Lady Bird Wrap
This product is sold out
The Lady Bird Wrap by Joji Locatelli is a gorgeous wrap/shawl/scarf that is SO VERSATILE! Below is the description of the project from the designer:
This geometric wrap is worked using four colors of fingering-weight yarn and has a mesmerizing appearance, where all colors integrate with each other.
In every collection, I try to learn and design something completely new, so I experimented with slipped stitches and geometric shapes to create this pattern. The process was a real challenge and my first attempts did not work as I hoped. I got frustrated and, for a moment, thought I would have to give up my idea and design something else. But, after a long night working things out, it all became clear and the project finally flowed.
The Lady Bird wrap is a design I am so proud of. Now that it’s written and the mysteries of this design are solved, it is a stunning (and relatively easy) project. I promise the finished object will be a showstopper.
Suburban Stitcher Sock:
75% superwash merino/25% nylon
460 yds/100 grams
Yardage requirements for the project, as called for by the designer are:
Sock by Suburban Stitcher (75% Merino /25% Nylon; 460 yds 437 m).
2 skeins in color 1, 1 skein each in colors 2, 3, 4. Approx. 1317 yards 1251 m of fingering-weight yarn: 568 yards 539 m in color 1; 338 yards 321 m in color 2; 205 yards 195 m in color 3 and 205 yards 195 m in color 4.
These yardage requirements account for a 10% buffering taking my sample as reference. If you knit exceptionally loose, then you may want to secure a little bit more yardage.
Sample shown in colorways Lady Bird (color 1, Lilac speckle), Cosmopolitan (color 2, purple), Sugar Land (color 3, light gray speckle) and Coal (color 4, dark gray).
I am selling these as kits, and because the requirements for skeins 3 and 4 are much smaller, I am kitting them up as 1/2 skeins. Each kit will include 2 full skeins for color 1, 1 full skein for color 2, and 2 50 gram skein for colors 3 & 4.
Hand dyed yarn can very from skein to skein, even within the same dyelot. Please take care to purchase enough yarn to complete your project.
This yarn does contain superwash merino, however, I do always recommend that you hand wash your knitwear. Please use cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. I use colorfast acid dyes for dying my yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. However even with all of this, there is a chance that some dye may bleed slightly in the first wash of your finished item. This is particularly true for highly saturated colors and speckled skeins. Because of this, I do recommend that you wash your items separately, especially for the first couple of washes.
The pictures in this listing are true to color for my eyes on my computer. Please know that there might be slight variations in color from screen to screen. I do not use stock photos, as each dye lot might vary widely.
