Well, OK, probably a better word would be “discovered”: in the centuries that people have been knitting, I’m sure I’m not the first person to do this combination of stitches. It’s pretty basic. But I can’t find out what the stitch may be called.
Does anyone recognize it?* Does it have a name?
I don’t knit to a pattern; I make up my projects as I go along. So I’m not very good at reading or writing patterns. But, in what is probably pretty much lay terms, the stitch is basically (this is circular, so all from one side):
row 1: knit 3 together, 2 yarnovers (repeat)
row 2: knit 1, purl the first yarnover, knit the second (repeat)
