My squares for Jason

Made in my latest fave stitch...with frogging the first several times to get the gauge right, I decided to milk it for what it's worth and make two very comfy squares in the same stitch. I know, I could be more inventive. I really admire the squares everyone's turning out. It would have been nice to knit them up to Jason's music, though.

I'm more than happy to tell you the stitch pattern...I hope many will work with it. In the stitch cards my friend has, it was called Double Lace Rib. In the Vogue Stitchionary, it is simply Lace Rib. Its logic becomes plain fairly quickly, and it has a delicious squish after it's completed. Just do it!

Multiple of 6 stitches + 2.
Row 1: K2, (P1, yo, K2togtbl, P1, K2). Repeat parentheses to end.
Row 2: (P2, K1) across, P2.
Row 3: K2, (P1, K2tog, yo, P1, K2). Rep () to end.
Row 4: same as row 2.

Repeat these 4 rows.
Note: in row 3, the yo followed by the P1 comes out as if wrapping the yarn twice: once for the yo, and then bringing it fwd to purl.
