Museum Quarter Wrap

My Museum Quarter Wrap combines bold colour, short row shaping and intarsia to create a dramatic optical effect. The wrap is inspired by a stunning installation by Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz Diez (1923-2019) on the steps next to MUMOK, the Museum of Modern Art in Vienna’s Museum Quarter. Carlos Cruz Diez is well known for his amazing colour work and large scale public installations all over the world. Bright colours were applied to each step, giving the impression of depth and width and inspiring both the shape and pattern of my wrap design. 

In my Museum Quarter Wrap, short row shaping allows the sections of vibrant colours to be placed next to each other. By also using intarsia technique, two shades can meet in the centre of the shawl, adding a distinctive colour dimension to the wrap. This trapezium-shaped wrap begins with the lower border, worked in garter stitch. The pattern then changes to stocking stitch for the two contrast shades, with a garter stitch ridge worked in the main shade. The wrap edgings are worked in garter stitch. The wrap gradually grows in width as stitches are increased. Once the full width is reached, the pattern continues without increases.
