We’re thrilled to cue the beautiful new Wishing Well palette into our Nine-Note symphony, as we again celebrate rich, flowing color with our generous Nine-Note Seed Stitch Wrap!

This wrap is the perfect showcase for our Nine-Note Bundle, composed of nine skeins that begin with one carefully chosen color. Based on a classic value study, this color crescendo moves from very saturated to very pale tones.

Knit a triangle with the Triangle Garter Wrap; knit in the round with the Arpeggio Cowl; or knit from the center out with the Nine-Note Double Seed Stitch Blanket. You can even combine your bundle with Season Alpaca to make the cleverly striped Rising Tide Scarf

You’re sure to find a favorite color among our dozen intensely beautiful palettes… Perhaps our newest member of the band, Wishing Well, is singing your song? This uplifting and cheerful blue drifts from cerulean to palest sky blue, with every watery shade in between.

The yarn in our Nine-Note Bundle is as soft as can be, starting with the softest merino fiber in the world (its micron count, which measures the fineness and softest of the fiber, is comparable to cashmere!). Combined with incredibly soft baby alpaca, the yarn has a supple softness that’s really irresistible. Its light worsted weight knits up at a lively pace, too!

GAUGE

17½ stitches and 33 rows = 4 inches in seed stitch, blocked

NOTE: To ensure all your stripes are the same length, be sure to reuse your swatch yarn.

SIZE

Finished Dimensions: Approximately 15 inches wide x 68 inches long

NOTES

STITCH MULTIPLE

This pattern is worked over an odd number of stitches.

COLOR SEQUENCE

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.

PATTERN

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 remaining seven 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.
