Difficult techniques: ‘starting’ the closed cable is tricky to get even. I used the second of the two options given for the central double increase in the key at the start of the book.
Comments: The swatch was 1 repeat wide and 4 and a bit high. It didn’t require blocking per se, was just pinned flat.
