This week's stitch pattern is no more complicated than any of the others but there are a few more rows.
There are now 48 stitches on the needle. Remember the 5 garter stitch border stitches on each edge.
Row 1: (right side) Knit
Row 2: K2, * p2, k2; repeat from * to end.
Rep the last 2 rows once more.
Row5: K1, * C2F, C2B; rep from * to last st, k1.
C2F = knit into front of 2nd stitch on needle,
then knit first st. slipping both sts off needle
at the same time.
C2B = knit into back of 2nd st on needle, then knit
first st. slipping both sts off needle at the same time.
Row 6: P2, * k2, p2; rep from * to end.
Row 7: Knit
Row 8: As 6th row. Repeat the last 2 rows once more.
Row 11: K1, * C2B, C2F; rep from * to last st., k1
Row 12: As 2nd row.
Rep these 12 rows 3 times, then work Rows 1 and 2 again.
Work the separator section:
Knit 6 rows this time in garter stitch, decreasing 1 stitch (by knitting 2 stitches together) somewhere in the middle of the last row. (47 stitches total)
