At 15 you say you have 20 stitches, you have 26

Ah yes! You're right. I did do four repeats instead of only three! Nice catch.

Im a beginner and like this stitch and I was wondering once I cast on my stitches do I just start with Row 1 and use that as my wrong side? Or do I do a line of knit first lol I really dont know...

Hi there! I always start with the first row of the pattern - but certain stitches can be a little tricky on the first row and I find it easier to work a plain knit row first, then start the stitch pattern.

Isabel there is a link at the top of the blog with info on converting stitches for circular knitting.

'Mommy! Are you working??". So cute. :-) And a great stitch, too. I'm going to use it as one of the squares of a quilt I'm making. Thank you!

Is it stretchy, could it be used like traditional ribbing, like the brim of a knit hat
