Materials
About 100 yards worsted weight yarn
#8 needles, or size to get gauge
Gauge
4.5 sts per inch

BEGINNERS NOTE:  To slip a stitch, with yarn in front (wyif), insert the right needle, as if to purl, into the stitch on the left needle, but instead of purling, just slip that stitch off the left and onto the right needle.

ABBREVIATIONS
CO = cast on
k = knit
p = purl
p-wise = purl-wise
rep = repeat
sl = slip
st, sts = stitch, stitches
wyif = with yarn in front

DIRECTIONS
CO 44 sts.
Knit 4 rows garter st, i.e., knit every row.

Begin Pattern:
Keeping first and last 3 sts on each row in garter st as a border, knit center sts as follows:

Row 1 (WS):  k2, *p2, k2, rep from * across.
Row 2:  p2, *wyif, sl 2 p-wise, p2, rep from * across.

Rep these 2 rows until piece measures 9.5 inches from cast-on edge.
Knit 4 rows garter st.

Bind off, weave in ends, block to 10 inches square.
As soon as I have enough squares to join for a blanket, I will post pics!
