Starting in the second row, through row 101, the majority of the stitches are TPS 2 together ie, tps decrease. But there is no room for increases. 

I'm a fairly new tunisian crocheter, but not new to crochet, and I'm having trouble figuring out how I'm supposed to keep 132 stitches when each row is all decreases. I did a sample without the decreases, and it worked beautifully, but not with the right texture as shown in the picture. I'm hoping someone can help me out!

Each TPS 2 together is followed by a yarn over (yo). The yo is your increase stitch. Both the TPS 2 together and the yo count as stitches leaving you with 132 stitches. On Rows 3-101, when you TPS 2 together one stitch of the decrease will be a TPS 2 together and one stitch will be a yo. Please let me know if this doesn't make sense or you have any other questions.
