I learned this stitch from my mom, and it was such a simple instruction that got stick in my brain. I love the texture it has and how different it looks with the yarns I've knitted using it. I called textured stitch, some clients have told me it's the simple rice stitch or just rice stitch.
Using 1 Skein of Monona Yarn and 6 mm. knitting needles made this skinny scarf that's 10 cm wide and 194 cm long
