A sensational job on a pattern I believe to be one of the toughest to get right.  Ranks among the best Rangers I've seen.  Bravo !!

Now take a thumbnail and give that second rib a little nudge :)

Thanks guys

One year off means I have to learn a few things again...the rib for instance… I put the lace on first (%#!,) I should’ve put the flat on first, and then let the lace slide off it, to avoid the gaps. Oh well!

Thank you Bent.

You’ve been among the contributors to give inspiration for tying again.

One of the nicest DH I’ve seen. Shape is exactly what I think the DH should have (personal preference). Happy to see you back at the classics! Luc

Takk skal du ha Kjell-Ove!

Thanks Luc! Yes...the shape I was looking...I'll try a smaller one - probably harder to achieve the proportions.

Thanks Chris.

Nope...I think it looks blued because of the dark red background.
