One thing that looks really cool is stripes within stripes. You'd knit 4 rows of Color A, two rows of Color B, 2 rows of Color A, 2 rows of Color B, and 4 rows of Color A for instance. It's smaller stripes inside a larger one. You could make the smaller stripes one row if you wish. I'll also use a fair isle technique where I alternate two colors with a white yarn. It's hard to describe, but I would chart it like this:

AAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAA
AWAWAWA
WAWAWAW
AWAWAWA
WAWAWAW
AAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAA
(Here you can switch to color B or put a dividing line of two rows of black before beginning B).
