Wrapped in the colours of the earth, Earth Maiden walks the woods. Her wrap is a long, rectangular stole, laced along one side. Knit from the long edge, the pattern grows organically, highlighting the random coloration of the handpainted yarn. Earth Maiden can wear her creation in a myriad of ways: as a shawl, as a poncho or as a wrap, with or without an I-cord closure at the front, at the back, or to the side.

The pattern contains two versions of this wrap: a full-length version (as pictured) and a shorter version and is shown in Fleece Artist Woolie Silk yarn. A complete knit kit is also available.
  • Size: One size fits most. Its generous dimensions are particularly flattering for those with earthy, voluptuous proportions. Full-length wrap: 208 cm./82 in. long and 39 cm./15.5 in. wide; Shorter version of the wrap: 155 cm./61 in. long and 39 cm./15.5 in. wide
  • Level : Intermediate
  • Suggested Yarn : 700 m./765 yds. (600 m./655 yds. for the shorter version) of double knitting or light worsted weight yarn
  • Needles: 4.5 mm. (US 7) circular needle (80 cm./32 in. recommended)
  • Gauge: 16 sts = 10 cm./4 in.
  • We have a number of lovely DK and light worsted weight yarns that would be gorgeous with this pattern. Some suggestions might be Fleece Artist Woolie Silk, Lanas Puras Melosa, Black Pearl DK 100% cashmere, Sheep Shop Three, Sheep Shop One, and Artesano Inca Mist, Inca Cloud or Hummingbird yarns
