to explore what the stitch might have been.

Given the difference in resolution between the two pictures of the stitches, I find it easier to see how they are related by squinting a bit. I do believe they are basically the same stitch.
The stitch I used was a very simple type of brioche: over an even number of stitches, (knit 1, knit 1 in the stitch below) all the way across. This is a one-row repeat, so the same row is repeated each row; For this striping, change yarn every 2nd row.
