Next row (dec): k 2-3 , p2, k2, p2, k 3-4 , sl1, k1, psso, k2tog, k 3-4, p2, k2, p2, k2-3.
Rep these decs in the same place as before on every 10th row 4 times, working 1 st less before the psso and 1 st less after the k2tog.
When work measures 30-34 c m ( 12-13½ i n) [ 72-82 rows] total, leave the rem 16-20 sts on a spare needle.
