This is the chart I used for the sweater at the Ravelry link below. It's a 24 stitch x 20 row repeat, and is Stitch World #426. It's also included in at least one of the supplementary card packs from Silver Reed (aka Studio, Singer, Knitmaster) and in their Stitch Library books also.
The chart is also suitable for slip stitch and fair isle and knitweave techniques (by machine or by hand).
NB: every row worked is shown on this chart, but one could double it either in length, width, or both for different effects. IMO it will be 'blocky' looking if both length and width are doubled at once.
It kind of looks like interlaced tripods to me; in fairisle it can be somewhat arabesque, or have a sci-fi look, depending on the colors used. ;) Solid with a multicolor contrast is interesting in fair isle; I made a sample for Rainbow Mills' Crayons yarn (micro weight) some years ago.
