Yarn: Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino (KPPPM) in colour P334 (they don't have names, sorry).

Needles: 3.25mm / US 3

Gauge: 6.5 sts and 9 rows measured in garter stitch

Stitch Pattern: Quilted Lattice

Source: BW1, p. 182.

Comments: I saw a version of this stitch used with very bright variegated yarn, and loved the way the lifted bars really made the colours pop.  I found this bit of leftover Koigu in the stash, and thought I'd try it out.  I like it, but I think you'd have to cut down on the number of lifted bars to put this into a garment, otherwise it would be much too busy.
