A celebration of some of Portland’s waterways, the Three Rivers wrap flows easily across your needles. Tonal colors mix and mingle like the waters of the Willamette and Sandy rivers where they meet the Columbia, while the rich texture of a broken garter stitch pattern echoes the ripples on the water’s surface. Intuitive to knit, with an elegant bias drape, this asymmetric wrap conveys some of the subtle beauties of the city of rivers.
