Knit loosely, side to side in Garter stitch, this shoulder wrap is shaped with darts at the top edge and zig zags at the bottom edge, by increasing and decreasing at the beginning and/or end of each right side row. The repeat is quick to learn and remember. A removable marker placed on the right side of your piece makes it easier to determine which side you're on as you work. The attached tie is picked up from the top edge and worked on a smaller needle.
65% wool, 35% nettles
Our sixth addition to the Verde Collection, Woodland is a blend of wool and environmentally friendly nettles. Nettles are a weed that grows easily with little use of water, fertilizer or pesticides. Nettle fiber is taken from the stem of the plant and is similar to linen and hemp but it is a softer, silkier fiber that is naturally resistant to stains, bacteria and mildew. When mixed with wool, nettles add lightness, minimize shrinkage and add breathability to the fabric. The wool and nettles in Woodland take dye differently, creating a softly heathered yarn that is offered in 5 neutral and 7 vibrant colorways. Woodland has a propensity for crisp detail and will show off stitches from the simplest rib to more intricate cable or lace work.
