This one is so simple but very effective, especially with the new variegated yarns. It’s my new favorite stitch! You get neat squares of color instead of stripes or blocks. The stitch is also very cushy and would make a wonderful baby afghan. I’ve made you a square as an example. You will find it fun to work and fun to look at!
