      The swatch looks lovely! The little round non-cabled rev st st part is begging for an embroidered medallion of some kind, too. :)

      3mm needles are US 2/3 because US 2 is 2.75 mm and US 3 is 3.25 :P

      how would this look if there was more than one repeat?

      As quoted from my comment on the Barred and Braided Cable post since there are a few posts with a comment taking issue with repeats:

      “Panel patterns don’t need to be repeated horizontally across the swatch as it dilutes focus from the pattern. More than one repeat vertically is always nice, but on a really huge panel it can be difficult to fit all those repeats in and still be close enough to show the pattern. :) ”
