Yarn: Berroco Lustra, 50% Wool/50% Tencel aran weight yarn in Aubergine  

Needles: 4.5 mm / US 7

Gauge: 5 sts and 7 rows per inch (I think - its really hard to count these stitches!)

Stitch Pattern: Portcullis Stitch

Source: BW2, p. 224.

Comments:  Not sure what to say about this one.  Its worked with a combination of yarn overs and decreases, and creates a flat fabric that lies pretty flat.  Add to it this very easily killed yarn, and you have an item that will never need to be blocked.  :)
