Yarn: Rowan Yorkshire Tweed 4-Ply, 100% wool, in Green

Needles: 3.5 mm / 4 US

Gauge: 6.5 stitches and 9 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Diagonal Weave

Source: BW1, p. 99

Comments: I like the pattern of the slipped stitches in this pattern.  The instructions say it makes a dense fabric, but I didn't really find that - maybe it has to do with the thickness of the yarn that one uses.  I could see this as a pillow, or maybe a sweater - cream colour, crew neck, 1x1 ribbing at the cuffs, waist and collar.  Hmmm... I wonder if I have enough of a suitable yarn in my stash.
