With Novella’s mesmerizing pools of color under a wash of glowing tussock, our Soft Stripes Wrap tells a story… One of beauty, inspiration, and the pleasure of simple knitting.

You knit this wrap with our Soft Stripes Wrap Bundle, all in easy stockinette, holding two strands throughout, just Tussock on the ends and Tussock with Novella for the rest.

This gorgeous swath of fabric is all about the yarn. The shifting colors of self-striping Novella will keep you enraptured. The colors stripe and blend, flowing into one another as you anticipate what comes next.

And you’ll love the gentle watercolor-y beauty Tussock adds. Its lustrous color is vibrant on the ends and merges with Novella’s dynamic hues in the middle, bringing the pieces of the tale together.

The fibers of these two yarns are an exquisite mix. They both have the strength and radiance of mulberry silk, while Novella adds extra fine merino for bounce and body, and Tussock’s super fine kid mohair lends a gorgeous halo to the fabric’s surface. Altogether, an incredibly soft and lovely combination.

19 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch, with Yarn A doubled

19 stitches and 27 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch, holding a strand of Yarns A and B together


Scarf (Wrap)

Finished Dimensions: 8 (16) inches wide x 70 inches long

Sample: We knit the Wrap size.



This project works over any number of stitches.


For the first and last 2 inches of this pattern, you will hold two strands of Yarn A (Tussock) together. Either pull from two separate balls for this, or pull from the inside and outside of one ball.

For the rest of the piece, you will hold one strand of Yarn A (Tussock) together with one strand of Yarn B (Novella).


With two strands of Yarn A held together (see Notes), loosely cast on 38 (76) stitches. We used a basic Long Tail Cast On.

Row 1 (wrong side): K1, p1, k1, purl to last three stitches, k1, p1, k1.

Row 2 (right side): K2, p1, knit to last three stitches, p1, k2.

Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until piece measures approximately 2 inches from cast-on edge.

Cut one strand of Yarn A and join Yarn B.

Holding Yarn A and Yarn B together, continue in pattern until piece measures 68 inches from cast-on edge, or if using Novella, until you have used the entirety of Yarn B.

Cut Yarn B and join another strand of Yarn A.

With two strands of Yarn A held together, continue in pattern for approximately 2 inches, ending with a wrong-side row.

With right side facing you, bind off loosely knitwise.


Weave in all ends and gently wet block.
