Comments: I <3 this yarn - I wish they hadn't changed it to the new version.  The new version is probably cheaper to produce, but the squooshy-ness just isn't the same anymore.   This stitch is pretty basic - might be good as a scarf or something (the back looks like slightly wonky reverse stockinette), but I'm not sure I'd like it in a garment.
