Swatching Sunday: In 3D

This week I'm trying another stitch from The New Knitting Stitch Library.

This is stitch number 50. It may be hard to tell from this picture, but it looks like 3D blocks.

I really like this stitch. It's reversible, and doesn't seem to curl. I think this may the stitch for my precious Silk Cotton. I'll have to see how it looks in a nicer yarn with more drape. I also think I'd slip the first stitch of every row to straighten up the edges.

I used US size 5 aluminum needles from my Boye Needlemaster and cheap acrylic from my stash. This swatch is unwashed and unblocked.
