This is described in the chart as a "pique stitch" but I can't seem to find a visual guide, is there another name for it?

I may be completely wrong on this, but I find that some patterns just make up new stitches, or new names for them.  As long as they describe exactly how to do it, I don't worry about it.

Pique (pronounced: pick-kay) is a type of fabric that has slightly up & down tiny squares- sort of like if graph paper had texture. So a pique stich should look like an alternating up & down textural thing. I'm still a noob at crochet but I know my fabrics Smiley

Its actually slightly different than a puff stitch.
And its in my Crochet Stitch Bible.

I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to post a page from it on here. But if you want, I can take a pic of it and PM it to you.

Have you tried just working it out step-by-step? I find that sometimes I try to rush through a new stitch and when I slow down and literally do it step-by-step it actually works out.

I have done picot stitches before but I agree with those who said that this sounds more like a puff or popcorn stitch.

Well, this is a new one for me... sounds almost like an enhanced cluster stitch.
