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

Needles: 8 mm / 11 US

Gauge: 4 stitches and 7 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Fabric Stitch

Source: BW1, p. 99-100.

Comments: For this pattern, you're supposed to use "large needles".  I think 8mms might have been too large for this worsted weight yarn.  But still, you get the effect.  In a couple of places you can see where I purled the stitches instead of just slipping them.  I think I'd have to pay a lot more attention if I were using this in a real project.  (are you noticing a lack-of-attention theme here?).
