Comments, if any: This is 1.5 vertical repeats. The fabric definitely does not want to lay flat, even with a crocheted border it still pushes out.

Odin’s Eagles

Odin's Eagles

Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Catania
Wraps Per Inch: 18
Needles: 3.25 mm
Gauge: 7 spi
Pattern: Odin’s Eagles
Stitch Count Repeat: multiple of 32 stitches

Page: 86-87

Comments: Did two full repeats of pattern across, and worked rows 1-44 twice.  The photo in the book depicts more than two repeats lengthwise.  If I were using this as a border pattern of only one repeat lengthwise, I would perhaps start with row 37-44, work through the pattern to row 43 in order to frame the “eagles” within the “zigzag.”  That’s a matter of choice, of course.

The fabric is very dense, and needs good blocking to see the pattern. Also, higher contrast colors may be a better choice.
