Yarn: Tivoli Celtic Aran, 100% Superwash Aran Wool, in Taupe, and KnitPicks Wool of the Andes, 100% worsted weight wool in Chocolate

Needle: 4.5 mm / US 7

Gauge: approximately 6 
stitches and 7 rows per inch - this one is hard to measure!

Stitch Pattern: Chain of Triangles

Source: BW2, p. 100.

Comments: I had intended to knit this one with a dark background and light triangles, but the pattern didn't specify which of yarns A and B in the pattern corresponded to the dark and light colours in the photo (That's a complaint I have about many stitch dictionaries. This is useful information to have when deciding how to knit a particular stitch pattern!).  This pattern is a little hard on the eyes.  When you see the swatch up-close, its easy to focus on the light colour and blur out the rest - you have to step back a little to see the stacked triangles that give the pattern its name.
