How to knit an Easy Two-row repeat pattern

In today’s tutorial, I’m sharing how to knit an easy two-row repeat pattern, great for scarves.

The only techniques required are knit and purl stitches, so there is no need to increase, decrease, slip, or cross stitches… exactly as my doctor prescribed 🙂

So it is ideal not only for those who have experience but also for beginners.


Well, if you are a veteran, I’m sure you’ll agree with me that from time to time we need something easy that allows us to watch our favorite series while making a lovely garment.

I’m a natural multitasker, just like you!

And if you are just starting to knit, this kind of pattern that combines the simplest steps in knitting will make your journey more enjoyable, no doubt about it!

It reminds me of the Double Garter Rib stitch that we practiced a while ago, but the pattern is much more elaborate… and sooo pretty!

Also, since both sides of the work look spectacular, we can say that it’s a reversible stitch; furthermore, you can decide which side you want to be the right side of your project.

Finally, apart from being mainly a stitch to knit scarves, it is true that you can use it for cowls, blankets, hats, and even sweaters.

In addition, its vertical design makes it pretty versatile, so it will also work for cushions, placemats, and table runners.

Without further ado, grab your needles and some wool or cotton, and let’s knit something adorable 😉

The odd rows form the right side of the work

There are no edge stitches included. Add one on each end in case you like to have them.

CO multiples of 10 + 3; i.e.: 10 * 2 = 20 + 3 = 23 stitches.

1º and every odd row (RS): P2, *K3, P3, K3, P1*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, P1

2º and every even row: K1, *K1, P1, K1, P1, K3, P1, K1, P1,*. Repeat from * to *, to last 2 st, K2.

These four rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.

When finished BO working each as it presents after a row 1 (WS).
