The Awa-Awa Wrap is from Making No. 3 / Dots by Madder. This intermediate pattern was inspired by soap bubbles and combines techniques of working 2 colors of yarn to create a marled fabric while simultaneously working three various sizes of circles in fair-isle in either of 2 colors. This method allows you to create intricate patterning with minimal finishing. Trapping floats behind each circle and knitting in garter stitch creates a reversible wrap as well. This striking wrap is sure to impress any who see it.
Kit includes Making No. 3: Dots (pattern inside) and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
