Comments Made About This Stitch Pattern

  •  I first saw this stitch in Adventures in Knitting by Barbara Aytes, circa 1960

     

    Then I saw it show up in a couple of patterns on ravelry - one of the designers cited Aytes and her book, the other did not.

    I have used this stitch to make a lacy stole.. a bit time consuming but well worth it!
