split files

Hi

I am using unix split command to split files

split -l 1000  new1.json s3211 -a 10

i now want to group two lines at a time when i do the split on the files.

line1
line2

line1
line2

i want to make sure that when i split lines, i do not have line 1 in file 1 and line 2 in file2 in the split command

i should use even number in the splits?
