The original pattern called for the knit stitches to be twisted, but I think it looks fine even without that.

I'm not going to lie. This is pretty much my favorite pattern in the entire afghan. Easy to work. Symmetrical and easy to learn. Pretty without being fussy. Perfect. The chart will be available on 12/5/10, along with a podcast within which I yammer about dye lots and untangling yarn.
