Comments: Betcha thought I'd forgotten to keep swatching, eh?  I've been doing the knitting, its just the blocking and posting that takes me ages!  This one is an interesting mix of vertical faggoting stitch ladders (that name seems so non-PC!) and what is apparently a German Beehive stitch.  I suppose you could do a whole sweater or wrap in this, but it would take you ages... plus its really hard to remember which row you're on as you go along (the rows go A,B,C,B, and I kept forgetting if I were on the first or the second B row!).
