Harvest Dreams Wrap
Moss stitch and cables belong together, and I have long wanted to find a playful way to mix them. I love wraps on the bias as well as cables on the bias, so it was an obvious choice to bring them all together.
I hope you also enjoy the rhythm of alternating textures and cables of this wrap. It is knit on the bias using 3 colours, then the sides are picked up and knit on in the 4th.
Part of the Dreamscapes Shawl Collection. This four-pattern collection was inspired by dreaming of travel while knitting. The texture, lines, and colours combine with rhythmic knitting processes to help you dream yourself into your favourite places.
