I 'resurrected' this pattern a few years ago when DH and I were having a driving holiday in the north island of New Zealand. I wanted something simple to work on in the evenings while DH watched the sports' channels.
On that holiday I started a throw rug using a purple mohair blend and a very 'fluffy' yarn that I bought on sale from Spotlight...10 balls for $5. This is what the rug looked like...

Now this photo below is of a swatch that I started knitting just recently, using this pattern. It looks completely different to the 'fluffy' yarn rug as the fluff hides the other vertical line of stitches.
The pattern is very simple...I still had this scrap of paper with the rows scribbled on it that I took to NZ instead of lugging along the larger knitting book.
And this is the printed pattern.
PS I'm all signed up for FNSI for this Friday...how about you???
