I want that wrap!

September 11 2015 – thisisknit

This gorgeous knit was one of the stars of Yarn Dating 2015, and no wonder: it's a combination of a simple, elegant pattern, a little buttony magic and a lovely new yarn. The pattern is I Want That Wrap, and it's a joy to knit. It's a very wide simple rib, so it's a terrific beginner's pattern. And it's TV knitting at its best - no chart to follow or shaping to work, and the result is cozy and smart. Even better, the pattern is a free download on Ravelry! The yarn is a new offering from Studio Donegal, called Donegal Wool Spinning Company, and this project used 2.5 skeins (knit on 6mm needles). It's a lighter version of Donegal Aran Tweed, with a new plied construction and a lovely range of colours. It'll work for any aranweight pattern, and we think it's going to be a firm favorite. And the final touch to this project is an orderly row of buttons, and they really make it, don't they? In short, we all want this wrap!
