Step 1: Cast On
Cast on the required number of stitches and divide them onto your needles. You'll need an even number of stitches for this pattern.
Step 2: Knit the First Row
Knit across the first row, making sure to keep your tension consistent throughout.

Row 1: *K2, P2, repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2: *P2, K2, repeat from * to end of row.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until the piece measures the desired length for the front of the cardigan.
