Embrace your favorite colorway! The Lost Treasure wrap incorporates slip stitches to showcase variegated yarns without color pooling. The pop of a contrast stripe in the garter sections as well as in the textured sections adds interest and marries the color transitions. This wrap is a wonderful way to take advantage of the variegated yarns we love!

Set at an intermediate skill level the pattern uses knit, purl, and slip stitches as well as increases and decreases on each end of a right side row. It is an easy, relaxing knit with enough variety and color changes to keep it interesting.

YARN
Main Color: Miss Babs Yummy 2-ply (100% Superwash Merino; 800 yards/730 meters/8 ounces/230 grams), 2 skeins of a variegated colorway -- shown in Lost Treasure.
Contrast Color: Miss Babs Yummy 2-ply 400 yards/365 meters/4 ounces/115 grams), 1 skein of a complementing but contrasting solid/semisolid colorway -- shown in White Peppercorn.
Contrast Stripe: Miss Babs Yummy 2-ply 133/121 meters/1.3 ounces/38 grams, 1 toe of a color that complements BUT CONTRASTS WITH BOTH THE MAIN COLOR AND the CONTRAST COLOR. You want this color to “Pop”. Shown in Rain Forest

Or approximately 800 yards/730 meters of variegated main color, 400 yards/365 meters of solid/semi solid contrast color and 133 yards/121 meters of a “Pop” color that will complement yet contrast with both.
