After the first 2 rows 6 sts (4 sts from RS and 2 sts from WS) have been inc and there are 46 sts in total on row. Continue to inc the same way 37 more times = 268 sts on needle (there should be 38 holes along each of the 2 markers and piece measures approx. 32 cm in the middle of piece). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION Switch to off white and work EYELET EDGE - see explanation above. After eyelet edge switch to light lavender and work in garter st while AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every row from RS and 2 sts on every row from WS as before.
