The pattern is knit over 4 rows.
Stocking stitch is knit as follows:
Row 1 and all other uneven rows - Knit
Row 2 and all other even rows - Purl
However, the pattern is not entirely based on the true stocking stitch.
Interestingly, in row 2 you will be decreasing your stitches and in row 3, you will be increasing the stitches again.
Also these 2 rows create the ridge and little whole in the pattern.

MULTIPLES OF 2
Cast on multiples of 2 stitches - my sample shown is worked over 30 stitches.
Stitches should not be counted after the 2nd row.
1st Row (right side): Knit;
2nd Row (wrong side): P1 *K2tog; rep from * to last st, p1;
3rd Row: K1 *knit into front and back of next st; rep from * to last st, k1;
4th Row: Purl;
Repeat the pattern (these 4 rows) until your work is the desired length.
