Figure eight stitch on an Authentic Knitting Board Tadpole loom. Creates a lovey double sided fabric - cross stitch on one side and stockinette on the other. The yarn is Misty Alpaca Hand Painted Chunky in Pico.
The ribboned stockinette is an easy reversible stitch created with simple knit, purl and slip stitches. It got its name from the horizontal lines of yarn running through the right side rows. This stitch is remarkable also because its "wrong" side can be seen by many as more beautiful than the right side.
