. 50 cm / 19 3/4'' vertically, work WAVE EDGE – see explanation above.
Bind off sts and YOs with K.

SHAPING:
Place the piece in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze out the water - do not twist. Then roll the piece in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the piece will now only be moist. Place the piece on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to measurements found at the top of pattern. Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the garment has been washed.
