The Challenge is on!! AND ITS BEEN solved!!!
Hi everyone! I am sorry to start a new thread on this same thing, but couldn't get photos to upload to previous thread...but here is the issue -I am going crazy trying to find out this pattern. Everyone here at the yarn stores have tried and tried to figure this out and we are all stuck. I purchased this in New Zealand from a Saturday market where a lady was selling her hand knitted items. I ask her what stitch this is and from my memory, I thought she said knit the purls and purl the knits, well that is the seed stitch and that's not it. One side it looks like ribbing but the other side is totally different.
We have looked at the Brioche Stitch but that's not it either. If anyone has any idea, please please help!! If you want bigger pictures than I can post here in order to see the detail, let me know and I will be glad to email it to you...
Thanks so much!!

Great job on the sock by the way...I am addicted to socks also..I do see what you mean about it looking like that heel, but the heel is purl stitches on the other side and this isn't....dang it! Keep thinking though..you are on the right track! Thanks..

One side has ribbing and check out the first pic up above that show WS..it appears to be knitted in the row below or some kind of Brioche stitch...but there were about 10 us last week sitting at a yarn shop trying to figure this out..and it's definitely hand knitted.. I have every stitch book I could find from the library and its not there. The last thing I want to do is take it apart, but may have to resort to that..

Did you do this to BOTH sides? It sounds like it might work, but I didn't have time to try it. I'm DYING to find out what this stitch is.
