Yarn: Elann Peruvian Baby Silk - 80% Alpaca/20% Silk, in Parchment, and  Elann Peruvian Baby Cashmere, 60% Alpaca/30% Merino/10% Cashmere 4-ply, in Peacock 

Needles: 3.75mm / US 5

Gauge: 5.75 stitches and 5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Stripe and Rib Pattern

Source: BW2, p. 44-45.

Comments: This is a fun stripe pattern that requires you to knit one row in one colour, slide the piece back to the other end of the needle, and then knit the next row with the other colour.  Kind of a fun way of knitting, although I think it might be a bit tough to do this on a large piece.  This yarn would have been better knit on a smaller needle - its 4-ply yarn, and would be better suited to a 3.25mm.
