Needles: 4.5 mm / US 7

Stitch Pattern: Hexagon Pattern

Source: BW1, p. 67.

Comments: I'm using this beige yarn in a sweater at the moment, and since I know I'll have lots of leftovers of it, I decided to feature it in a swatch.  The hexagon shape in this pattern is made by the upward pull of the slipped stitches that divide each block.  Takes a little blocking to make the top and bottom straight, but maybe it would balance out better if you used in in a full garment...
