You are JUST purchasing the schematic! Use this to plan your wrap/shawl if you like.

The pattern will drop Dec. 1 - just in time for our NO EB December KAL(EB stands for Egregious Bulls&ittery and is Sharon from Security’s term) in the Casapinka group here. No need to sign up, just come and have fun. Currently, Sharon is on strike over Cafeteria Disagreements and we are currently in arbitration. Note that the name should be ANOVA (and has to do with Sharon’s Statistical Cafeteria Disagreements and says she might explain more if she feels like it but not to count on it ) but Rav doesn’t allow all all caps as a title.

This is marled and requires no knowledge of stranded knitting and is great for beginning knitters! I’ve shown both sides worn as the front and back (I was in CA and ran out of yarn so just used what I could get hold of if you’re wondering about the speckled yarn in the first pic.)

Note that the wrap is written to be 2” shorter (closer to the belt area) than mine since mine stretched more than I thought it would.

There are two patterns included with this: 1. A Seamed Wrap (shown at left) and 2. A Rectangular shawl. The shawl was not tested but was made available in case you’d rather do that shape. You can use 2 schematics to plan out the shawl version.

This was designed so you can use scrap yarn, random minis, an Advent, Hannukah, Halloween, Valentine set etc. Here are some things to consider:

The wrap has 29 stripes. Each stripe takes 5g of a fingering weight contrasting color so if you have a standard 20g/80 yard mini-skein, you can get 4 stripes per mini-skein. So, you can use:

A set of 8/10 minis
A set of 24 and repeat 5 of them
29 differing scraps etc.

The shawl uses 46 stripes.

Yarn Amounts
Wrap 23 X 50” / 58.5 x 127cm
Background color: Approximately 1100 yards (1400 if you want to do the optional cowl neck in the background color.) You can see that on the “back” (it’s reversible) I ran out of my main color and I was in California so I just used a different color and I like it. I used a set from an undisclosed dyer (can’t spoil anything) combined with some of my own minis.

Mini-skeins: 29 stripes X 5g per stripe of a Contrasting Color.

Rectangular Shawl - 18 X 76” / 46 X 30 cm.
Background color: Approximately 1100 yards
Mini -skeins - 46 stripes X 5g per stripe of a Contrasting Color.

For the Wrap, one edge is ribbed (the seamed edge) and the bottom edge is an i-cord. The shawl has I-cord at both edges.
