It’s a really nice, delicate pattern, and is very easy to work. This is three and a half repeats of the pattern.

    Ah! I actually like it better with the edges included. Pretty colors … although I see bunny ears rather than bean sprouts. :-)

    I can see bunny ears, too! I think the bean sprouts would be more apparent if it was spring green on brown. :)
