What's that stitch??
Hi there,

Wondering if anyone can help me identify this stitch and tell me how to recreate the texture.

Thanks!

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.

I have no idea, but I love it! I'll ask my knitting group if they have any idea.

Unfortunately the person who'd be most likely to know has had a medical issue in her family and hasn't been to the knitting group. Sorry!

Did you try posting it on Ravelry? Maybe in this group? Most people are nice on Rav, but occasionally someone isn't. Ignore it.

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.

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.

I was on Ravelry just now and there is a new test knit going on for "That Nice Stitch." There is no pattern link (yet) but it looks really similar. If you type That Nice Stitch in, it will come up.
