This wrap was inspired by my appetite for color. When I am faced with a wall of yarn, I rarely have the ability to reign in my hunger. I want everything! On more than one occasion, I have left a yarn shop with my arms full of mini skeins, because I just couldn’t commit to one color (or even two), but I never know what to knit once I have all my minis. The Tasting Menu wrap was designed to solve this mini (tee hee) conundrum. Get a little taste of a whole lot of delicious yarn and make one satisfying knit.

This wrap is a trapezoid, making it easy to wear and style. This wrap was designed to create three color fades for a dramatic finished garment, and genuine color play. The pattern includes detailed instructions for making your color selections, putting your yarn in order, and creating a colorful wrap that is just right for you. With stretches of garter stitch, lovely stockinette, fun tiny bobbles, and a touch of lace, this pattern is seamless and fun to knit. BONUS: The Tasting Menu is a PERFECT stash buster for all those leftover bits and bobs you have hiding in your stash.
