I wish I could take better photos of the dark colored squares! If you "click" on the photos, the photo will be enlarged and you can see the detail a bit better. This is the first repeat (it's a 24 row repeat). This block is not difficult... you just have to be really focused to ensure you use the correct cable stitch. There are eight different cable stitches in this pattern. The colored markers and all the post it notes are keeping me on track! I think I need to work on something less complicated at knitting group today or else I'll just make a bunch of mistakes!
