This pattern looks a lot more complicated than it is. It's actually easy and fast. The stitch creates vertical lines in the middle of the pattern, however it gives the appearance of the pattern being between the vertical lines.
The back is boring, so a reversible design should not be considered.
This stitch would make a great body for a light - medium weight sweater.
