Just wondering if anybody could tell me what the raised V stitch is used on the Paintbox Clutch from knittingbag.com? - http://www.knittingbag.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/221
I saw it and think it would be great on something I'm playing w/ right now.

Those cubists were a bunch of squares.

Could they be normal knit stitches that are slipped a row or two to make them bigger? I'm not sure. If it is that, then you should look into "mosaic knitting." I know there was a knitty article on it a while back, and google will probably give you some stuff.

They do just seem like slipped stitches. Try slipping that stitch purlwise every other row and see how you like that. If you want them to be more stretched out, slip them twice before knitting them again.

Mosaic knitting refers specifically to the technique of creating colour patterns working one colour per row and slipping stitches in the contrasting colour.

They are slipped, but there probably is a yarn over to give the stitch enough yarn to span two rows.

The pattern is something along the lines of

[purl 4, yarn over, knit 5, yarn over knit 1, purl 4] = one repeat of the pattern

next row, [knit 4, drop yarn over, slip 1, drop yarn over, slip one, knit 4]

then, repeat the first row

Thanks for the advice guys!  I'll give it a shot!   Grin

It kind of just looks like a wide rib stitch(something like k8, p8), but it sticks out more because of the chunky yarn used.  it also looks like it might be done in a checkerboard layout for the whole purse.
