Combine your favorite colors to create a very special piece that will keep you warm in winter as well as in summer nights. It’s a rectangular scarf or wrap with a bold graphic pattern of short rows and intarsia. Since it’s knitted all in garter stitch it’s snug and comfy.
The PDF includes a written version and a shorthand version of the pattern. It also contains a chart to show how the short rows stack up to form the wedges.
Besides being able to knit plain garter stitch you need the following knitting skills to complete this wrap:
- Short rows with wrap and turn
Helpful skills (but not absolutely necessary):
- Weaving in ends while knitting
- Carrying yarn upwards
For the wrap in the photos I used Rico Essentials Merino DK, but other yarns will do as well), namely:
about 250 grams of DK weight yarn in your main color
about 100 grams of DK weight yarn in contrast color 1
about 100 grams of DK weight yarn in contrast color 2
about 100 grams of DK weight yarn in contrast color 3
