Powder Wrap Kit
When we got a sneak peek at Casapinka's Powder Wrap last year, we immediately wanted to cast on! The shawl is an asymmetric triangle that is a large, mesmerizing wrap to knit. The three sections repeat throughout until the last part where you do some increases and work cables. There are video links in the pattern for doing the cables without a cable needle and also a beginner’s alternative in case you don’t wish to cable at all.
Your kit includes 9 skeins of Loops Luxe Chunky, our exclusive-to-Knit Stars luxury yarn base of Royal Alpaca (the best of the best) and Mulberry Silk with a lovely twist, delicious silky sheen and next-to-your-neck softness.
Although Loops Luxe Chunky is considered a chunky yarn, we achieved the recommended gauge of 4 stitches per inch with a size 8 (5mm) needle. Be sure to do a swatch to ensure you achieve your desired fabric drape and stitch gauge.
The Powder Wrap pattern by Casapinka is available on Ravelry.
