The Piggyback stitch makes a very nice texture. With this square having little holes it makes for a very warm blanket and also great for donations either in block form or combined with many more blocks for a full blanket. There are many charities that take block donations and this is a great block to provide them.
The stitch is nice to work and a nice pattern to memorize and make while watching tv.
Personally, I can see this as a nice cooler weather bag that would be great for fall festivals!
