My second cable swatch! This is fun.
I haven't cast off, and will keep going for a while. We can't have everything the same shape and size, now, can we?
The background is garter stitch, as you can see, and I purl all across the wrong-side rows, and purl the garter stitch bits on the front. I can see a whole garment in this, or one or two of these panels in a more elaborate design.
It's from the VK 2010 calendar, April 21, and called Tower of Song, for some reason!
