Has anyone seen this stitch before?

Hi,
When I was a younger, over 30 years ago, my mother had some sweaters made for me and my sisters. I found a picture of it, but I just want to do the part that is under the arm. Does anyone know or have they seen this stitch before?
I want to make an afghan with that stitch. I have the pattern, but when I ask people who knit they just tell me to knit it. I don't want to start cabling.
Thanks in advance.
Ellen :-P

It looks like some kind of popcorn or bramble stitch. If you have the sweater pattern, you can just use the sts that make up that part for the afghan.

Thanks for getting back to me.
It's not a popcorn stitch. I made the picture detail bigger. For some reason, it doesn't scan to well. I have to look at the pattern more closely even though I'm not to good with patterns.

Thanks again!

That's a little easier to see - it may be a moss/seed st or double moss stitch.

I have compared it to both the moss stitch(shown in green) and a version of the popcorn stitch(shown in blue):



The sweater stitch looks more square....it has me stumped :hmm:

There's 2 kinds of moss stitch. One that's k1 p1 on 1 row and knit the purls, purl the knits on the next. And one that's k1 p1 for 2 rows, then do the opposite on the next 2 rows.

It's neither of those stitches. It is more like squares that's why I want to do an afghan with it. I fell in love with it when I was younger.

Try k2 p2 for 2 rows, then reverse and p2 k2 for 2 rows. That's called the box stitch or double moss and may be what you want. CO about 12 sts and see how it looks.

I think you're right Suzeeq. The pattern has that 'diagonal march' of stitches as you go up the rows that you get with moss stitch.

I agree here Suzeeq. I think this is double moss. The detail is too large to be single, but it definately has that look.
