Yarn: King Cole Merino Blend DK, 100% Superwash Wool, in Slate Blue, and Elann Peruvian Highland Sport, 100% Wool in Oxford Grey Heather

Needles: 4 mm / 6 US

Gauge: 4.25 stitches and 7 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Beaded Stripe Pattern

Source: BW1, p. 71.

Comments: I think this pattern is more often knit using one pale colour and one darker one, but I decided to use two darker colours, just to see the effect.  Technically the grey yarn is a bit thinner than the blue, which makes those sections a little more see-through, but I think it works out pretty well anyway.
