Wedges Wrap

Combine your favorite colors to create a very special piece that will keep you warm – in winter as well as in summer nights. It's a rectangular wrap or wide scarf with a bold graphical pattern which is knitted with short rows and intarsia technique.

This pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry and on LoveKnitting. The PDF includes a written version and a shorthand version of the pattern. It also contains a chart to show how the short rows stack up to form the wedges.






Materials
  • about 250 grams of DK weight yarn in your main color (I used Rico Essentials Merino DK, but other yarns will do as well)
  • about 100 grams of DK weight yarn in contrast color 1
  • about 100 grams of DK weight yarn in contrast color 2
  • about 100 grams of DK weight yarn in contrast color 3
  • 4.5mm knitting needles (I used circulars, but straight will do as well)

Size
Unblocked the scarf measures about 40 cm in width and 185 cm in length. I guess blocked it would be about 5 cm wider and 20 cm longer.
(Even though I'm a firm believer in blocking (it evens out the stitches and make a garment look better), I didn't block this wrap for a number of reasons. It was big enough already and since I used merino which stretches quite a bit. Beside the stitch tension looked good and (on a more practical note) the blocking mat I use wasn't quite big enough.)

Necessary Skills
Besides being able to knit plain garter stitch you need the following knitting skills to complete this wrap:
  • Short rows with wrap and turn
  • Intarsia
Helpful skills (but not absolutely necessary):
  • Weaving in ends while knitting
  • Stranding yarn upwards

      It's not a very difficult pattern, but you need to be able to do short rows and intarsia <3
