Row 11: Repeat row 3.

Row 12: Repeat row 2.

Repeat these 12 rows for pattern.

Note: The pattern as written works over 34 stitches with no repeats in any rows. If you want to work the pattern over just 17 stitches, skip the section that would be repeated and just knit the beginning stitches and the ending stitches. For example, row 1 worked over 17 stitches would be P1, K3, P9, K3, P1.
