Again, this was knit on time, just delayed in the posting.  That's what happens when friends come to visit from New York! ;)

Yarn: Berocco Ultra Alpaca Worsted, 50% Alpaca/50% Wool in Lobster Boysenberry Mix

Needles: 4.5 mm / 7 US

Gauge: 4.5 sts and 5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Vandyke Swag Stitch

Source: BW2, p. 25

Comments:  Barbara Walker suggests that this pattern makes "a beautifully 'tailored' fabric for suits, jackets, and coats."  Not sure I agree with that, at least in this yarn/needle combination.  Maybe in a smoother yarn with a smaller needle?
