Comments: The swatch was 5 repeats wide and 3 high. Lightly blocked, it measured 6.5in wide by 4.25in high.
It benefitted from moderate horizontal blocking, which rounded the ‘cables’ nicely. The swatch above emulates the photo in the book. From  left to right: cables 1, 3 and 5 start on row 1 of the chart; cables 2 and 4 start on row 6 of the chart.

See below for an attempt at turning  the cable round an acute corner.
