Linen stitch is really fun to work with as the pattern changes depending on how you stripe the yarn. Once you have set up the first couple of rows it is serious TV crochet. I have used a mixture of Plump DK and Pudding, this was on a bit a whim, but I think it works well. I would definitely weave in the ends as you go, you can also crochet them in as you are working.
