Comments: The swatch was 6 repeats wide and high. Blocked, it measured 4in wide by 3.2in high. Unblocked it was 2.6in wide by 2.75in high. It’s less stretchy than honeycomb lace over the same number of stitches/rows and may benefit from less ‘severe’ blocking than that in the picture. The unblocked version appears below for comparison.

    Nice comparison on how blocking can make such a difference! I really liked this, but when I saw the honeycomb lace below, I think I prefer that as the hourglass shape around the eyelets are more defined. Very nice.
