Squibb House Wrap - A Mosaic Knitting design

Squibb House Wrap

This beautiful piece, designed by our own Kris Gregson, is knit with 2 skeins each of two colors of Feliz from Manos del Uruguay.

In addition to the beautiful color work, the middle of the back features short rows to help the wrap sit on your shoulders more easily.

It's a great way to start with color work as this is a mosaic knitting design, which means you're only working on one color per row! If you're unfamiliar with mosaic knitting, drop us a line, we'd be happy to introduce you to this fun technique!

We've put together some suggested color combinations or you can choose your own.

As you probably know, Manos is a Certified Fair Trade yarn from a Women's Cooperative in Uruguay. The women that produce the goods are who own the company! They've been changing lives for women since 1968.
