Nine-Note Seed Stitch Wrap in New Colors
Because every great performance deserves an encore, we have revisited our beautiful Nine-Note Bundles and added five new tunes to the songbook. Please welcome the colors Pomelo, Begonia, Beautyberry, Bluegrass, and Sketchbook!
One stunning thing to make with a bundle is our Nine-Note Seed Stitch Wrap, a color crescendo that moves from very pale to very saturated tones. Its knits and purls show off this gorgeous gradient, smoothing out the transitions and keeping the beat.
A lovely mix of 80% extra fine merino and 25% baby alpaca, the yarn in our Nine-Note Bundle is as soft as can be, warm, and hearty. Its light worsted weight knits up at a lively pace, too!
The new color, Pomelo (above), is a yellow-green citrusy splash to brighten a cold day, while Bluegrass (below) takes you through a clear sky deepening into night.
Begonia (above, middle) is a warm floral pop. Beautyberry (above, right) is a vivid mood lifter, and Sketchbook (below) is cool jazz all the way. Each Nine-Note Bundle comes packaged in a Purl Soho tote bag, with a postcard that links to this free pattern. In every way, a gift that will get a standing ovation!

This pattern is worked over an odd number of stitches.
You will start with the darkest color in the color sequence, then move on to the color one shade lighter until you have used all nine skeins, from dark to light.
Starting with the darkest color, cast on 65 stitches. We used a basic Long Tail Cast On.
Row 1: *K1, p1, repeat from * to last stitch, k1.
Repeat Row 1 until piece measures about 7½ inches from cast-on edge or until skein nearly runs out.
*Right-Side Row: Join next lighter color in the sequence (see Notes), and work Row 1.
Repeat Row 1 until this stripe measures the same as first stripe, ending with a wrong-side row (i.e. on the same side you finished the first skein so that all tails are along the same selvage).
Repeat from * working through entire sequence of eight skeins.
Bind-Off Row: K1, *p1, pass first stitch over, k1, pass first stitch over, repeat from * to end of row.
Weave in ends and gently block.
