Help id the pattern

Looks like stockinette st on one side but the flip side looks somewhat like honeycomb. I have been searching for hours without any luck. TIA

Hi and welcome!
Can you post a photo of the pattern now?
The description sounds like it could be honeycomb brioche:

Thank you for sending this link…wish I could say “that’s the one!” I will try to upload a photo tomorrow. Now, I’m wondering if it was machine made. Very unusual.

How flexible is the fabric. That sounds like a description of some Tunisian crochet.
