Today's stitch is a Scandinavian stitch, it's an alteration on block stitch with some squares enlarged and others squashed, it makes a sort of block-y cross rib nice for sports wear and it's very easy to knit.
Swatch is as follows - 4ply - 2.5mm needles - 32st x 42st - Longtail CON - Surprisingly Stretchy COFF
Pattern for working flat:
CON - multiple of 6st + 2

Fun fact my favourite casualty character (although I must admit I dont watch it religiously) is Dr blonde although he's gotten a bit emo since his brother got stabbed by a rascist. A quickie today so if you don't mind I'm off because I want my idiot brother to read this post. Happy Knitting!
