9th-10th rows: Rep 3rd-4th rows using A.

NOTE

Make 1 stitch, 1st row: Using the point of the left-hand needle, pick up the bar that lies between the needles, in between the last stitch worked and the next stitch on the left-hand needle.

Using the right-hand needle, knit into the back of the loop. This twists the stitch and avoids a hole forming.
