The Sherwood Forest Wrap is off the blocking boards and ready to wear. Jellybean and I put it through its paces for its finished object photos. It was more challenging that we anticipated. It has lovely drape and really showcases the Knitcircus hand dyed gradient very well though.
After much debate, Jellybean and I decided this was the best way to wear the “scarf”. I simply just folded in half and secured with my shawl cuff. This way you can see all the colors and the different textures. Speaking of textures I did see some gauge changes in this project. There are some loose spots and some tight spots. Jellybean told me that just makes it extra unique. He’s a pretty smart kiddo.
This project has me noodling another rectangle wrap. I will take what I learned an adapt a sort of “design my own” wrap. I have a gradient set in my stash from BlueberryChickYarn in a set of purples. It has less yardage than the KnitCircus skein but I think with some tinkering with the stitch count and pattern repeat sizes I could make a wider and shorter stole to wrap up in. But that may have to be a wishful knitting idea until I work through some of my unfinished objects. Who knows…maybe I’ll just cast on all the things!
Pattern: Pride Wrap by Nicole Tavares (best for at least an advanced beginner because the pattern has errors)
Needles: US 7s
Yarn: KnitCircus Trampoline base in the discontinued Sherwood Forest Color
I used all but 2 yards of the 660 yard cake of yarn for this heavily modified version of the pattern.
