After 57 cm = 228 rub. (59 cm = 236 rub.) 61 cm = 244 rub. from the cast-on row, decrease from the left edge for the outer bottom bevel, first 1 time 1 p., then 6 (4) 2 times in every 4th p. and 21 (25) 29 times in every 2nd r. 1 p. each

At the same time after 60 cm = 240 r. (62 cm = 248 rub.) 64 cm = 256 rub. from the cast-on row, decrease from the right edge for the inner (rounded) bevel, first 1 time 1 p., then 7 (5) 3 times in every 4th p. and 9 (13) 17 times in every 2nd r. 1 p., after that in every 2nd p. close 4 times in every 2nd r. 2 p. each
