    I agree–what an effective way to use a variegated yarn.

    This would be really great in a wool jacket.

    How cool, this totally looks like crochet to me. :)

    Did this take forever to knit?

    Lisa, no, not at all. The stitch does compress vertically by about half, but knitting itself is totally brainless. The swatch you see above, for which I used worsted-weight yarn, took no more than half an hour to finish.

    I recently did this stitch in 3 different colors. It is very lovely, almost like little rosebuds. Very easy to knit, but be sure to keep your tension even with the slip stitches.

    Thanks for the info about the stitch compressing – I think that should be in the description or something, before the comments – it’s valuable to know.
