Yarn: Debbie Bliss Stella - 60% Silk/20% Cotton/20% Rayon, in Teal

Needles: 5mm / US 8

Gauge: 4.25 stitches x 6 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Hanging Vines

Source: St5, page 68.

Comments:  I think this pattern might be more effective in a thinner, less textured yarn.  The silk in this yarn gives it a heavier feel, so the plain bits detract from the eyelets.  But then maybe that's the point?  I think there are other eyelet options that I'd choose over this one, if I were looking for something to lighten up an otherwise plain piece.
