Pearl Stitch

Sample knit with Patons Classic Wool (hand dyed) on US Size 10 needles

Super simple stitch, and great for those who don't mind purling.

I found this in an old book.  Old books sometimes referred to purl as pearl, and this was called "Pearl Stitch"; the instructions also stated to 'pearl' the stitches.  But, I thought it confusing to  label this Purl Stitch, so I just left it spelled as I found it.  

These edges are awfully sloppy, even with the extra stitch on each side; I'd add a few more to neaten things up.

Multiple of 2 + 2

Row 1: K1 *P1, Sl 1 wyif* K last stitch
Rows 2 and 4: Purl
Row 3: K1 *Sl 1 wyif, P1* K last stitch

Repeat these four rows for the pattern
