Well… it’s new to me anyway
and I can’t find it in my library.
I’m going to call it the Split Stitch for now (later edit: I’ve changed the name to Vee Stitch). You do it by hooking through the front vertical bar, then the back vertical bar of the next stitch.
I’ve shown that here.
The bars that I’m snagging are orange
and the bars that I’m creating are blue-green
and there are extra blue-green wraps on the hook:
I find the basic (foundation) stitch even more annoying than the knit stitch, because I use relatively small hooks and it becomes tight and curled. That’s shown on the bottom here, with the Extra 2-YO version above it.
As usual, I’m switching the yarn color at the beginning of the return pass.
The 1st interesting version is the Extra YO Split Stitch:
The coolest thing, though is when you alternate the versions.
This is the Split Stitch alternated with the Extra YO Split Stitch:
And this is the Split Stitch alternated with the Extra 2-YO Split Stitch:
I haven’t tried alternating the Extra YO Split Stitch with the Extra 2-YO Split Stitch, but I expect that one to be very cool, as well.
