I followed a simple sequence for my first attempt at a slightly more intricate swatch, was quite pleased with what I achieved although am very confused as to how I ended up with a diagonal edge. I feel it may have been down to my lack of concentration as I kept forgetting which stitch I was doing, it has helped in my learning process to get things wrong although I’m getting rather irritated with almost finishing a swatch and getting it wrong towards the end.
