Pattern Details

This wrap uses a simple four row pattern to create a stunning visual effect. Stripes provide color contrast; shaping bends the stripes into chevron patterns; and the final addition of short rows changes the thickness of each stripe. As the stripes become thick and thin, the proportion of colors changes, creating a herringbone motif. The reverse side looks just as neat as the front because there is no stranding, or slipped stitches. The Ombre Shawl Ball adds just enough color variation to make the stitch look special. This project has 2 sets of instructions with different advantages: Knit/Purl – the edges are neater when the pattern is worked with some purl rows. In this version, the yarns travel up opposite sides of the work and do not need to break. All Knit – in this option, long loops are formed from carrying Color B up the side of the work or Color B breaks after each stripe and ends are woven in as you go. There is no purling in this version, but it is not as neat looking. Sample is worked using knit/purl instructions.

am a big fan of exploring new techniques and stitches, especially when there’s color involved.
