Can you identify this stitch? (etsy link)
This is just a beautiful stitch. I know I've seen it before somewhere but I can't identify it. I'll get my big Stitch Dictionary out but maybe one of you knows what it is by looking? It's so pretty I want to make one.

It almost looks like tunisian crochet to me. I'd love to know what stitch it is too! Looks very cozy.

Oh gee, I didn't notice she was selling the pattern. Will go back to see that. Thanks! Tunisian crochet hmmmm. I crochet also but I'm pretty sure this is knit.

That is gorgeous.

If you tilt your head so the right edge of the picture is the bottom, you can see the knit sts offset by a strand of yarn, in a checkerboard pattern.

Reminds me of something too, maybe the Chinese Waves Dishcloth?
http://www.maggiesrags.com/freedishcloth.htm

Just done with a heavier yarn, on fairly big needles.

It's kind of like a herringbone st and similar to the one on My So Called Scarf.

It is reminding me of the stitch used in this hat (ravelry link)

Actually, I just finished the girly version of that hat (Amanda hat pattern) and looking at my hat, I think if you skipped the first yos, you'd be pretty close, assuming the right side of the pic is the cast off edge.

So, I would try: (*psso = pass slipped stitch over BOTH the knit and the yarn over)
cast on even # of stitches, knit one row
row 1 slip, knit, yo, psso*; repeat to end
row 2 purl to end
repeat these 2 rows!

To me it looks like the linen stitch turned sideways with chunky yarn. The link is a pattern for a similar free pattern.

It looks like the herringbone pattern I looked at this morning, only rotated to the side.
