Join your stitches in the round and place a marker to between the first and last stitches to note beginning of round.

BODY OF WORK

(MC) Rows 1-8:  k6, p2 back to stitch marker
(BC) Rows 9-13: k6, p2 back to stitch marker
(MC) Rows 14-16: k6, p2 back to stitch marker
(BC) Rows 17-19: k6, p2 back to stitch marker

For my beginners, it is always helpful to use stitch markers in between pattern repeats. This starts out as a 16 stitch pattern repeat. So after you complete a k6, p2, c3f, p2 then place a marker before repeating. Trains the eye!

Row 20: k6, p2, c3f, p2 back to stitch marker
Rows 21-27: k6, p2 back to stitch marker

Repeat Rows 20-27 for 1(2) more time(s).

DECREASE
(I am sensitive to the fact that my pattern is a 16 stitch repeat. So when you see double it’s for my beginners who are using stitch markers to separate their pattern repeats.)

Row 1: skp, k2, k2tog, p2, c3f, p2 back to stitch marker
Row 2: k4, ps, k6, p2 back to stitch marker
Row 3: k4, p2, skp, k2, k2tog, p2 back to stitch marker
Row 4: k4, p2, k4, p2 back to stitch marker
Row 5: k4, p2tog, k4, p2 back to stitch marker
Row 6: k4, p1, k4, p2 back to stitch marker
Row 7: k4, p1, c2f, p2tog back to stitch marker

You might need to transition to double points or a second circular to accommodate the stitches on the needle. Disregard if you are using magic loop 🙂

Row 8: k4, p1, k4, p1 back to stitch marker
Row 9: k2tog, p1, k4, p1 back to stitch marker
Row 10: k2, p1, k2tog, p1 back to stitch marker
Row 11: k2tog, p1, k2, p1 back to stitch marker
Row 12: k2tog, k2, p1 back to stitch marker
Row 13: k2tog, k2tog  back to stitch marker

Decrease using k2tog until you have 8 stitches on your needles. Run string through the remaining loops and bind off/tie off properly.
