Sampler Afghan Square #06 - WIP

Its been a while since I have worked on any squares!! LoL This pattern is from the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns. The stitch pattern is called Gentle Curves and it is on page 248.

With a simple 14 + 1 stitch repeat, I have cast on 49 stitches. This includes a 3 stitch border on each side.

The photo doesn't really show the detail, but blocking should help that!
