Color work? This pattern I'm using involves knits and slip stitches, that's it. http://www.knittingpatternsgalore.co...loth-2565.html
I keep messing up the row repeats but for someone more focused I think it would be really easy. I'm using acrylic yarn, if I like what it when I'm done I'll do another piece and make a bag, maybe. It would make a nice rug too. There are other slip stitch patterns on that site and I'm sure there are loads of them on Ravelry.
