|Sample knit with Butterfly Cotton, US Size 6 (Susan Bates Tipping Points)|
Even though this stitch creates a wavy look, you don't have to do anything special - just alternate knits and purls! And, this stitch also have a great back side! It looks like basket weave - you can see in the picture above.
The yarn I use in this video is Butterfly Cotton Yarn. I purchased this several years ago at Paradise Fibers - since then the only place I have seen it is at Romni Wools in Canada. Cascade Pima Cotton yarn is a nice substitute if you can't locate the Butterfly brand. Butterfly/Cascade Pima Cotton is a smoother, shinier cotton than Lily Sugar n Cream or the cotton yarn you usually find in craft stores, much better suited to wearable items in my opinion.

Repeat these 8 rows for an awesome fabric that has two nice sides!
