Work 1 row on all sts *. Repeat from *-* a total of 4-5-6 times = 26-28-31 sts. Insert a marker in one of the sides
after the last inc, now measure piece from here.
Continue with shortened rows and dec as follows: * K tog the first 2 sts on needle, work 5 sts, turn and work 6 sts.
Work 1 row on all sts. K tog the first 2 sts on needle, work 5 sts, turn and work 6 sts. Work 1 row on all sts *. Repeat
