Loops Trooper Rachel savored every Cheesecake stitch while she knit Åsa Tricosa's Troppo Mayhem wrap. It's got all the toppings - graphic assymetric stripes on the bias, easy and creative short rows, and a stunning cable motif that pops on a garter stitch background.

And Åsa's pattern is chock full of details, sketches, photo tutorials, and links to video tutorials...if you feel intimidated, don't fret- this pattern will take you through all of the techniques!

Knit your Troppo Mayhem with 3 skeins of "Silver Lining" and 2 skeins of "Black Cherry" on US 7 (4.5mm) needles. Pattern recommends straight or 24-32" circular needles.
