Bee Stitch in Two Colors

Sample knit with Debbie Bliss Amalfi on US Size 7 needles

This is just like single color Bee Stitch, except you will use a second color.  Very easy!

K1B is knit into the stitch below.  You may need to pull gently on your fabric to get into the stitch below - take a look at the next stitch on your left needle.  Then look right below it, and you will see the stitch below.  This is what you want to knit into.

Multiple of 2 + 1

Cast on with A
Knit two foundation rows.  This is the only time you will work these two rows.  After the foundation rows have been knit with color A, you will switch to your second color and begin the pattern as below.

Begin pattern:
Row 1: (B) K1 *K1B, K1*
Row 2: (B) Knit
Row 3: (A) K2, K1B *K1, K1B* end with K2
Row 4: (A) Knit

Repeat these four rows for the pattern.

Here is the video.  Happy Knitting, and Enjoy!

In the written instructions, you didn't mention how the alternation of colors is worked. Is it every two rows? Work 2 rows in pattern, then switch back to the first color?

The (A) and (B) notations in the instructions indicate the color changes.
