Works on odd numbers of stitches.

For best results (and easier knitting), use a larger needle than the yarn calls for. The sample was worked on medium weight yarn with size 9 US knitting needles.

Row 1: Knit 2, *insert needle between the next 2 stitches from back to front, knit the second stitch, leaving it on the left-hand needle, then knit the first stitch, sliding both off the needle. Repeat from * across, ending knit 1.

Row 2: Purl 2, *skip the next stitch on the needle and purl the second stitch, leaving it on the left-hand needle, then purl the first stitch and slide both off the needle. Repeat from * across, ending purl 1.

Repeat these rows for pattern.
