Dark graduates to light, in this simple yet interesting take on the zig-zag. Knit center out in the round, there is no need to worry about matching cast-on to bind-off since you’ll be binding off all stitches in one fell swoop! Follow the suggested striping sequence or make up your own for a totally different look!
