Wow, that's really pretty.  It must just be a combo of basket weave and eyelet.

This is really a stab in the dark, but I remember in Vogue Knitting a year or two ago, there was this capelet thing that was done in a stitch where basically you cabled continuously.  It looked really cool, but it was kinda nuts labor-wise.  It was an Oscar de la Renta design.

it looks more like cabling to me, too (but I'm a relative newbie) or like this: http://www.kidsknits.com/woven_headband.htm

Every once in a while I see something here on Craftster that makes me sit up (literally), take a breath and say "Ohhh".  This was one.  I love that sweater!!   

The stitch pattern looks like a woven lattice (listed under "cable and crossed stitch fabrics" in my Reader's Digest "The Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches") but with YOs in the in-between areas to make it lace-y.  I know that I've seen a lace pattern like that somewhere, but can't remember where. 

Hmm... new obsession...

Yeah, maybe lattice is what I meant.  I suppose basket weave is done with single stitches.  But that's what I was thinking, Subloke. 

Here's the Lattice Stitch from my Mon Tricot:

Quote
Multiple of 6
Row 1:  * K 4, p 2 *
Row 2 and alt rows:  K the p st and p the k sts of previous row
Row 3:  * Sl 2 to cable needle and leave at back of work, k 2, k2 from cable needle, p 2 *
Row 5:  P 2, * sl 2 to cable needle and leave at back of work, k 2, k 2 from cable needle *, k 4
Row 7:  * P 2, sl 2 to cable needle and leave at front of work, k 2, k 2 from cable needle *
Row 9:  K 4, * sl 2 to cable needle and leavea t front of work, p 2, k 2 from cable needle, k 2 *, p 2

Repeat from row 3

From looking at this pattern, there are 2 stitches between each cable.  I suppose as you worked, you'd be able to figure it out.  You could just do a k2tog, yo instead of working the two stitches as normal.

do you think there are YO's between?  I was just assuming the yarn was a bit stretchy and it naturally laid that way with the stitch.

but i'm clearly not one to be making these evaluations....

Lothruin, I didn't mean to sound as though I was correcting you, I hope you didn't take it that way! 

I think you're right about the k2tog & yo's, I think I may have to try this when I get home tonight...  If I have success (with a swatch!) i'll post a pic.

Nono, Subloke.  Smiley  I just wanted to clarify.  If I wasn't already biting off more than I can chew with the anthropologie sweater and the Fendi bag, I'd try this one too.  I hope you DO give it a shot, because I'd love to know whether we were on the right track.

No prob!  I just wanted to clarify.  If people sometimes (often) take me wrong when they can hear and see me, it's so much more so in writing!  Smiley

I'll let you know what I come up with.  I have a few things i'm working on right now, but i keep putting them down to try out other stuff, so one more "other stuff" won't matter!  (mostly trying to keep motivated to finish the sleeves on a purely boring, purely functional cardigan for work.  (cold in office, can't feel fingers) )
