Fascinating..

A k1p1 pattern repeat will hide the purl sts, while a k one row, p one row pattern repeat (eg garter stitch) will hide the knit rows.. Just started thinking about it, and can't really get it - why is it so? What is really the difference between a vertical and a horizontal k1p1 rib pattern? Or even better - why is the difference so huge? Garter stitch reminds no one of a k1p1 rib, still that is kind of what it is..

An unfaithful knitter I am these days. I'm kind of tired of knitting with 2mms, so now I've cast on for Zephyr Style's Rusted Root, using Rowan's Cashsoft DK and those wonderful 4.5 mms!
