Cottage Wrap Kits
This simple wrap combines two fundamentals of knitting to create a reversible, welted texture: stocking stitch and reverse stocking. It is knitted on the bias, increasing in width as you go, so you can make it any size you like and use any tension of yarn you like – it's a great stash-buster! The pattern may look long and complicated, but it isn't, it's just written with detail for inexperienced knitters and people with short attention spans. The pattern repeat is long, so a chart is included to guide you and help you keep track of where you are in the pattern. You can use any yarn you like, which makes it a great stash buster (see amounts below).
Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced Beginner
If you can make a hat then you should be ready for this wrap, and if you can make a mitten then you definitely shouldn't have any problems. Links are included in the pattern for tutorials on any remotely special skills, but you can also refer to our CURATED LIST OF KNITTING TUTORIALS.
Handmaiden Maiden Hair is a sumptuous yarn with a lot of texture and an innate depth of colour. The single strand of supple silk is wrapped in a light halo of mohair, giving it body, texture, and warmth. It has lot of yardage, and one skein is enough for a cowl. The needle size is flexible, it's a great yarn to play around with tension. Hand dyed in Canada.
