So I have a sweater, and I'm trying to figure out what stitch it is.  It generally looks like stockinette, but occasionally, there is a stitch that appears to be set inside the stitch in the row above it.  (If that makes sense.)  From the back, it almost looks like there are diagonal pieces woven in throughout.  Since it was purchased (and not hand-made) it is possible that it was machine knit. 

When I have access to a digital camera, I'll post pictures.  But I just wanted to see if anyone had any guesses or ideas...

It could be Tunisian Crochet (see:http://www.stitchdiva.com/custom.aspx?id=42 for Tunisian Simple Stitch)...or possibly some "you can only do that on a machine" kind of stitch...if you post pics I'll be able to tell if it is Tunisian of not.

Wow, it may just be that the antihistamines are fogging my brain right now, but I can't figure out that diagram  at all...you think that can be produced in hand-knitting?

The diagram rather looks like a mistake I make a lot when I knit quickly... instead of just picking up the loop as your normally would, stick your needle underneath where it'd normally go and catch the stitch below it as well.  Then knit it as your normally would.

Does that make sense?  Sorry, I'm not so good at explaining.
