Book: Charted Designs: A Third Treasury of Knitting

Notes: A reversible stitch. Knit in a fine yarn on large needles it’s lacier, but still has an accordion-like effect (see pics 3 & 4). However, as Walker notes, in a dk-worsted weight like Fixation and knit on small needles, it has the elasticity of regular ribbing. It has to be stretched or blocked to see the lacy effect. Relaxed, it is very compact and dense. See second pic.
