Feature Pattern of the Week - Summery Knit Wraps
- Posted on
Glykos by Dawn Henderson, The Fibre Co. Luma, Ciel
Irish Sea by Susanna Winter, The Fibre Co. Meadow
Say hello to summer with a light wrap. Each of our three featured wraps is knit with one of The Fibre Co.’s unique blends to achieve the perfect drape, breathability & stitch definition.
Glykos by Dawn Henderson is knit with 5 skeins of Luma, a lightweight blend of Merino wool, organic cotton, linen & silk. You will need a size US 6, 32” circular needle, as well as a cable needle to knit the simple, rhythmic honeycomb cable design.
Irish Sea by Susanna Winter is a timeless triangle shawl with simple garter & delicate lace traveling down the edge of the shawl. The knit fabric is soft with lovely drape, yet has a rustic appearance. The shawl is knit in Meadow, an unexpected blend of wool, baby llama, silk & linen. The shawl has two sizes that require just 1 or 2 skeins of Meadow & a size US 4, 32” circular needle.
Last, but not least, South Head by Sabine Frisch is a reversible wrap with stunning eyelets & soothing garter stitch knit in meltingly soft Canopy Fingering; a blend of baby alpaca, Merino wool & bamboo. The wrap requires 6 skeins of Canopy Fingering & size US 2.5 & 3, 32” circular needles.
Just in for summer shawl knitting are also new shawl sticks, pins & cuffs from JUL Designs. Perfect for adorning and/or securing wraps & shawls in place.
See these summer wraps (and many more!) on display until June 8th at our newly opened store in South Elgin, IL as we host The Fibre Co. Trunk Show. The entire range of Fibre Co. yarns are also now on display, as well as the JUL Designs Collection.
