Arabic Block

This is a slip-stitch adaptation of an ancient Arabic design. The method here has a touch of novelty; in order that the same strand of yarn can be used all the way across each row, the left-hand half of the pattern is always two rows behind the right-hand half. Thus a positive-and-negative checkered effect is achieved, and the blocks of color can be alternated without picking up new strands of yarn in mid-row.

Multiple of 54 sts plus 2. Colors A and B.

Cast on with A and knit one row.

Note: On all right-side rows, si all sl-sts with yarn in back.
