Square in a Square Checkerboard Knitting Stitch by Knitting Bee http://www.knitting-bee.com/
A very easy yet effective box inside a box checkerboard stitch knitting pattern! This is a great stitch pattern for scarves as it is completely reversible and doesn’t really require blocking, it just sits nicely.
Checkerboard knitting stitches come in various incarnations and variations, I really like this one because it takes the checkerboard stitch up a notch.
A very simple and quick knitting stitch to make that has a fabulous texture!
