Here’s a combination of two timeless classics: the argyle motif and a red-and-white color scheme. Happily, by rendering argyle with the color-stranding technique, no bobbins are required.

The 22-stitch pattern repeat limits the instructions to medium size, though some size variation can be obtained by working at a slightly larger or smaller gauge. However, remember that both needles and yarn must be changed in that case. Thinner yarn + thinner needles = smaller size, while thicker yarn + thicker needles = larger size.
