Leaping Stripes

I happened on this very easy and interesting crochet pattern by Moogly awhile back. I filed the pattern away and revisited it the other day when I was looking for a two-color potholder pattern. This pattern stitch is called "Leaping Stripes." It has an unusual construction, rather like a filet stitch, but different.

Here are the instructions for this stitch. There are detailed photos and a tutorial. I tried it and I like it VERY much. This stitch produces a sturdy cloth.

This almost looks like a houndstooth pattern!

This is a softer cotton, variegated.  I like how the variegation is broken up by the stitches in the previous row.

Yup. This stitch is a winner.  I can even see myself making an afghan with it. Here are some online examples of this stitch by other crocheters.
