A new design by  Ambah O'Brien, here is how she describes her Alinda Wrap:

Light as a cloud, Alinda is a large, lace weight wrap. Designed to be worn wrapped several times around, with tapered ends to tie or dangle in front.

Knit it up in your favourite bright or neutral colour, this easy to wear wrap is sure to be a year-round wardrobe favourite. Interesting construction gives this shawl a modern edge with a subtle Chevron eyelet patterning tapering to the final point.

For an elegant, versatile addition to your Spring/Autumn wardrobe, Alinda is a worthy contender.

This is a large project that requires some attention to the shaping, yet is simple enough for an advanced beginner to feel comfortable and provide plenty of mindless knitting while away on a break or enjoying your favourite show.

The Yarn and the Colorways

Requiring between 1400 and 1600 yards of a lace weight yarn, this design will give you a wrap with finished dimensions of about 94”/ 240cm at the top edge and 30”/ 76cm wide. 

The yarn we offer in our kits here is not the same as what Ambah used in her original piece.  You can see our yarn in the inset photos on the top picture and again right below that.  The other photos are there so you can see the design. 

What we have here is a combo of lace yarns from various suppliers so you can choose what sings to you for this lovely shawl. 

1.  from Manos del Uruguay:  Marina:  100% superwash merino with 874 yards (800m) per 100 gram skein.  Each kit will include two skeins.  The colorway is called Tiza and is a lovely variegated blend of soft pastels including pinks and peaches, greens and blues.  (Sorry, sold out)

2.  from Mountain Colors: Winter Lace Junior:  50% wool/ 50% silk with 600 yards sper skein.  Three skeins will be included in each kit.  The colorway is Harmony Shadow and is a soft blend ov varying greys, blues, and creams.  

The Pattern

Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern.

I know some knitters prefer to get it directly as a PDF file of the pattern from Ambah via her Ravelry web page. In this case, go with "No Pattern Needed" and get your pattern on Ravelry.  That way it will be saved in your Rav library and you'll automatically get any updates.

Of course, if you would prefer a printed copy, just make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that.

We also can email the pattern to you via email (just be aware that it is not automatic; I have to manually send it to you and do so right before shipping your kit).

A truly lovely knit. And both yarns are such as to make the knitting a real pleasure.
