Decrease Rows:

Depending on where you left off depends on how you bind off.

First decrease row: Within each group of 3 sts, knit/purl the first 2 stitches in the group together and knit/purl the last stitch in the group. You should finish the row with 44 sts but may vary depending on how you chose to approach the first and last stitch in row if end on a row that doesn’t start with a k3 or p3.

Second decrease row: knit or purl the remaining sts in pattern accordingly. (22sts)

Third decrease row: *k2tog* (11sts)

Break yarn and pull through remaining stitches.
