stitches cast off by deducting such stitches from the commencement or end of the needle as necessary; this, therefore, cannot be an exact repeat of any given row, but a continuation of the pattern which has already been
worked), casting off 2 stitches at the beginning of each of the next 2 rows, then 1 stitch at the beginning of each
