Ok you guys. Now that you've totally embarrassed me.... I'm not sure you're right. First, the picture's not good enough to really tell - sorry, but it's from the album shot on Amazon, and if they can't get it any better, I don't think I can. And second, a kitchen towel would be too short to wrap around a neck, tie, and go over the shoulder and down the front. Maybe it's fabric, but looking through my stitch pattern books, it looks like it could be several different stitches, done with fairly thick yarn. For example, mock houndstooth stitch, bicolor tweed or granite stitch, woven bicolor stitch, bicolor hurdle stitch, etc. Then on the other hand, if I can't tell the stitch, DS sure won't be able to, so if it just looks similar, I can blame the blurry picture.
