Then, make 6 rows without decreases, after that repeat decreases from both sides of marks = every row with decreases has 8 sts fewer. Knit 6 rows straight, then, repeat decreases. Knit the next 3 rows and repeat decreases. Knit 3 more rows and repeat decreases = there are 164 (181) 198 sts left on the knitting needles.
