IS DOUBLE FLECK A REVERSIBLE PATTERN?

This vintage Double Fleck Stitch has vertical columns on a stockinette background with a pop of double purl textures. Looking at it from afar, you can see that the two purl stitches create a diagonal texture, as well.

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.

DID JOHN STAMOS KNIT THIS DOUBLE FLECK STITCH?

Have you seen the television commercial where John Stamos confidently rattles off that he knitted his cozy scarf with the “double fleck pattern with a reverse garter stitch?” You probably wondered if that really was the pattern. Nope! It looks like it may have been the Double Stockinette Stitch, but not this Double Fleck. Sorry, Johnny.

Oh, and if you’re wondering what’s a reverse garter stitch? It’s simply the Garter Stitch but rather than knitting every row, you purl every row.
