Colour Me In - Wrap PDF
The Colour Me In wrap is perfect for those cool summer nights - whether thrown over a dress on holiday or wrapped around your shoulders as you enjoy a drink in the garden. It will also serve as a go-to garment for the winter, doubling up as a super cozy scarf.
The simple knit pattern uses only knit, purl and slipped stitches making it ideal for the beginner knitter. Worked flat on a long circular needle the Colour Me In wrap is ideal for using up smaller amounts of yarn. Each of the 5 coloured sections uses 20g / 0.70oz (75 yds / 69m) of fingering weight or 4 ply yarn, you can either work as a gradient or mix-and-match whatever you have in your stash. You could use smaller amounts too and just change colours when you run out.
You will need 150g / 5.3oz of contrast colour for the borders and plain stockinette section. If you have more you can just keep going to make a longer wrap. Basically anything goes with this pattern!
