14 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) over pattern. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Cast on 88 (100) sts. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Rnd 1: *K2, p2; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 2: K1, *p2, k2; rep from * to last 3 sts, p2, k1.
Rep Rnds 1 and 2 until piece measures about 16 (18) in. (40.5 (45.5) cm) from beg. Bind off.

Weave in ends.
