Comments:  Last of the cheater swatches, which is probably why its so teeny!  :)  When I started working on this one, I was convinced I had knit the pattern already - it reminded me so much of the Daisy Stitch.  But the way it is worked is quite different, and when you compare them they actually look quite different too.  Personally, I think I also prefer the daisy stitch, but that may have something to do with the colours I chose to use.  :)

  1. I have a tiny little donation to your swatch blanket... I thought it would help fill in the gaps maybe... plus it's cute...
