Needles: 4.5
 mm / US 6

Gauge: 5 sts and 6 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Twisted Diagonal Stripe

Source: BW2, p. 147.

Comments: I need to do this again in a lighter colour because you can barely see the twisted stitches in this swatch.  That said, it definitely helped when I switched to Barbara Walker's "better" method  of working twisted (outlined in the intro to the chapter on Twisted Stitches).  can you see where I switched methods?  Its about halfway up the swatch - look closely and you can see how the stitches make a neater line, with more define gaps between the stitches.
