Cate’s Wrap is a tribute to the beautiful, knitted design, Nymphalidea, by Melinda VerMeer. It is worked in two lace weight yarns--one with gradual color changes, and the other in a sharply contrasting color. The yarns are not cut but are carried up the side. Cate’s Wrap is worked like a triangle with short rows along one side. The short rows curve the wrap and gradually form it into a crescent shape.
Cate’s Wrap is named for my friend, Cate, a very talented knitter and crafter.
Dimensions: (pre-blocking) 67 in. (170 cm) from tip to tip and 16 in. (40.6 cm) at widest point;
(post-blocking) 75 in. (190.5 cm) from tip to tip and 16 in. (40.6 cm) at widest point
Stitches used: chain, foundation single crochet, single crochet
The 8-page pattern pdf includes 11 photos. Most are progress photos and blocking photos.
When I finished crocheting, I had 25 g (38%) of my contrasting color remaining and 19 g (19%) of my main color remaining.
Cate’s Wrap can be made shorter or longer. Simply reduce the number of repeats to shorten the wrap, or increase the number of repeats to lengthen it.
