Wrap uses 3 skeins each of colors Deep Pacific and Reef Grey.

Created as the nights grow longer, with my fingers in the wool, my thoughts turned toward the Solstice, and the balance of light and dark. Living where I do, it is natural to long for brighter days but this wrap is about embracing the coziness of a longer night, of wrapping up in the most grounding and comforting fabric.

The texture of this wrap is a delight to knit and a pleasure for the hands and eyes. The slipped stitch pattern is easy to work, and made on large needles it’s a very quick wrap to knit.

I used every bit of my 6 skeins, for a longer and more dramatic wrap, order 8.
