|Sample knit with worsted weight yarn on US Size 6 needles|
This stitch makes a tight, dense fabric - on one side. The other side is like seed stitch. What a great scarf this stitch would make! You can use larger needles than called for on your ball band and still get a nice solid fabric.
This stitch is one of the first stitch patterns I made a video for, and I thought it was time to do a new, clear HD video.
I have also seen this stitch called Fabric Stitch or Sugarplum Stitch. However, this shouldn't be confused with another "Fabric Stitch" you may see, that is worked differently. Same name, different stitches - it happens often. Whatever you call it, have fun knitting something with it!

Stitches should be slipped purlwise
