This pattern is the Joji Mystery Wrap pattern for May/June 2017.
The pattern has been unified and is now available in its final format, but all the clues are still available for you to work on if you’d rather do it that way.
Please join all of our discussion groups! We have 1 group available for each clue, and we are still knitting along even though all the clues have been delivered!

This amazing wrap is worked from both ends towards the centre with a super fun chevron construction, and joined as you work (no seaming or kitchener required!).

We have had the best time putting together tons of color combinations, and we have determined that there is not a single bad combo ;) Even the monochromatic versions look stunning!

Approx. 26½ x 72” (66 x 180 cm) blocked.

Yarn: 5 skeins of fingering weight yarn in 5 different colors. The approx. yardage required for each color is as follows:
Color 1 (I used Off-White): 390 yards (356 m).
Color 2 (I used Pink): 250 yards (229 m).
Color 3 (I used a white with speckles): 420 yards (385 m).
Color 4 (I used Purple-Black): 420 yards (385 m).
Color 5 (I used Brown): 300 yards (275 m).
Needles: 2 sets of US 6 (4 mm) circular or straight needle. If you are using circulars, 24”-32” are good lengths, but choose any length you are comfortable with.
Other notions: Stitch markers, stitch holders, waste yarn or an extra cable, tapestry needle, blocking pins or wires.

I recommend making a swatch to see if you like your colors together.
Your working gauge should be 23 sts and 44 rows. BUT your finished (pinned, stretched and blocked out) gauge should be 19 sts and 38 rows.
Both gauges are given to 4” (10 cm) on US 6 (4 mm) needles in Garter st.

You need 5 skeins of yarn in different colors for this wrap.
The possible combinations for this wrap are so vast, and the achieved results can be so diverse… ANY color combination will work and will give you a beautiful piece, but remember this will be a big wrap and you will want to wear it. So go for colors that compliment your wardrobe and you feel happy and beautiful in!
