Yarn: King Cole Merino Blend DK - 100% Superwash Wool, in Wine and Slate Blue

Needles: 4 mm / 6 US

Gauge: 4.5 stitches and 5.5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Leaning Stripe Pattern

Source: BW2, p. 90.

Comments: This one is made with a mix of twisted and slipped stitches - by twisting right next to a slipped stitch, it pulls the fabric in and gives it this slant.  Compare it to the vertical stripes from a few months back and you'll see the difference it makes.  Of course those were wider stripes too, but I think you get the point.
