Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers 100% worsted weight wool, in Pumpkin Spice and Yakima Heather

Needles: 4.5mm / US 7

Gauge: 4.5 stitches x 10 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Two-Colour Fabric Stitch 

Source: BW3, p. 228.

Comments:  This fabric is super dense and - due to all the slipped stitches - very smooth.  The back looks a little like and over-stretched moss stitch done in 2-row stripes.  I think this would make a really interesting fabric for a waistcoat, especially when done in two very similar tones like these.
