This is the Seafoam Pattern. It you are not fond of lacey/holey blocks you might want to find a substitute block. As you can see from the picture on the left, knitting the required number of repeats does not give you an 8 inch square. The picture on the right shows what the pattern looks like blocked. (sort of) It actually looks nicer in the finished afghan than just pinned to the carpet. I've seen some beautiful scarves made in this stitch, but I will just admire them for the beauties they are. I can't say that I was particularly fond of knitting this one, but I am keeping it in my blanket.
