PROJECTS 4 Free Simple, Gorgeous Wraps


Fibre Co Meadow

Sometimes you you just need something gorgeous and simple, low on brain activity, but high rewards. The following projects has got that in spades! Uncomplicated knits in a gorgeous yarn make for zen knitting and a finished project you’ll love. Our suggested yarn for these projects is Fibre Co Meadow (ON SALE TO SEPT 6), a sumptuous blend of merino wool, baby llama, silk, and linen. Tune in to your favourite podcast, an audiobook, or hang out with your people, and let the stitches fly! FYI: The following patterns call for a fingering weight yarn, but Fibre Co Meadow is a heavy lace weight and we think it will be a great substitute for these patterns.

Alternates/Yarn Subs

If you can’t handle any animal fibre in your yarn, a good sub for these patterns is Quince & Co Sparrow (ON SALE TO SEPT 6), which is 100% linen and feels silky soft after being washed in the machine.

If you want a yarn that’s a bit more economical, try BC Garn Bio Balance (ON SALE TO SEPT 6), a blend of organic cotton & wool – get two skeins of bio-balance for each one required by the pattern.

Open Air Wrap

A basic, open stitch makes for a super pretty wrap or scarf, and when you do it over and over you get very good at it pretty fast! It’s always best practice to use LIFELINES when knitting lace of any kind – it reduces frustration and tears when mistakes happen.

Half + Half Triangles Wrap

To make sure you get a colour combo that works, I sat in the window and paired off the colours that make sense together; the results are below. I’ve only used the light grey (Bedstraw) and natural (Queen Anne’s Lace) as a contrast where the colour REALLY needed it. Grass Seed & Hedgehog proved extremely versatile as a neutral … I now pronounce Khaki as the new grey! I personally prefer the look of two colours that are closer together, but I’m not in charge of making the world turn so I put together as many options as I thought looked good. That said, the store is open, so feel free to come in and use your own eyes, I always love seeing other perspectives!
