Björsbo Stitch  (Finnish Stitch 1+1, plaited edge) 

UO/UOU F1  (video)

In Finland this stitch has been used in Räisälä (Carelian Isthmus) (personal communication 3/2015)
In Westman's book this nalbinding stitch is Variant 3, from Björsbo (Sweden).

Björsbo Stitch is like Oslo Stitch, but at the end of the stitch push the needle over
the needle yarn.
