Designed to release for Zombie Knitpocalypse 2020, in collaboration with Queen City Yarn. Pick up a kit of your favorite color combo from Queen City Yarn HERE and knit yourself an Air Hugs Wrap!

This reversible wrap design comes from my desire to maximize the possibilities of yardage in single skeins. I designed this project with Queen City Yarn to showcase their yarn dyeing technique with the versatility of my designs. This piece was originally designed for the Zombie Knitpocalypse 2020 retreat, a time that I look forward to yearly, when friends from around the world gather together over a love of the fiber arts, good food, jokes, and lots of hugs. I love the idea of friends knitting the same pattern in their own color palettes, and in the short term, sharing their work virtually with each other. When we are able to gather again in person, we can swap out AIR HUGS for physical ones and admire our knitwear in real life.

8/2020: The current version of the design is V1.1. The only difference from V1.0 to V1.1 is correcting a reference to Color 2 rather than Color 1 in the last line of the italicized text on P. 4. The actual pattern directions were not changed. Thanks!
