This pattern stitch was a PITA to figure out. As a matter of fact, it was such a pain (inserting needle from the top down into the head of the stitch ... yahblatz, yahblatz) that I chucked the stitch. I swatched it with Zodiac and a carrier, fooled with the pattern for about an hour, and scared DH and the dog, because it wasn't pretty. I grabbed a BW, switched yarns and looked for something that was a multiple of 6+1. All in all, someone thought I was going to work six rows of true lace for something that looked like a buttonhole. I wish I'd thought to use the one-row button hole, because all that patterning did not pay off in this project. Now I'm working in Berroco Air, and doing a nice, easy Crest of the Wave variation!
