We're halfway home! And not a minute too soon since we actually saw a TV advertisement for Christmas this week! They get earlier every year.
This week's offering comes with a charmingly old world spelling ... Chequerboard ... lest you need further proof that our stitch dictionary is really quite old. It's an attractive pattern and not very taxing at all to knit. Manly though, right? Cassie seems to like it.
There are now 46 stitches on the needle. Remember the 5 garter stitch border stitches on each edge.
Row 1 (Right Side): k4 * p4, k4; repeat from * to end.
Row 2: p4 * k4, p4; repeat from * to end.
Row 3: same as Row 1
Row 4: same as Row 2
Row 5: same as Row 2
Row 6: same as Row 1
Row 7: same as Row 2
Row 8: same as Row 1
Repeat these 8 rows, 4 times. (32 rows)

Work the separator section:
Knit 7 rows this time increasing 1 stitch (by knitting into the front and back of one stitch) anywhere in the middle of the last row. The last row is a right side row. (47 stitches total)
