Using sz 8US needles, c/o 30 sts and knit two rows.

R2: *K2, drop the next two stitches (the two wraps from the previous
row)*, repeat from * to * to last 2 sts, k2.
Repeat these two rows, leaving enough yarn at the end of the ball for casting off.  After a Row 2, bind off all stitches loosely knitwise.
