Thank you for your interest in the Umbrella Sky Wrap pattern!

This pattern was inspired by the Umbrella Sky Project art installation in Águeda, Portugal. Hundreds of colorful umbrellas, suspended above narrow city streets, were used to give respite from the sun and create a playful atmosphere.

This project benefits from the use of hand dyed tonal and speckled yarns but would also be beautiful if done entirely in tonals.

There are so many ways for you to make this pattern your own! Share your photos on Facebook and Instagram with #LadianneDesigns. I can’t wait to see what you make!

Designer Notes: Stitches are added at the beginning of each star stitch section and removed at the end of each star stitch section to compensate for a gauge difference. The use of a larger needle size also helps mitigate this difference. There is a set of instructions included in the pattern for the star stitch technique used in this piece.
