Something I realized while trying to learn the stitch is that there are multiple ways people make the stitch. I found youtube videos with working your piece with the RS (right side) facing at all times, working right to left, then left to right. I found vidoes with turning after each row...both give a similar look, though I prefer keeping the RS facing at all times. It gives a smoother more uniform look (IMO). Some have you work in both loops of the stitch, some have you work in the BLO (back loop only).
I found while creating this pattern that I had some choices to make. Choice one, I could work around my piece right to left, then work back left to right, or I could work my piece in a continuous round right to left. I chose the latter. I found it to feel more natural, though both ways give the same overall look. Choice two, I could work in both loops of the stitch, or I could work in the BLO, I chose both loops.
If you are familiar with the stitch, go with what you feel comfortable with. If you have never used this stitch, I would highly suggest taking a look at this video tutorial by Moogly, so you can at least get an idea for what each step will look.
I did take some extra photos trying to show some steps of the stitch. I hope you find them helpful!
