i think you could make this with tunisian. when it gets the the split, you could keep working half the stitches until both halves are long enough and then start stitching across the entire piece again at the other end.
No "Amazing texture stitch! Text is in Russian, but there are many more clear pictures. The stitch looks beautiful on either the knit or the purl side. I'm looking forward to trying this great technique." comment via
This is it, not hard its a knit row then a purl row and its the inside out of the normal look, fairly straight arms and a cowl like neck. Two strands of wool like we are doing with Maisies and Chaiyas Ravelry: Redy pattern by ANKESTRICK
