(I decided to finish this one off with I-Cord in white to accentuate the white stripe.)

Note: When you get to the marker before your center stitch on pattern rows, make your YO and then slip the marker and knit the center stitch. Then slip the marker, YO and finish the pattern. It is easy to end up with the marker in the wrong place if your marker slips under the YO. If that happens, just move the marker back to the proper position next to the center stitch. You may find you don't need the markers at the center back after you have knitted quite a bit of the pattern.
