Comments:  The pattern  was a pleasant surprise,  subtler texture than an all-over bobble stitch.  I can see this on the leg of a sock or on a baby jacket/hat.
I followed the instructions exactly, but this picture looks quite different to the one in the book – difference in lighting angles perhaps or how severely it was blocked in comparison to the book sample .
