I googled 'farrow stitch knitting' and found this for starters.

row 1 (K2,P1) to the last stitch, K1
row 2 P1, (K2,P1) across
row 3 (K2,P1) to the last stitch, K1
row 4 P1, (K2,P1) across

( the p1 in the even rows makes your stitches jog over one ... making your pattern) Only do the P1 once at the beginning ...then K2,P1 to the end

Be sure your row is a multiple of 3 plus 1
