Square 22, called Diagonal Weave, is a simple and rather quick knit. There are seven and a half pattern repeats. It is possible to have memorized the pattern by the end of the second repeat making the knitting to take on very speedy progress.
Cast on 47 stitches.
There are 59 rows before binding off in purl.

This is a block that I do not particularly like and do not expect I will ever use it beyond this project, but it is rather striking.
