The wrong side of your knitting, will form your front side.
I knit the sample using 32 sts over 48 rows.
Knit as follows:-
Row 1(ws) - purl
2nd Row - knit
3nd Row - purl
4th Row - k1, *(k5, turn, purl 5) x 3 = 6 rows in stocking stitch on these 5 sts, k10; rep from *to end, k1
5th Row - purl
6th Row - knit
7th Row - purl
8th Row - k6, *(k5, turn, purl 5) x 3 = 6 rows in stocking stitch on these 5 sts, k10; rep from *to last 6sts, k6
Repeat these 8 rows until your work is the desired length.
