Afternoon in Lisbon by Lisa Hannes - from Malabrigo
This large & cozy rectangular wrap features an intriguing interplay of two colors worked in garter stripes and an eye-catching beautiful mosaic motif.
Mosaic knitting is an easy colorwork technique that uses slipped stitches and only one color at a time, which makes for fun knitting and striking results. Different alternating sections with three mosaic parts make this pattern fun and engaging knit, resulting in a cozy item to highlight your daily wardrobe.
The pattern comes with both written and charted instructions so you can choose whichever you prefer.
Large, size of original sample: length along top edge: 208 cm / 82“ (adjustable), width: 55 cm / 21.75“
Variations included in the pattern:
Medium: width approx. 40 cm, length adjustable
Small: width approx. 26 cm, length adjustable
Designed for fingering weight yarn in two contrasting colours. Allow approx. 730 m / 798 yds per colour to get the size large. The pattern is easily adjustable for other yarn weights and/or yardages (please see requirements for the smaller variations below).
4 hanks (1536 m / 1680 yds) Malabrigo Mechita - 2 hanks (768 m / 840 yards) in each of two colorways. Shown in Pearl and Teal Feather.
Yardage requirements for the smaller variations, if knit to approx. the same length:
Medium: approx. 1.5 skeins of each colour (approx. 576 m / 630 yds each)
Small: approx. 1 skein of each colour (approx. 384 m / 420 yds each)
3.5 mm / US 4, or size needed to obtain gauge
Not critical for this project but differences will affect yardage requirements and the finished size.
