We all want the magical project that includes just enough to keep us interested, but not so intense that we dread picking up the needles. When I began imagining what I would want in the perfect knitting project, I thought about garter, simple lace motifs, ability to use gradient colors or mini skeins, and then a sprinkling of beads. Once I cast on and started knitting, I knew THAT’S MY JAM!

That’s My Jam is a rectangular wrap knit flat from side to side. It features a wave pattern with a gradient theme sandwiched in between a delicious jammy tonal with eyelet sections and optional beadwork. The wrap concludes with a striped mesh to use up every last bit of your gradient. The mesh can be worked with a flared or consistent edge.
