Ignored this pattern from my stash for a long time — because it was 300 rounds — written out in Dutch! However, since working with Franciska Ruessink, I decided to take the opportunity to retrieve this one headed for the "dust bin of history". No pattern name was given, so "Romantic" was derived from the caption of the original photo; and, as before, Franciska’s done a wonderful job of knitting it.

To get an even better idea of how spectacular this pattern is, am including "close-ups" below. Also, when I started recharting it, I realized that it is very unlikely that it is a Niebling because of the unusual twist stitches employed, as can be seen in the Key To Symbols, a screenshot of which follows.
