Half + Half Triangles Wrap in New Colors
You knit for the joy of it, for the comfort and the beauty. And for years, so many of you have shared stories about how the Half + Half Triangles Wrap has brought the joy of knitting to your needles and your lives. You’ve delighted in the incredible earthy beauty of Linen Quill and its many glorious colors. And so, for the love of knitting, we are happy to offer a new collection of bundles for this wonderful wrap!
One of the pleasures of knitting a Half + Half Triangles Wrap is the surprise of its construction (all knit stitches plus the opportunity to learn a new technique!). You cast on the full length of the wrap and shape the first triangle with short rows. Once your triangle comes to a point, you knit across the entire diagonal, picking up and knitting each stitch with its wrap.
Then onto your next color and the second triangle, which you also build up with short rows. With that triangle complete, you bind off and snuggle into your gorgeous wrap.
Our Half + Half Triangles Wrap pattern is your ticket to an easy and inventive knit, but the true impact of this project is due to one-of-a-kind Linen Quill!
Fifty percent fine highland wool, 35% alpaca, and 15% linen, Linen Quill’s complexity and beauty make it a customer favorite… Maybe it’s already yours!
It has springiness and durability from the wool, softness and drape from the alpaca, and cozy warmth from both.
And the linen… Only 15% of the content but critical to what makes this yarn so special! Its tendency to sprout out of the strand lends a very beautiful earthy feel, while the way linen takes dye differently than animal fibers adds depth to every color.
Linen Quill has a humongous palette of over fifty colors, and from such plenty, we had a blast making sixteen new bundles, for a total of nineteen Half + Half Triangles Wrap Bundles!
Pick your favorite (or two or three…We know more than one knitter who has completed 7 Half + Half Triangle Wraps!), and cast on for this beloved knit!

You will knit the one triangle, followed by the other. All the shaping is done with short rows and there is no sewing or assembly.
You can alter the length of the wrap by casting on any number of stitches. The width dimensions will be approximately 90% of the length, and when you’re finished, the piece should block out to an approximate square.
SHORT ROWS: WRP-T (WRAP AND TURN)
Keeping yarn in back, slip next stitch purlwise from left needle to right needle. Bring yarn to front. Return slipped stitch to left needle. Turn work so wrong side is facing you.
To see this technique in action, visit our Short Row Tutorial and follow along with the wrap and turn on the knit side section (at 0:30 seconds), except do not bring the yarn to the back before you turn.
KNIT WRAPPED STITCH WITH WRAP
Keeping yarn in back, pick up the wrap with the right needle from front to back, then insert the needle into the wrapped stitch knitwise. Knit the stitch and wrap together. Find step-by-step photos of this technique under the Picking Up The Wrapped Stitch On The Knit Side section in our Short Row Tutorial!
