A really gorgeous knit, I saw a blanket a friend of mine had draped on her couch and she thought my fascination with its stitch pattern was funny, but I've finally found it! Quick question, by the end of this video the number of stitches has increased from 12 to 13, due to the yo at the end of the first row on the single stitch. How does one account for this?

I love how easy this is. It'd be gorgeous with a thinner yarn for summery items. Can't wait to give this stitch a try.
