This week's pattern crush is the Lamina Wrap by the talented Ambah O'Brien. The wrap is a fantastic way to add colour to your wardrobe; it's also a lot of fun to knit. We have dyed up ten combos using two of our favourite bases, Uptown Sock and Classy:
From the top (Uptown Sock)
From the top (Classy)
Main Colour (MC): 420yd / 384m;(27 garter sections each consisting of 15 yd / 14m).
Contrasting Colour (CC): 840yd / 768m (26 lace panels each consisting of 30yd / 27.5m)
Uptown Sock: 400yd / 366m in 100g - (MC) 2 skeins; (CC) 3 skeins
Classy: 430yd / 393m in 100g - (MC) 1 skein; (CC) 2 skeins
Our combos are made up of four colourways. We suggest using two of the colours for the main colour, swapping them half way through the shawl. Meanwhile, the second main colour (the one you are not using) can be used as the third contrast colour. This will give you the right amount of yarn needed for the wrap, especially if you're using Uptown sock which has less yardage than Classy. However, if you prefer to have only one main colour you will need to purchase two main colour skeins of Uptown Sock. You can, of course, choose to knit the wrap out of one, two or three colours; the choice is yours!
As usual, we have listed the yarns individually, giving you the option of swapping out colours or, if you have another project in mind, you can buy whatever you like. The Lamina Wrap by Ambah O'Brien can be purchased through Ravelry.
The shop will be stocked with our newest arrivals on Friday 18th August at 9am AEST! Please pop by to check them all out.
Have a wonderful week!
