S.O.S (suss out stitch)

albert's picture

I am trying to figure out how to do this wheatear stitch. All I have to go by is this photo. I am having great lack of success. Anyone willing to take a whack at it and spare me a psychotic break? A better image can be found on Ravelry at www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/columbia. I don't know how to post a live link- I'm still using one of those old coal-fired computers. Thanks, guys.
