Work the rest of the piece on straight needles.
Pick up where you left off with the net pattern in the following way (Round 1 corresponds with row 1, round 2 with row 2, etc.:
Row 1: k8, * yo, k2tog * 4 times, k to end.
Rows 2 and 4: P all sts.
Row 3: k8, * sl1, k1, psso, yo * 4 times, k to end.
Every 8th row, work a yo 2 sts from the edge without a dec to even it out 6 times, and then with a dec to even it out 8 times.
For the final 8 rows, where you k all sts in the pattern, instead work a k1, p1 rib.
Work a yo with a dec 2 sts from the edge on the 8th row.
