This is one of the few patterns which are on a slanted grid rather than a horizontal and vertical one. The first picture shows the basic unit (large format). The second picture shows how you can repeat the pattern; this can obviously be extended as far as you wish.

The original patterns were in black and white, so I have chosen the colours. You can vary them if you want. The yellow squares may be a different type of stitch, as the 4 stitches are drawn as a diagonal cross. It seemed easier to make these a different colour instead. Feel free to chose colours you want or colour it a different way.
