The pattern is called Skippers Watch.
I’ve seen the resulting look on other pieces, so I thought it may be a common enough pattern to have a name.
I am having trouble with it. I accidentally added a stitch and didn’t notice until it was too late, so I unraveled a few rows and got my needle back in. I am sure I have the count right, and the yarn is facing the right way on the needle, but it keeps reversing the pattern (the rs and ws reverse, noticeably). I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong, and I don’t know how to describe it in a way I can Google a tutorial for correcting it. I thought maybe knowing the name of the stitch would help me figure it out.
