Row 1 (right side): [k3, yo, double vertical decrease, yo], repeat brackets to end.
Row 2 and every wrong side row: purl all stitches.
Row 3 (right side): [yo, double vertical decrease, yo, k3], repeat brackets to end.

Note: the chart depicts stitches in right side rows from right to left (that is, your first stitch in right side row will be the first stitch on the right of the chart), and stitches in wrong side rows from left to right (that is, your first stitch in wrong side row will be the first stitch on the left of the chart). To make this concept easier, the number of each row is shown at the beginning of the row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side).
