Issue 544 • Think Spring Wrap

Calista Think Spring

This simple wrap, knit in mercerized cotton chainette Calista, makes me long for the sunny skies and summer breezes. Worked in a simple mesh stitch with a two-row repeat, it blocks to become a drapey, open and airy fabric. It is important to block your work in progress before measuring – the unblocked fabric has a much different row gauge. In order to measure accurately, only measure the blocked fabric.

The rectangle can be worn as a stole or as a poncho (shown) with one end sewn to the opposite side of the rectangle. The smallest size is shown and uses 3 balls of Calista. (There are two additional larger sizes that require 4 or 5 balls.)
