Set-up Row: using color A, knit
Knit this set-up row 6 times (yes, this is just six rows of garter stitch). And now that that's done, we'll begin our main pattern, which is a strip of Stripes and Diamonds from page 70 of Barbara G. Walker's A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns, as well as some garter stitch. As a side note, the pattern might look long, but it's super easy to remember. So let's proceed as follows:

Knit rows 1 - 32 until piece measures at least 54", roughly, (mine measured about 59" at this point, and also stretched in blocking) and you've just finished row 2 of the pattern. Clip tail of your color B yarn and then knit six rows in garter stitch in color A. Bind off loosely, tuck in ends, and block.
