Not only for people who are allergic or opposed to animal fibers, our Cotton Pure is also for those who just love the fresh and non-itchy feel of cotton. Here, combining Egret White and Mineral Blue, the dark side of our Latticework Wrap is a star-flecked night sky, while the light side is an ethereal web laid over that dark field.

That web is created by a Two-Color Honeycomb Brioche Stitch, a wonderfully dimensional pattern. We offer you a hand to hold as you work this stitch for the first time with our new video tutorial. A bit of a challenge for beginners but just look at the payoff. Every time someone compliments your Latticework Wrap, you get to say, “Thanks, I made it!”

Designed for Purl Soho by Jake Canton.

Materials

  • Main Color (MC): 3 skeins of Purl Soho’s Cotton Pure, 100% Pima cotton. We used Egret White.
  • Contrast Color (CC): 3 skeins of Cotton Pure. We used Mineral Blue.
  • US 4, 20-, 24- or 32-inch circular needles

Gauge

19 stitches = 4 inches in Two-Color Honeycomb Brioche stitch

Size

Finished Dimensions: 16 inches wide x 60 inches long

NOTE: With six skeins of Cotton Pure, you’ll have enough yarn to make your wrap approximately 12 inches longer. Just keep knitting!

Notes

Slip Stitches

Slip all slipped stitches purlwise unless indicated in the pattern.

Changing Colors

When changing colors, carry the new yarn up the selvedge in back of the old yarn.

Turn and Slide

Each row in this pattern starts with the instructions to either “Turn” or “Slide” the work:

“Turning the work” means to do what you would normally do when knitting rows with circular needles. That is to say, transfer the needle from your left hand into your right and the needle from your right hand into your left, and flip the work around so the opposite side is facing you.

“Sliding the work” means to keep the same side of the work facing you, pushing all the stitches to the right end of the circular needles. Without turning the work, start the new row as you normally would.

You will know that you’re doing this right if the yarn you need to complete the next row is magically there waiting for you!

Brioche Abbreviations

YOS [yarn over slip]: Bring yarn forward, slip 1 purlwise, bring yarn over right needle.

bk2tog (brioche knit 2 together): Knit the next stitch together with its paired yarn over.

bp2tog (brioche purl 2 together): Purl the next stitch together with its paired yarn over.
