Pattern - Auri Wrap, by Hilary Smith Callis, ready to ship
Auri Wrap by Hilary Smith Callis
Knit yourself a luscious wrap in squishy garter stitch. Color transitions in the shawl are dramatized by striping them together, making a "fade" kind of effect. This would be an ideal project knit from (3) coordinating colors of Knitcircus semi-solid skeins.
From the designer: "Reminiscent of the colors of ocean mist in the early morning, Auri (Ionic Greek for breeze) is a large wrap with a simple three-color striping pattern that creates a beautiful gradient. The wrap is knit in Garter Stitch from the top down and is shaped with alternating increase rows. Short rows help give Auri height without too much length across the wingspan and the resulting shape is crescent-like, but asymmetrical, which gives it a unique look and allows it to be worn easily without long ends on both sides."
The pattern is flexible if you'd like to add in extra yarn to make it bigger or bind off sooner if you're running out of yarn.
Callis used a total of 850 yards of fingering weight yarn in her wrap. You could pick out (3) different colors of semi-solids (look here for ready-to-ship options and here for dyed-to-order options) in fingering weight 100g skeins.
These patterns are printed in booklet form on high-quality, heavy-duty paper with color photographs.
