sel s – selvage stitch: always slip the first stitch purlwise, work to the last stitch, purl the last stitch.
Knit chain stitch pattern:
Cast on a multiple of 2 sts plus 2 selvage stitches.
Row 1: sel s, *p1, slip the next stitch holding working yarn in front – repeat from *, sel s.
Row 2: sel s, *k1, slip the next stitch holding working yarn in back – repeat from *, sel s.
Row 3: sel s, knit all stitches, sel s.
Row 4: sel s, purl all stitches, sel s.
You can stop at this point and start repeating the pattern from the Row1. I like when there is a bigger distance between chains, that is why I knit also Rows 5-6.
Row 5: sel s, knit all stitches, sel s.
Row 6: sel s, purl all stitches, sel s.
Repeat Rows 1-6 to form pattern.
