I’m knitting socks with heel flaps made with this stitch pattern: k1s1 on RS, purl on WS. I’m intrigued by it! I really like the appearance of it and I’m curious as to whether I could knit a whole sweater with it. It would probably be more like a coat as the resulting fabric is so thick!
What else is it used for? Does it curl up like stockinette, or could it be used for edgings on collars, cuffs etc? Is it good for knitting warm hats and mittens?
Oh, and is there a name for this stitch??
