I've been making this cowl:
http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=4871&cps=21191 at a nice leisureley pace on my morning commute. Having never done a shaker rib before, and with a fairly small photo, I wasn't sure how it should look. I also have a bad habit of not reading patterns thoroughly enough before I begin, causing me no end of troubles!
As such, rather then doing a p1, k1BELOW, I enthusiastically embarked on a pattern of p1, k1BACK. This has created a really lovely, raised sort of twist on one side, and a flat plait-like pattern on the other. According to my more recent Google imaging, this is most definiteley NOT a shaker rib. I love the look of the twists for something like a cowl, so that's fine, but I would quite like to know what it IS. Any ideas?
Just a quick (not-very-good) mobile phone snap of the twists:
