    Well, this is interesting; I do find the back of this as attractive (maybe even more so) than the front. Perhaps because of all the knit areas? But, I wonder if in general, I’ve been confusing “patterns with an attractive back side” with “reversible.” “Attractive back” patterns probably aren’t supposed to be “You can use this pattern with either side out,” but “this will look nice if the back becomes visible for any reason.”

    Yes, it looks like you could use it for a scarf and it wouldn’t look bad if the other side showed. Does it curl, or lay pretty flat?

    It does curl a little, but nowhere near as pronounced as basic stockinette. I think it would be fine in a scarf.

    Wow–this is a prime example of the map ain’t the territory. This looks way more architectural and interesting than the swatch in the book.

    Thanks for showing the back. I’ve been cruising through my treasuries for baby blanket blocks, and it’s very helpful to know what the back will look like!
