Help identifying stitch? (update: possible solution self found... no idea if im right or what its called)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!  I would love some help trying to identify this stitch.  It was a project started by my late grandmother and I wanted to finish it in her place.  Unfortunately, my attempts so far look nothing like the rest of the work.  If anyone could help me out I would be very appreciative. 


If you need more info, Im not sure what more I can provide but I can try my best. I have attached photos of both sides of the work where it was left off.

It might be something like working SC in the front loop only, or alternating back loop and front loop.  Back loop only makes ribbing, but if I recall one or both of the first 2 makes a ridge like that.

Edit: link to  Front Loop Only , not quite the same.  

Edit again with swatch alternating rows done front and back loop...not it either.  The back side of this has no ridges.

It might be a slip stitch pattern, or a mix of SC and slip stitch rows.  There used to be a site of slip stitch patterns but I'm not finding it now...

So i think i may have found the solution? 

After closely looking at the stitches and dissecting a few of them, its seems it was a [YO, insert hook into loop, YO, pull through all three].  Being mostly self taught via the internet Im not sure what this stitch is called or how to describe where the hook was inserted in "official" terms.  I can try to get some pictures of it if anyone needs to see it to verify.
