Finished! Mostly

It looks like it will block to around 72" wide. Because I used really fine yarn and small needles, it is not as big as you would expect given the number of repeats I did, but it is big enough for my purposes. I think. I wish it were larger but I don't wish that hard enough to go back and add more repeats. No way.
