GAUGE
16.5 sts and 27 rows = 4” in Stockinette St, blocked. Please see “Important Notes” for more information on how to wash and block this yarn to achieve the best results.

NEEDLES
Size US 9 (5.5 mm): long straight or 24” circular. The piece is knit flat, so choose the needle type according to your personal preference. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

NOTIONS
1 stitch marker, tapestry needle, large stitch holder or scrap yarn, blocking materials (blocking mats & pins, or whatever works for you!).

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • This piece starts in the center with the lightest color (A), and then progresses outward to the darkest color (D). Please keep this in mind when planning your color arrangement.

  • Please block your swatch the same way you intend to block the finished item, and then measure your gauge. This yarn can change substantially depending on if and how it is blocked. This piece requires blocking to finalize the rectangle shape, otherwise you will have a V-shaped wrap.

  • This item is loosely knit to accentuate the lovely drape of this unique fiber blend and to provide it room to “bloom” during washing and blocking. Specific washing instructions are in pattern.

  • If you are substituting yarns, please use a light worsted weight yarn, despite the fact that the gauge implies something thicker. I also encourage you to use something with a little drape to it. If you are using an 100% wool you won’t get the same lovely drape shown. For blocking purposes, you will have more success if you use natural fibers.
