A no longer “mystery pattern”

A Ravelry post  was followed up by my first , untested interpretation of the repeat here the center stitch selection in center of knit blocks is eliminated partial repeat for punchcards electronic repeat X 2

reviewing idea after a few days I realized the repeat should be edited; orange squares need to be knit stitches

Slip <-> creates floats to be hung on center non selected needles of blocks of 5. Before next row is knit, bring that needle out to hold to insure groups of loops  in needle hook will knit off with next carriage pass.

When I sampled this repeat, I decided three all knit rows between loops were too many, and this became my final repeat, tiled X 4 (suitable for punchcard)

multiple tuck loops, side by side  do not even stay in hooksslip stitch sample, purl side a bit closer knit side
