Designed in conjunction with Good Wool NZ - a natural dyer located
in New Zealand - this unfussy ‘staple’ triangle wrap is all about home
comforts and warmth. Yarn held double throughout for a thick fabric
which works up quickly; and with a simple all-over texture stitch
pattern, the colourwork keeps changing often enough not to be
boring - but still uncomplicated enough to watch TV or chat to friends while you work.

Worked bottom-up, the slipped stitch ribs drag the colour of the previous section up into the new section giving a streaked effect which blends the fading sections.

Uses 10ply worsted in 100g skeins: you will need 2x colour 1, 3x colour 2, and 2x colour 3. Wind the yarn into separate 100g cakes before you start and leave both ends of each cake accessible. Knit on 8mm needles (80cm cable used).
