At sections A and C, work rows 2–4, then keep repeating rows 1–4; at section B, work rows 2–10 and then keep repeating rows 1–10.

When the piece measures approx. 36(37)38(39)41(42) cm, finish with an even-numbered row of the chart and then work next round to last 3(5)5(6)6(6) sts.

Leave the front sts on hold.
