Yarn: Rowanspun 4-ply, 100% 4-ply Wool

Needles: 3.5 mm / US 5

Gauge: 5.5 stitches x 12 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: 'Swirls and Square' Patterned Square

Source: Knitting Counterpanes: Traditional Coverlet Patterns for Contemporary Knitters by Mary Walker Phillips, p. 40.

Comments: Another deliberately small pattern - this one is meant to be a joining piece for a counterpane made up of octagonal medallions.  Ms. Phillips calls it "moderatelydifficult" - I think that's because of the fiddly-ness of having to start this with 8 stitches on 4 needles! :)
