Granite Relief Sitch (multiple of 2 sts)
Note: the instructions are a generic pattern for creating this stitch pattern. For a single repeat, you'd only need two stitches (but you'd have a VERY narrow piece!) In the example shown, there are eighteen repeats of the stitch, so to make a swatch that looked the same, you need to cast on 36 stitches (16 x the 2 multiple.)
Row 1 (RS) Knit.
Row 2 K2tog across row.
