I've just learned how to knit after crocheting for two years and I was looking for nice stitch patterns when I ran across this:

http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/CastAwayCreation/4791609/Shep3_medium.jpg

Now the designer has categorized this as 'Crochet' but I'm fairly certain this is knitted, plus everything else she has designed is knitted.
I want to say it is either the Purl through the back loop stitch or the Slip knit yarn over pass stitch. But I can't really tell since I'm not exactly an experienced knitter.

Help an aspiring knitter out?  Smiley

Some people have taken to knitting with crochet hooks, so maybe she did that, so I do think I know how to do this with knitting needles. Wasn't the pattern available for download?

Hm you think so? I was thinking it kind of looks like it was loomed rather than knitted. I really have no clue I guess!
No, it's her personal pattern. I thought about messaging her to ask about the stitch pattern but she hasn't been active since September so I don't think I'll get a reply.

Yes, it's knit, though it's possible it was done as 'knooking' - knitting with a hook. But the ktbl would do it, alternating with a plain purl row. If you do it with a large enough needle, you don't need to make buttonholes, the stitches would be large enough to get a button through them, or between them.

The Fidget -http://www.onesheephill.com/fidget.html - uses twisted moss stitch, you could follow that for an idea of how many sts to use, though if you use a bulky, you'd want larger needles, 11 or 13s, a 9 is just too tight for a heavy yarn.
