This pattern was inspired by the view from my lower Manhattan window of towering skyscrapers, each peppered with windows of different sizes and shapes. Boxes and Towers uses construction similar to log cabin knitting where bold strips of colors combine to create a playful, graphic wrap. Have fun selecting six colors of Miss Babs Yowza Minis to create your own unique combination, or choose a 6-color set.

Miss Babs Yowza Minis 100% Superwash Merino wool; 200 yd/2.8 oz (182m/80g) skeins
1 skein in each of 6 colors, A-F, shown in A: Polished Stone B: Oakmoss C: Hayrick D: Earthenware E: Slot Canyon F: Seal Point

Or approximately 200 yards/182 meters of DK weight yarn in each of 6 different colors.
