50 Shades of Teal
This pattern was developed especially for the 2 Knit Lit Chicks KAL. Join this group to get support during the KAL.
Now available in 2 sizes.*
This cozy wearable wrap is in the shape of a V with the point cut off. It’s better than a rectangular stole for wrapping around your shoulders, yet easier than crescents or half circle shapes.
It starts with a lace edging, then decreases are used to create the angles that make the shape. There are lacy bands of different textures that will show off the gradient yarn, since different lace textures will also be different colors.
There are lace designs such as the fir tree lace, rows of eyelets, and a tulip motif (see swatch) There are stockinette stitch and garter stitch bands too, for some restful knitting.
Optional beads are included in the design.
There are both written and charted instructions.
Solid, semi-solid or gradient yarn
Wool or wool-silk blend
About 390 (425) yds/375 (415) m are required.
Note: several knitters report that they used only 275 yards or so, not the full skein. Your mileage may vary!
If using 2 colors (as shown), MC uses about 300 (345) yds, CC uses 110 (120) yds.
Latest instructions now include a larger size, at no extra charge of course. Now you can use up a larger skein of yarn, and have more lacy goodness to wrap around your shoulders. The pink version at left is the larger version.
Note: Exact size will depend on your tension and how the piece is blocked.
