    Pattern didn’t show with variegated yarn. I knit up a swatch using plain light colored yarn and was able to see pattern then.

    Thank you Johnny for posting the Rose stitch tutorial. I’m the one that asked you for it. I thought this stitch would be nice texture stitch and a good alternative to the seed or moss stitch but could never figure it out. Thanks to you now I can!
