new stitch!

My host-mom has this sweater with these beautiful stitch panels that I couldn't figure out for the life of me, so I took some pictures and posted them in LJ Punk_knitters to ask for help, then ended up stumbling across exactly what it was by myself anyways :P
It's Brioche stitch, and it's fabulous :) and I'm going to incorporate it into my next design :)
Easy, beautiful, reversible: what else could you ask for in a stitch?

The stitch on the sweater:


and here's how you do it:
Row 1: * Yo, sl 1, k1; repeat from *. (Note: When you slip stitches, insert the tip of the needle as to purl. See details below. Also, notice the yo slants diagonally over the slipped stitch.)
Row 2: * Yo, sl 1, k2 tog, repeat from *. (Note, when you k2 together, you will slip knit the slipped stitch and the yarn over of the previous row.)
Repeat Row 2.

Hi there RedThread. I was surfing the search engines for purse and handbag related websites using the keyword monogrammed purse and found your awesome page with the title new stitch!. I am looking for ideas on how to improve my own site using different keywords and was amazed how easy it was to find your site using the keyword monogrammed purse. Perhaps we could do a link exchange at some point. Anyway, thanks for your time and I’m glad I found your site.
