This stitch looks intricate but in fact it is an easy one. Every row is worked with one color and there are even no purl stitches to worry about. Texture and color pattern created by this stitch will look great on hats, scarves (the pattern is reversible), cowls, mittens, socks or any bigger project like a sweater, cardigan or blanket.

You can also work according to the chart below. Pattern repeat is marked by red frame.
Note: the chart depicts stitches in right side rows from right to left (that is, your first stitch in right side row will be the first stitch on the right of the chart) and stitches in wrong side row from left to right (that is, your first stitch in wrong side row will be the first stitch on the left of the chart). To make this concept easier the number of each row is shown at the beginning of row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side). Ignore this note if you knit in the round and start all your rows from the right of the chart.
