Like a walk over irregular terrain, in knitting there are sometimes meditative rolling hills and then perhaps a mountain pass that commands your full attention. Our gorgeous Bias Wrap is this kind of journey, rich in texture and techniques!
This pattern covers lots of ground, including twisted-half-rib ends, carved into chevron shapes by short row shaping. The middle section is a stockinette sprint, knit on the bias, with an increase at each edge and a double decrease in the middle that creates a pretty ridge down the length of the wrap.
The pairing of yarn and project here is a natural. Our beautiful Linen Quill knits a compelling landscape of multi textured charm. We used the Vintage Celadon color, a gorgeous, watery blue-green blend, but explore the entire palette of over 30 colors, each its own adventure… Pick up four of your favorite!
