When The Plucky Knitter delighted the knitting community with their Quintessential Plucky Palette (a nine color yarn kit) this summer, I was inspired to create a simple wrap using all the colors of the palette. The wrap uses the stripes of bright summer beach towels and small strips of easy-to-memorize lace with hidden starfish for interest. While the summer kit is no longer available, this design will easily adapt to your favorite collection of colors. I hope this wrap delights and warms you as the summer evenings turn chilly, whether it be sitting on the dock, by the cottage, or out on the boat watching the moonlight on the water.

The Plucky Knitter will be offering up a Fall Quintessential Palette on September 9th and 11th at the PluckyKnitter Blog
