The counterchange pattern that you can download here is similar to a chessboard. It's a geometric repeating pattern and we found it in an old book.

Like all 2D patterns on our website, this tessellation pattern can be downloaded in the 2D CAD (.dwg) and vector (.eps and .svg) file formats.


It consists of two sets of parallel lines intersecting at a right angle. Each line at stated intervals are twisted into S-shaped double curves. In this way fields are established and painted like a chessboard to form the counterchange pattern.
