How to Knit Two-Row Stripes
Two-row stripes are easy to knit and can be applied to any pattern. A baby sweater knit in two-row stripes has a nautical look, for example. You can make two-row stripes knitting flat or in the round with these directions, which use two colors (color A and color B):
1With color A, cast on stitches.
Cast on the number called for in the pattern that you’re making.
2Work 2 rows with color A.
Follow your pattern.
3Drop color A and start knitting with color B.
Don’t cut color A; just leave it hanging.
4Work 2 rows with color B.
Again, follow your pattern for how to work these rows.
5Drop color B and pick up color A.
Don’t cut color B.
