Row 16: [P2, K2 twice] *P3, K2, P2, K2* P2 {repeat row 5} {k the k’s and p the p’s}
Repeat rows 1-16 until desired length.

If you’re not adding a border, to BO I recommend ending on a row 15 and BO in the row 16 pattern.

This is a beautiful stitch and lays nice and flat and has a nice squish to it!

I think it would make a lovely scarf, and without adding a border :)
