Moss on the Old Oak
This wrap just caught my attention on Ravelry and I felt like I had to share. It’s so cozy and pretty, wouldn’t it be the perfect addition to a fall wardrobe? I’m visualizing myself throwing it on over jeans and a sweater and sauntering out the door (this is my fantasy life, it involves a lot of knitwear and walking to nowhere to do nothing).
It is made with one of my favourites, Malabrigo Rios. Rios is soft, smooth, and squishy – in other words a delight wort work with and to wear. It’s made with machine washable Uruguayan merino wool, which is then hand dyed. Yummy! If you’re on a budget and want something a bit more modestly priced try using Cascade 220 Heathers (ON SALE NOW), Cascade 220 Superwash Heathers, or Berroco Vintage – they all have the same yardage and will give you great results.
The pattern is discounted ($3US/$4CAD) until the end of Friday July 22, so be sure to pick it up now if you are interested because the brice will be going up!
78.5 inches from wingtip to wingtip and 42 inches from neck to center point.
