Very simple pattern to follow as it only has two different rows that you alternate between. Has a very clean look to it and holds it shape well. This would be a fun pattern to use to make a patchwork afghan. Make a bunch of squares in two or more colors and sew them together with a yarn needle. You could alternate the direction of the squares as you stitch them together.
