Yarn: Patons Classic Wool Merino, 100% Worsted Weight Merino Wool, in Plum Heather, and Tivoli Celtic Aran, 100% Superwash Aran Wool, in Taupe

Needle: 4.5 mm / US 7

stitches and 6-ish rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Barred Stripes

Source: BW2, p. 52.

Comments: Its hard to measure row gauge on this one, because the slipped-stitch horizontal bars technically count as rows.  I think this one could be dangerous in an overall pattern - in the top left corner, you can see the results of this swatch's run-in with an errant pin.  I can see how this could easily snag on other things as well.  I wonder how it would look felted? That would remove the problem of snagging, while maintaining that horizontal bar.  Hmm... I need more time, and more feltable yarns! :)
