Insert 1 marker thread in middle stitch (= in yarn over).
ROW 1 (= wrong side): Knit.
ROW 2 (= right side): Knit to stitch with marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (stitch with marker thread), 1 yarn over, knit to end of row (= 2 stitches increased). On next row (wrong side) knit yarn overs to leave holes.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 to finished length.

When square measures 6 x 6 cm / 2 3/8'' x 2 3/8" change to 1 strand red + 1 strand white (= 2 strands).
When square measures 17 x 17 cm / 6 3/4" x 6 3/4'' change to 2 strands red.

The piece is worked back and forth. Start by working a loop. then work down and outwards in a square.

Cast on 16 stitches with 2 strands red and needle size 6 mm / US 10. Work first row as follows: Knit 2 stitches, bind off the next 12 stitches (= loop), knit 2 stitches = 4 stitches on needle. The next row is worked as follows: Knit 2 stitches, 1 yarn over, knit 2 = 5 stitches on needle (the yarn over is knitted twisted on next row to avoid a hole).
Continue with DOMINO SQUARE according to COLOR ALTERNATIVE-1 or -2 - see description above. When you have worked 2 rows with 2 strands red, bind off loosely (to avoid a tight bind-off edge you can bind off with a ½ size larger needle).

Hvor mange masker er det når man skal felle av.

Hei Anne-Beate. Det kommer litt an på strikkefastheten din. Du skal felle av når arbeidet måler 17 cm, og med angitt strikkefasthet er det etter ca 55 omganger. Du starter med 5 masker og øker 2 masker hver annen omgang, så du vil da ha ca 60 masker på pinnen når arbeidet måler 17 cm. God fornøyesle.
