This square looks nice on both sides. The original inspiration (rows 2-5) for this design was a Weave-It pattern called “Stripe Weave.” The pattern is very similar to another square called “Blackberries” (pattern awaiting typing).

To the best of my recollection, this is the first pattern I invented. It’s one of my favorites; I’ve woven it WAY MORE times than any other pattern. It looks the same on both sides which makes it a good choice for a blanket.

Looks different on each side (w/2 colors). This is a really cool pattern. I’ll have to add some more photos to showcase it. I’ve invented at least one variation too.
