Rnd 22: [K3, p3] 8 times, k3, p2, si 1, k2tog, psso, p2, [k3, p3] 3 times—74 sts rem.

Rnd 24: *Yo, k3tog, yo, p3; rep from *. Rnds 25-68: Rep Rnds 1-4 eleven more times, ending with Rnd 4—68 rnds have been worked; if counted straight up along a single column of eyelet holes, there will be 17 holes; piece measures about 7" (18 cm) from beg.
