Robo Stitch I - Stitch Sample

This is a very interesting and easy stockinette pattern, which requires a bit more attention to the knitting chart. Have you noticed the metal doors on the spaceships in the sci-fi movies and the way they're closing - this is where the name of this stitch comes from. See also Robo Stitch II.
