Comments:  I'm trying to recreate a texture pattern I saw in a film, and thought this would be a good starting point.  I worked two pattern repeats with 4mm needles, went up to the 4.5mms for the next two repeats, and then dropped down to the 3.5mms.  The top horizontal ridges are made using pulled up stitches - first with 4 rows of stockinette, then with 6 rows.
