If it helps at all, the knitter is Bulgarian. I asked her if she could tell me what stitch pattern it is, but she didn't know and said that her grandmother had helped her with this pattern. I asked if she'd be willing to walk me through the stitches, but with the language barrier she didn't think it would make sense.
Others have suggested bamboo stitch and ringlet stitch, but neither look quite right to me.
The knit stitches look a little different from what I'm used to seeing. You said she's Bulgarian, I wonder if it's something to do with a different style of knitting, maybe Eastern Europen, making ringlet stitches look different because of the way she worked them.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper

I spent some time looking at thumbnails of stitches on knittingfool.com, I wasn't able to identify anything that quite looked like your stitch. You may want to look, I was looking at stitch patterns that had a multiple of 2 stitches. Hope you are able to find out what the pattern is.
