The Weekly Swatch, Part 2 - Butterfly Wing Stitch

I am swatching rather a lot at the moment, as I am in search of new stitch combinations and swatching tends to get the imagination going.

This week, once again in Knitglobal 4 ply sock yarn, I have prepared a little sample of the Butterfly Wing Stitch.
