The perfect pattern

Just a quickie post about my current blanket-block because I am completely besotted with this pattern. The cables provide complexity and ‘crunch’ and the lace sections give the cables enough room to breathe. The cables stretch out the lace so you can see it properly and the lace gives the cables enough room to pull inwards as much as they like. Added to that it’s a snap to learn (no repeating the pattern three times before you learn it) because there are only three different pattern rows (pattern row 1, purl, pattern row 2, purl, pattern row 1, purl, pattern row 3, purl). I’m in love, I could knit this all day.
