Icelandic Stitch?


#1

On a recent trip to Iceland I came across this stitch in the handknitting association store, unfortunately they had no pattern nor were they aware of the stitch itself. Does anyone recognized the stitch or have an idea how I might work it out from the picture? Thanks!

Welcome!
You might play around with this stitch. It’s not quite right but have a similar idea.
