Wrap yourself in color! The Made in the Shade Wrap is a “rectangular-ish” wrap knit on the bias. Featuring a fun repeating lace and garter stitch motif, this wrap is playfully designed to feature four complimentary skeins of yarn as you transition across the different shades of color. This project is prefect for diving into your stash and using up those beautiful skeins of hand-dyed yarn you’ve been hoarding for that perfect project. Use subtle differences to go from light to dark or use overlapping speckles to playfully transition from one color to the next.
