You will start by knitting the first two stitches, then purl the next two; then you will do 2, then 2 again and repeat these steps all across until you reach your last two stitches.
While it is quite easy to memorize this pattern, there are also many ways to interpret it on your own. For example, you could knit one stitch on the right needle on the next row so that it looks like “knit 1, purl 2” or use a different yarn color for each of the words. These interpretations are not only fun but also help you learn new techniques.
This popular pattern is made up of two rows of knitting and one row of purling. It is also known as the ‘worsted stitch’ and it has a knit side and a purl side because it alternates between the two same-direction yarn overs that form the first half of a right-leaning V-stitch.
