Good just got better! We dipped Good Wool’s how-the-sheep-grew-them shades into a vat of rainbow and created a cosmos of color, deep in subtlety and rich in zest.

From the verdant glow of Tree Frog to the foggy softness of Pink Dawn, we feel like painting our whole world in Good Wool’s new colors, and our Striped Triangle Garter Wrap proves the perfect canvas!

A combo of three gorgeous colors, plus single row striping, create a reverberant flow from point to face-framing edge, while the generously sized triangle is big enough for some drama and cozy enough to replace a coat in the fall or face a storm in the winter.

Still the same beautiful 100% Andean highland wool at the same reasonable price, dyed Good Wool may be our new old favorite! We couldn’t help playing and put together nine palettes of Striped Triangle Garter Wrap Bundles. Pick the one that makes you feel good!

Materials

Striped Triangle Garter Wrap | Purl Soho
  • 4 skeins of Purl Soho’s Good Wool, 100% Andean highland wool. Each skein is 383 yards/ 100 grams. 
    • Color A: 2 skeins; approximately 766 yards required
    • Color B: 1 skein; approximately 383 yards required
    • Color C: 1 skein; approximately 383 yards required

NOTE: You’ll use nearly full skeins of all three colors. To avoid running short, please double check your gauge, reuse your swatch yarn if necessary, and be conservative with tails!

You’ll also need…

  • US 6 (4 mm), 24- and 40-inch circular needles (NOTE: You can use just the 40-inch needles, but they may be a bit unruly at the beginning of the project when you’re working only a few stitches!)

GAUGE

22 stitches and 44 rows (22 ridges) = 4 inches in garter stitch

SIZE

Finished Length of Wingspan: 73¼ inches

Finished Length of Each Short Side: 52 inches

Finished Length from Cast-On Point to Middle of Bind-Off Edge: 36¾ inches

NOTES

Slip Stitches

Slip all stitches purlwise with yarn in front unless otherwise specified.

Carry Yarn Up Selvage

Do not cut the yarn between stripes in color changing sections. Instead, at the beginning of each wrong-side row, pick up the working yarn from behind the resting yarn so the resting yarn gets carried up the side of the work as you go.

PATTERN

Section 1

With Color A and using a cast on of your choice, cast 2 stitches onto shorter circular needles. We used a basic Long Tail Cast On.

Row 1: K1, knit into front and back (kfb). [3 stitches]

Row 2: Slip 1 (see Notes), kfb, k1. [4 stitches]

Row 3: Slip 1, knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Repeat Row 3 until piece measures approximately 26 inches along selvage edge from cast-on point.

Do not cut Color A.

Section 2

Set-Up Row (wrong side): Slip 1 purlwise with yarn in back (wyib), join Color B and knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Row 1 (right side): Slip 1, then with Color B, knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. Mark this side of the piece with a removeable marker or piece of scrap yarn to indicate the right side. [1 stitch increased]

Row 2 (wrong side): Slip 1, then with Color A and carrying Color B up selvage (see Notes), knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Row 3: Slip 1, then with Color A, knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Row 4: Slip 1, then with Color B and carrying Color A up selvage, knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Row 5: Slip 1, then with Color B, knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Switching to longer circular needles when necessary, repeat Rows 2–5 until piece measures 44½ inches along selvage edge from cast-on point, or if using Good Wool, until approximately 30 yards of Color B remain, ending with Row 5.

Cut Color A.

Section 3

Set-Up Row (wrong side): Slip 1 purlwise wyib, join Color C and knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Row 1 (right side): Slip 1, then with Color C, slip 1, knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Row 2 (wrong side): Slip 1, then with Color B and carrying Color C up selvage, knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Row 5: Slip 1, then with Color C, knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Repeat Rows 2–5 until piece measures 45½ inches along selvage edge from cast-on point, or if using Good Wool, until you have used all of Color B, ending with Row 2.

Cut Color B. 

Section 4

Row 1 (right side): Continuing with Color C, slip 1, knit to last 2 stitches, kfb, k1. [1 stitch increased]

Repeat Row 1 until piece measures 52 inches along selvage edge from cast-on point, or, if using Good Wool, until approximately 10 yards of yarn remain, ending with a wrong side row.

Bind off loosely, going up a needle size if needed to ensure a nice, elastic edge.

Weave in ends, gently wet block, and get cozy!
