Comments: Its hard to measure row gauge on this one, because the slipped-stitch horizontal bars technically count as rows. I think this one could be dangerous in an overall pattern - in the top left corner, you can see the results of this swatch's run-in with an errant pin. I can see how this could easily snag on other things as well. I wonder how it would look felted? That would remove the problem of snagging, while maintaining that horizontal bar. Hmm... I need more time, and more feltable yarns! :)
