Wrapped in the colours of the earth, Earth Maiden walks the woods.

Her wrap is a long, rectangular stole, laced along one side. Knit from the long edge, the pattern grows organically, highlighting the random coloration of the handpainted yarn.

Earth Maiden can wear her creation in a myriad of ways: as a shawl, as a poncho or as a wrap, with or without an I-cord closure at the front, at the back, or to the side.

The pattern contains two versions of this wrap: a full-length version (as pictured) and a shorter version.

Sizing Information:
One size fits most. Its generous dimensions are particularly flattering for those with earthy, voluptuous proportions.

Full-length wrap: 208 cm/82 in long and 39 cm/15.5 in wide

Shorter version of the wrap: 155 cm/61 in long and 39 cm/15.5 in wide


  • Suggested Yarn: 920 m/1006 yds (800 m/812 yds. for the shorter version) of double knitting or light worsted weight yarn
  • Needles: 4.5 mm (US 7) circular needle (80 cm/32 in recommended)

Charted and Handwritten.
