The Forest Hills Wrap is part of my Spring 2018 Remarkable Yarns Collection: a set of three accessories and four sweater patterns designed to work equally well with both Rosy Green Wool and Crave Yarns Caravan. It’s a generously-sized, luscious-to-wear wrap, worked in simple Broken Rib and Garter Stitch with an unusual construction. Alternate instructions for a scarf version are also included.
Wrap Dimensions: 65’’ (165 cm) in length, and 27’’ (68.5 cm) wide
Alternate Scarf Dimensions: 91’’ (231 cm) in length, and 12” (30.5 cm) wide
(Wrap is shown.)
24 sts and 32 rows = 4” (10 cm) in Broken Rib (and Stockinette), worked flat.
The Forest Hills Wrap, like the rest of the Remarkable Yarns spring 2018 collection, is meant to work equally well with two yarns:
- Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy [100% Virgin Wool, Organic Merino Extra Fine; machine washable] 350 yds / 320 m per 100g
- Crave Yarns Caravan [70%SW Fine Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Camel, 10% Mulberry Silk] 354 yards / 324 m per 100g
It’s shown in Cheeky Merino Joy in the color “Night Sky”. You will need 5 hanks of either yarn to make the wrap, and approximately 3 hanks of either yarn to make the scarf.
The wrap is constructed in 5 (7) alternating segments of Broken Rib worked flat; this wrap will require both picking up stitches and simple mattress stitch to complete. Diagrams for assembly are included in the PDF.
