Works on multiples of 3 plus 2 stitches.
Row one: Knit.
Row tow: Purl 2, *knit one through the back loop, purl 2. Repeat from * across.
Repeat these two rows for pattern.
I like the knit side as the front, but different stitch pattern books disagree, and some say the purl side is the front. Use whichever you like best--that's the fun of knitting!
