Sample of dimple knitting stitch in pale-blue cotton yarn

I found this pattern in the Encyclopaedia of Knitting and Crochet for Blocks, Blankets and Throws by Luise Roberts. It’s a reversible stitch pattern using just knit and purl stitches – might work well for a scarf in chunky wool.

The stitch pattern repeats over 6 stitches and 10 rows.

Rows 1 and 2: K3, P3

Row 3: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1

Rows 4 and 5: K3, P3

Rows 6 and 7: P3, K3

Row 8:  P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1

Rows 9 and 10: P3, K3

Here’s the reverse side (very similar, yes?):
