The quilted lattice stitch is one of those jaw-droppingly beautiful patterns that is great for all the right reasons. First, it's not too difficult to execute. Second, it is a diverse stitch that can be used with contrasting colors to make an even more stunning impression. And third, even when you're knitting it in only one color, it serves as a great exercise in tension.
