Es schneielet, es beielet,
es got en chüele Wind.
D Meitli leged d Händsche a
und Buebe laufed gschwind.

-Swiss Children’s song

It’s snowing!

Winters here in Switzerland often provide the chance for playing in the snow - The storms are often short, but intense.

I designed this wrap with that in mind - a couple flakes to start, and a sudden build-up of heavy snow, only to taper off quest as quickly as it started.

This very large, rectangular wrap is knit on the bias, with alternating lace and color fade panels. The increasing and decreasing lace sections represent the build-up of the snow storm, while the main lace panels represent the body of the storm, with an easy to remember lace pattern repeat.

Of course, the wrap pattern is accompanied by a recipe for coffee panna cotta - an impressive yet incredibly simple recipe to make and enjoy!
