I've taken to staring at people's knitwear!
Recently a friend's cardigan had a beautiful stitch that I've now spent HOURS searching for as either a basketweave or herringbone stitch.
Imagine if you will... tilted upright rectangles of stockinette that sortof interlock... best I can describe is a herringbone pattern of narrow basketweave.
Anyone know what I'm talking about?? Better yet, anyone know how to knit it?!
Maybe entrelac, as shown in this tutorial, go to the bottom for what the finished piece looks like. wolfandturtle.net/Yarnpath/index.php/Yarnpath/comments/all_aboard_the_entrelac_express/
