Customer Creation: Rachele’s Shoreline Wrap

If anything is going to make you miss summer, it’s this beautiful wrap knitted by our long-time customer Rachele.


Using Jane Thornley’s Shorewrap Wrap pattern as her guide, Rachele mixed shades of Malabrigo’s Silky Merino with Summer Twist and Heichi.  The Silky Merino (in shades of blues and greens) make up the ocean.  The Summer Twist (which is currently on sale in the shop!) represents the white caps and sea foam of the waves.  Shibui’s Heichi in a tweedy tan color is added to give the appearance of sand.


Rachele based her design off of Jane’s version above.  Though the pattern provided her the guidelines, she freeformed the color changes to make the version her own.  Absolutely stunning!


Farewell, summer!

Show Us Your Forest Weaves!

Our Forest Weave Knit-a-Long has come to an end!
