Row 2: P 2(2-1-1), work Row 2 of pattern st to next marker, p 2(2-1-1). Keeping 2(2-1-1) sts each end of needle in stockinette st, work remaining sts in pattern as established for 7 rows more. 

On the next Row inc 1 st each end of needle and repeat this inc every 6th Row 10(13-11-14) times more, working inc sts in stockinette st and remaining sts in pattern as established.
