Work piece back and forth on circular needle in garter stitch. Knit all rows. Knit yarn overs to make holes when increasing.
Cast on 9 stitches with 1 strand of each colour (= 2 strands) on circular needle size 7 mm.
Then work as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 3, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 3, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 13 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle stitch.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit until 1 stitch remains, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 2 stitches increased. 
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit until middle stitch, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= middle stitch), 1 yarn over, knit until 1 stitch remains, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 4 stitches increased. 

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until piece measures approx. 31 cm measured along middle stitch - or desired measurements. Loosely cast off by knitting. Cut and fasten the strands.
