Harvest Dreams Wrap
Harvest Dreams Wrap by Sarah Schira
Moss stitch and cables belong together, and I have long wanted to find a playful way to mix them. I love wraps on the bias as well as cables on the bias, so it was an obvious choice to bring them all together.
I hope you also enjoy the rhythm of alternating textures and cables of this wrap. It is knit on the bias using 3 colors, then the sides are picked up and knit on in the 4th.
Part of the Dreamscapes Shawl Collection. This four-pattern collection was inspired by dreaming of travel while knitting. The texture, lines, and colors combine with rhythmic knitting processes to help you dream yourself into your favourite places.
Instructions for the cabled sections are both written and charted and are on separate pages for flexibility in printing.
