I also like to play with pattern stitches. This is a keep-it-simple arrangement of knits and purls that forms a spongy ribbed fabric. It's a different take on the seed stitch with two stitches instead of one stitch worked over each other on each row. This is one of those stitches you can do while watching TV - very little thought involved for a very pretty result.
The pattern is below if you would like to use it.

Cut yarn 18" from work. Using yarn needle thread end through remaining stitches, pull tight and make a few stitches to secure. Weave in ends. Attach a pompom if desired.
