Round #1: knit one, purl one for entire round.
Round #2: purl one, knit one for entire round.

Continue this seed stitch pattern until 3 inches are completed.
Then work 2-2 1/2 inches of single rib stitch (knit one, purl one-each round)
Decrease as follows:
1. (knit 8, knit 2 together), around.
2. (and all even rows) knit.
3. (knit 7, knit 2 together), around.
5. (knit 6, knit 2 together), around.
7. (knit 5, knit 2 together), around.
