Riverflow is a gloriously simple wrap with an all over squishy stitch pattern and addictive colour progression. The ombre effect is built from four separate colours and a clever marriage of striping and working on the bias to create an almost seamless transition between the skeins. The cohesiveness also comes from the natural pigments of Dovecote Yarn’s Polwarth/Silk blend, which glisten like fresh river water coming down off the mountains on a sunny day. Although written for a DK weight yarn, this wrap could easily be worked in a range of weights, from wispy and light to chunky and warm.
