notation for knitting stitch topology

Here's another example of where I thought I was being clear, but not so much. I was trying to figure out how to express that a knit stitch is the same as a purl stitch.

My flash of insight about knitting, which may very well be obvious to most of the world, is that knitting is about the relationship between loops and loops. A loop is pulled through another loop, which creates two double-twists, which is what I was trying to express here, in June of 2005.
