This pattern repeats every 4 rows. For the first pattern row, knit the first stitch.

Knit into the row below by picking up the first loop below the needle.

Wrap the yarn around the needle, pull through, and slip off as a normal knit stitch.

Repeat steps 2-4 until you have one stitch left. Knit the last stitch.

Second pattern row: knit the first stitch.
