Feature Pattern of the Week - Umbra

Umbra Wrap by Kristin Ford
Shibui Lunar held with Tweed Silk Cloud, color Velvet

Lighten up with the new Shibui Umbra wrap by Kristin Ford. The piece may be worn draped across the shoulders for a traditional look or wrap and wear as a scarf. The pattern gets the cool “striped” effect by holding Shibui Lunar together with Tweed Silk Cloud & then dropping the Lunar to knit with just the Silk Cloud.

The wrap is simple to knit and feels amazing next to skin because of the high amount of silk in the yarn. You will need 1 skein of Shibui Lunar (silk & extra fine Merino wool) & 2 skeins of Shibui Tweed Silk Cloud or regular Silk Cloud, as well as size US 8, 32” or 40” circular needle.

Enjoy the pattern free with the purchase of the yarn for the project!
