Cast on an even number of stitches. Add 2 more selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.
Row 1 (right side): knit all sts.
Row 2 (wrong side): purl all sts.
Row 3 (right side): knit all sts.
Row 4 (wrong side): purl all sts.
Row 5 (right side): *purl 1 st, slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn in front of the work (closer to you)*, repeat from * to * as necessary.
Row 6 (wrong side): *knit 1 st, slip 1 stitch knitwise with yarn at back of the work (farther from you)*, repeat from * to * as necessary.
Repeat rows 1-6 as necessary for completing your project.
You can also work according to the chart below. Pattern repeat is marked by red frame.
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 row 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 row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side). Ignore this note if you knit in circle and start all your rows from the right of the chart.
