IS THE BASKET LOOP STITCH A REVERSIBLE PATTERN?

This Basket Loop design has ring shapes knitted with the Garter Stitch texture. They rest atop a background of the Stockinette Stitch.

This is not a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the design, but you can see that the wrong (back) side does not.
