For yarns you just want to combine…

I designed this simple wrap for two reasons: 1) I came across the new Wollmeise Rolls with their compelling, slow colour changes, and 2) I wanted a project simple enough that I could do “knitting and…” I knit and talked. Knit and read. Knit and watched TV. Knit and played board games. It was a lovely process, and now the product is lovely!

If you want to use 100g skeins, I’ve written the pattern for use with 3 individual skeins as well. It’s simple to adjust for length or width, and is a great place to play with leftovers and mini-skeins.
