This is an unusual but fun looking pattern when completed. The original pattern I worked from states that both the right and wrong sides look alike on this stitch however, I found that the bobbles seemed to be more pronounced on one side which is the side I would consider the front. It is also the side shown in the photo.

Skill level: Intermediate

12 Stitch pattern repeat.
