Not like you want it.

You can start with two disks and create a stripe accross both disks.
Keep in mind that if one fails you will loose all your data!
Later on you can mirror disk one by *attaching* a disk to this vdev. But
this way you still have no redundancy. If the second disk/vdev fails,
you still loose all data. You need to *attach* a second disk to the
second vdev also. That way you can loose a disk per mirrored vdev. So
you will need 4 disks.
