Yarn:  Gedifra Fashion Trend Stripe, 51% Wool/46% Acrylic worsted weight yarn in a Red, Navy, and Grey Blend.

Needle: 4 mm / US 6

Gauge: 4.5 
stitches and 4.5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Double Knit Fabric

Source: BW2, p. 24.

Comments: This pattern looks like a 1x1 rib, but is actually knit by slipping every other stitch with the yarn in back. This makes a really squooshy fabric - especially in a loosely spun yarn like this one.  The swatch is teeny because this was the very last 3 grams of the yarn that I had, and I didn't want to waste it.  :)
