Stitch Guide: Mrs. Hunter's Stitch

This is a fun stitch that can add a lot of interest to a field of knits.  It is said that this is a stitch that, that's right, Mrs. Hunter created.  Well whoever created this stitch it is one of my favorites.  This stitch isn't very elastic, and has a right and a wrong side, but it is good in items you don't need or want too much give.
