I have been using this stitch for several years and I love the way it looks when done. It always takes me a bit to get used to doing it when I haven't for a while. You have to be very mindful of your tension. This is not a stitch that works well for you if you crochet too tightly. I made a hat with it today and my finger tips are sore because I started out too tight.

I guess I am never too old to learn something new. I have been crocheting for over 50 years and never tried this. I really like the fact that it looks like knitting. It will give me another choice when I am working on an afghan for the border. Thank you for sharing this.
