Createing a Soft Raid 10

For creating a soft Raid 10, would this work?

mdadm -C md0 -l=0 -d=2 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1
mdadm -C md1 -l=0 -d=2 /dev/sda2 /dev/sdb2

mdadm -C md2 -l=1 -d=2 /dev/md0 /dev/md1

I guess it would work, but for Raid 10, you need 4 disks. You need think about what happens if you lose for example sda. I think you would lose the data. You usually make Raid 1 first then Raid 0.
