Comments: Swatch is 2 repeats + 9 st (28cm) wide and 2 repeats (24cm) high. Requires a lot of blocking to enhance the eyelets in the pattern. The reverse has a lot of structural interest, see below. If the piece is left unblocked, the cables are more pronounced.

    thanks very much for the back view and for the unbloked version–I think blocking skills are a real mark of knitting dedication.
