It should be the other way around. We should have been making our summery things in January!
I did start this wrap in April, I have been planning to make it since I was shown the yarn in January.
The pattern is Cordelia from Classic Elite Yarns. It was an easy knit, but I have to admit that near the end I really pushed to get it done as the one row of K2tog, YO across the row was a bit of a drag!
The pattern does call for 4 balls of the Bella Lino yarn, but you could easily make it from 3. Just remember to leave 25 grams for the last 2 rows and the bind off!
I think this will become part of my summer wardrobe!
How doI know that you need 25 grams for the last few rows? Its because I have that much left over. I really liked using the yarn and thought I could do something else with what was left. First I tried a cowl with an interesting construction, but it wasn't working out.
The I tried to make a triangle shawl, scarf thing but I wasn't happy with that either.
So then I tried something really radical, I got out the crochet hook and decided to attempt a summer cowl. The 25 grams worked up really quickly, the pattern was okay. In my hurry to get something made I managed to create a loop with multiple twists.
It really needs as second ball, but for now it's in 'time out' until I figure something else out.
I started this instead:
Biscotte & Cie sock yarn, the colour way is called 'Hallucination'. It's lovely to work with I might try an after thought heel to keep the stripes even!
Go create something beautiful!
See you soon!
