Rosette Stitch

Rosette Stitch is a very pretty, textured stitch.  I like how the wrong side of the fabric looks also.
This is the front of the fabric:

And this is the back:
This is a simple four row repeat, worked on an even number of stitches.  I think the edges look sloppy, so depending on what you are knitting, you may want to consider adding a border, or just an extra stitch on each side to slip at the beginning of each row.

Row 1: Knit all stitches (Right side)
Row 2: Purl 2 together, leaving stitches on the left needle; now, Knit the same 2 stitches together, dropping off the left needle
Row 3: Knit all stitches
Row 4: Purl 1, *Purl 2 together, Knit the same 2 stitches together (as in Row 2)*, Purl last stitch
Repeat these 4 rows for pattern

And here is the video.  Enjoy!
