Row 1 (right side) Color A: knit all sts
Row 2 (wrong side) Color A: purl all sts
Row 3 (right side) Color B: *knit 1 st, slip 1 stitch knitwise with yarn behind the work*, repeat from * to * as necessary.
Row 4 (wrong side) Color B: *slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn in front of the work, purl 1 st*, repeat from * to * as necessary.
Repeat rows 1-4 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 the round and start all your rows from the right of the chart.
