Three Reversible Texture Mosaics Little Castle Sliding Block Pattern and Cage Pattern

All three of these patterns combine knit and purl stitches on the wrong-side rows to make varying texture effects. These effects can be reversed, by reading "knit" for "purl" and vice versa on the wrong-side rows only. Or, a straight stockinette or garter-stitch type of fabric can be achieved by purling all the wrong-side stitches, in the first case, or knitting them, in the second.
