Need help

Help I have done veryy little knitting before mostly crochet. And rly want to pick it up by starting with a sweater vest from one of my fav shows but I’m not sure what this stitching is can anyone identify it?Screenshot_20221101-152427

Welcome to KH!
This is a very effective pattern with columns of 3 sts in stockinette (knit on the right side, purl on the wrong side) alternating with a column of single sts knit on the right side, knit on the wrong side.
It’s similar to the pattern is the Bankhead hat.

Are you sure that’s a single stitch between the columns of stocking stitch? It looks like two stitches to me.

Good thought. It still looks like one to me (see the lower fold near the hem) but the original poster can check on a swatch and see if one or two is preferred here.

My first guess was (k3, p, ptbl, p). I thought I saw a twisted purl stitch.

VVV-^-VVV-^-VVV
VVV-^-VVV-^-VVV
VVV-^-VVV-^-VVV

Could the center ^ stitch be garter?

I’ll toss in a guess. Welted rib.

@GrumpyGramma great site, that www.knittingfool.com

Twin rib matches the purl rib but is off on the knit rib. While garter rib is off on the 1st & 3rd purl of the purl rib.

V = knit; ■ = purl (as read from the RS or public side)

I would adjust it as follows:
■V■VVV
■■■VVV
or
R1: k3, p3 × across.
R2: k, p, k, p3 × across.

[Image : above pattern is left purl rib upper circle. Other circles are other similar variants.]

Looking for this shape in the center purl on alt rows.

This question is getting free rent in my head. I wonder if it’s the WS of this pattern? I remembered you suggested a twisted purl, this one has a twisted knit on the RS so a twisted purl on the WS.

(ETA I’m waking up and might have worded that all wrong but my supposition that this could work but make WS the RS is what I meant to get across.)

That is the stitch in the middle of the purl rib.
I did a zoom in.

Been following this. I felt it looked like a section in a blanket I am working on. The pattern is calling it a seed rib stitch. Row1 RS is k across. Row 2 is p3 k1 repeat across to last 3 stitches, p3. Repeat row1 & 2 for pattern. I could be way off but sure looks similar to me.
