As even a casual follower of Purl Soho probably knows, we love a swath of stockinette fabric, and nothing does it better than our simple-as-pie Elementary Wrap pattern!
For this version, we add a layer of visual complexity without complicating the pattern itself by combining a strand of our hand-dyed Posy with a strand of mohair-silk Tussock. The effect is a mysterious stew of color and texture, a beautiful blend of all the things we love about fiber!
We’ve put together the ingredients for your own fiber feast with seven Elementary Wrap In Posy + Tussock Bundles. Each one combines colors that bring surprising flavors to the finished piece and make simple stockinette a little something more!
Designed for Purl Soho by Joelle Hoverson.
Our Elementary Wrap in Posy + Tussock Bundle has enough yarn to make the wider 18¼-inch Wrap version of this project. It includes…
- Yarn A: 4 skeins of Purl Soho’s Posy, 75% superwash merino, 15% cashmere, and 10% nylon. Each skein is 318 yards; approximately 636 (1,272) yards required.
- Yarn B: 4 skeins of Purl Soho’s Tussock, 60% super fine kid mohair and 40% silk. Each skein is 328 yards; approximately 607 (1,214) yards required.
