Chinese translation: why coffee beans of course

English term or phrase: Complex Walk (Bean)
Again, this is a stitch type/style.

In my "A Modern English-Chinese Apparel Dictionary", "walking stitch" = 走步线迹. Does that lead me anywhere?

What can "Bean" possibly mean????

*sigh* Can everybody stick to wearing cotton only???

Chinese translation:why coffee beans of course
Explanation:
Specialty stitches are digitized in the same manner as most line stitches. One of the most familiar stitches, and one that is available on all commercial systems, is the bean stitch, so named due to its resemblance to a coffee bean.

Its translation I do not know.
