Yarn: White 4-ply yarn, in some kind of wool/acrylic mix.

Needles: 3.5mm / 4 US (plus a 4.5mm needle for casting off)

Gauge: 5 sts and 6 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Wineglass Lace

Source: BW2, p. 313.

Comments:  This lacy little pattern practically doubles in width after blocking - as you can see, my cast-off on a 4.5mm needle was not loose enough to allow for proper stretching of the fabric.  In the BW book, single repeats of this are used as an edge for a different lace panel I think it may actually look better that way.  You'd just have to be really careful about measuring gauge on this when you went to work it into a project.
