The Tilt Shift Wrap features a woven cable that is knit through itself, rather than simply crossed front to back. It is knit flat in once piece in DK weight yarn, then folded and seamed. An edge cable mimics the undulations of the tilting stitches. Complicated? 80% of the rows are just soothing stockinette stitch! There is a link to a video tutorial for the woven cable.

Semisolid tonals will shine in this design.

Gauge will depend on your yarn, and size will depend on gauge. You want a fabric that is slightly looser than sweater gauge, but not floppy. I knit the Rastita version on US 8; test knitter knit the Sublime version on US 7.

3 100g skeins of DK weight yarn will yield a nicely sized wrap. You can knit it to the length you like. The Rastita (blue/green) version is a bit long on me, but I didn’t want to stop knitting this yarn and stitch combination!

Is it a wrap? Is it a poncho? I have flashbacks to the 1970’s when I say poncho, so to me it’s a wrap!

This was the April 2015 KAL in the PDXKnitterati Ravelry group!
