Difficult Techniques, if any: this pattern has travelling stitches on both odd and even rows, and as such, is easier to work in the round than flat, so that the right side is always facing the knitter.

Comments: Barbara Walker distinguishes between two different types (each) of right and left twist. Check the chart and compare with the instructions given on page xxii of the ‘complete list of symbols’ at the start of the 3rd treasury. The type of right and left twist she uses in the ‘Ear of Corn’ chart gives a slightly ‘puffier’ end result.

Comments: The swatch was 3 repeats wide by 3.5 high. Blocked, it measured 6.25in wide by 5.8in high. Unblocked it was 4.5in wide by 4in high. It’s a fairly stretchy pattern in both directions, slightly more so vertically. While blocking enhanced the pattern, I quite like the unblocked version too (see below).
