Arcade Pattern

Contributed try Bemice Haedike, Oak Park. Illinois

This can be worked in a single panel of 15 stitches, in which case it looks more like a type of double cable with bobbles than an "arcade" of pillars and arches. It is unusual and pretty, and makes a fascinating allover design rich with texture interest.
