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. Work first row as follows: Knit 2 stitches, cast off the next 12 stitches (= loop), knit 2 stitches = 4 stitches on needle. The next row is worked as follows: Knit 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 COLOUR ALTERNATIVE-1 or -2 - see description above. When you have worked 2 rows with 2 strands red, cast off loosely (to avoid a tight cast-off edge you can cast off with a ½ size larger needle).
