Yarn: Regia Sock Yarn in Brown, and James C. Brett Pure Merino - 100% Merino DK Wool, in Lilac
Needles: 4 mm / US 6

Gauge: 5.5 stitches x 8 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Russian Stitch 

Source: BW2, p. 61-62.

Comments:  This is a mosaic stitch, so you work one colour at a time and slip all the stitches that need to stay in the opposite color.  I think this would have been better if I had used two yarns of the same weight - this DK is a bit on the thick side, and of course the sock yarn is a 4-ply so the contrast here is quite obvious - the brown ends up getting a little lost , I think.
