Work in a knit 1 purl 1 stitch until back at the beginning of row and join together on the circular needles.
Continue with knit 1 purl 1( ribbing stitch) until work measures 1.5 to 2 inches.

Continue knitting next round and when reaching a marker knit two together. This will decrease the total stitch count by 5 stitches per round.
