Fair Isle Wrap
Difficulty: Experienced Knitter
Size: 56x20 inches
Instructions: Chart with written directions
This rectangular wrap features an overall traditional Fair Isle design that is worked in solid colors of worsted-weight yarn. The background is created with variegated worsted-weight yarns.
The accessory is knit in the round with a seven-stitch steek that is cut, folded back, and stitched in place before blocking.
Lighter weight yarns can be substituted, with the stitch and row counts adjusted for the change in gauge.
I realize that the Poems Silk is a discontinued yarn, but it is available if you search online. Any other worsted-weight variegated wool yarn would be a suitable substitute. Just decide on some colorways that appeal to you! You’ll need just over 325 yards / 300 meters of each of the background (variegated) colorways.
