Stitch pattern is a panel of 7 stitches that can be repeated as often as you like.

Row 1: Purl 1, knit 1, purl 1, knit 4.

Row 2 and all wrong side rows: Knit the knits and purl the purls as you see them.

Row 3: (Knit 1, purl 1) twice, knit 3.

Row 5: Knit 2, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1, knit 2.

Row 7: Knit 3, (purl 1, knit 1) twice.

Row 9: Knit 4, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1.

Rows 11 and 12: Repeat rows 7 and 8.

Rows 13 and 14: Repeat rows 5 and 6.

Rows 15 and 16: Repeat rows 3 and 4.

Repeat these 16 rows for pattern.

Note: Knitting the knits and purling the purls means that you look at the stitch and knit what you see. Row 2, for example, would have you purling 4 stitches, then knitting 1, purling 1 and knitting 1.
