Yarn: White 4-ply yarn, in some kind of wool/acrylic mix.

Needles: 3.5 mm / 5 US

Gauge: 5 stitches and 7 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Frost Flowers

Source: BW1, p. 204.

Comments: I think I should have made this swatch bigger, to encompass more repeats of the pattern - I resisted because its a 32 stitch repeat, and I didn't want to make a ginormous swatch.  I just think that the 'flower' aspect of the swatch might be more clear with extra repeats, both vertically, and horizontally.   Maybe I'll use this in a lacy blanket someday, and then the pattern will be more obvious.
