I can't quite figure out this cool snakeskin print knit I got from G Street Fabric's $3/yard collection.

Here's the right side:


But the wrong side seems unusual for a jersey. It's knitted so there is a distinct diamond pattern on the back:


What kind of a knit is this?

The fabric definitely stretches sides to side. It seems to stretch lengthwise too. I am planning to make a long-sleeve T-shirt with it. Is it appropriate for Silhouettes #195? This calls for "all-way stretch knits only."

you want the print going up and down. not across.
That would make one cool sweater set.
