Yarn: Tivoli Celtic Aran 100% Superwash Wool in Blue

Needles: 4.5 mm / US 7

Gauge: 3.5 sts and 5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Little Herringbone

Source: BW1, p. 98

Comments: This little two-row pattern makes quite a dense fabric, which pulls wider than it does tall.  Kind of fun, but I think it would be challenging to work it into a garment.... it takes ages to knit, and the right side of the piece is a little wonky, even after blocking.  I suppose it might correct if you picked up a button band on that side, but you'd have to be careful with the stitch you chose - I'm not sure if ribbing would look good next to this pattern.
