Here is a pattern stitch that is great to use for knitting scarves, washcloths, blanket or even pillows cases. This is a knit and purl pattern stitch that is similar to the seed stitch. However, it is performed in a 2 x 2 pattern stitch instead of a 1 x 1 pattern stitch.
Cast on multiples of 4 stitches plus 2 extra stitches. Work a 4 x4 swatch gauge before knitting your garment.
