    I don’t really agree with Walker about the back of this pattern–it’s not ugly, but it’s not “very attractive,” either. I wonder why it is that in general I like knit-based patterns more, is it just early indoctrination that the knit side is the “right” side? Of is it the smoothness of knit vs the ‘bumpier’ aspect of purl?

    This is a lovely pattern. Seeing it knit up here reminds me that I need to figure out an occasion to use it.

    Sappho, I don’t think it’s an overwhelmingly attractive reverse side either. I did have a kind of “wow” moment when I looked at the reverse and realized that it looked like a faint shadow of the front-side pattern, but I wouldn’t deliberately use it on the outside of a project.
