Grandiose was designed in collaboration with Miss Babs Hand-Dyed Yarn for their Fall 2019 Collection; print patterns in their house format will be available at the Miss Babs booth at the many yarn shows they attend; stop by if you can, and see the samples in person! Digital pdfs are available here from my Ravelry store, and are formatted with my usual layout style and photography.

Whether glamping around a forest retreat, exploring on a quaint weekend away, or unplugging for your stay-cation, the Grandiose Wrap provides big snuggly comfort. A triangle shawl beginning grows on each unique bias side to make an enfolding rectangular wrap, highlighting a main color paired with a mini-skein set in a mix of stripe and eyelet-based stitch patterns.

Techniques & Skills Used: garter tab CO, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, easy lace. Instructions for this pattern are fully written, with charts also provided for the eyelet-based lace.

Size: 104”/264 cm length at top, 80”/203cm length at bottom, and 18”/46cm depth.

Yarn: Miss Babs Yowza (100% superwash merino wool; 560 yards/ 512m/225g); 1 skein, shown in Fleur de Sel (A), and Miss Babs Yowza Mini (100% superwash merino wool; 200 yards/182m/80g); 3 skeins, shown in Stowaway (B), Tiger Eye (C), and Zinfandel (D), respectively. The sample used almost all of the yarn.

Other Materials: US 7 (4.5mm) 32” circular needle, or size to match gauge; Markers (4); Yarn needle.

Gauge: 18 st and 34 rows/4” in garter stitch after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.
