Definition:

Works on an even number of stitches.

Row 1: Knit.

Row 2: Purl.

Row 3: *Knit 1, purl 1. Repeat from * across.

Row 4: *Purl 1, knit 1. Repeat from * across.

Repeat these four rows for pattern.

An alternative way to work this pattern is to knit rows 1 and 3, purl rows 2 and 4 and knit the alternating knit and purl rows as rows 5 and 6. Both are attractive.
