Cast on a length to equal desired width in multiples of 2 + 2 edge sts.
Row 1 (right side): K1 (edge st), * yo, K2, pass the yo over the 2 K sts*, repeat from * to * ending with K1 (edge st).
Row 2: P across.

For best results in finishing, leave ends long and weave the ends through the work using a tapestry needle.
