Thanks SO MUCH everyone. Loved having the links to the pictures and the threads. These photos are all different than the first one I saw - which was working with a ribbon type “yarn.” These, however, have opened up my eyes to all kinds of possibilities!!
Now I have a name for it - elongated stitch (or also one I like the “intentional dropped stitch)!
I am SO excited!!
P.S. Maybe I’ll even be able to show my Mom something new with this stitch
(and she’s been knitting for close to 50 years)!!
Edited to add: And thanks for being able to decipher my very obscure description!
