Yarn: Elann Peruvian Baby Silk - 80% Alpaca/20% Silk, in Parchment

Needles: 3.5mm / 4 US

Gauge: roughly 5 stitches and 5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Star Rib Mesh

Source: BW1, p. 196.

Comments: I don't think I've done enough open-work swatches, so I decided to try this one.  The decreases are made using the slip 2, k1, p2sso, method which apparently keeps the ribs very vertical - Ms. Walker says that if you slip 1, k2tog, psso, you'll end up with a crooked vertical line.
