I would like to note that I do not have any real claim to the pattern I just took the granny fav and added my own twist to it.
co = cast on
p1 = purl 1
k1 = knit 1
YO = yarn over
k2tog = knit 2 together
" " = repeat till told
2- k2, yo, k2
3- k2, yo, k3
4- k2, yo, k4
5- k2, yo, "k1, p1", k3
6-?- repeat last round till desired size.
7- k1, k2tog,yo, k2tog, "p1, k1" k3
Repeat 7 till 4 left on needle and bind off
* " " will not apply when there are 6 on the needle*
