An Epic Project Created from the Simplest of Building Blocks… and for a limited time you can get the Striad Wrap pattern at 50% off!

The Striad Wrap was conceived one cosy day as I sat in my knitting chair drinking a steaming cup of tea and gazing absentmindedly at a new lampshade that cleverly incorporated strips of joined-up triangles to form a globe shape. As my eyes followed the curve of those triangles, I found myself itching to pick up my needles and use the architecture of knitting to mimic their shapes. And so the Striad Wrap was born, an intriguing series of short row triangles, knit individually in strips and joined together without any seaming up, that combine to beautifully show off the amazing colours of handdyed yarn.

Designed for SpaceCadet Mini-Skeins, this stunning wrap is my favourite kind of project: created from layer upon layer of the smallest of building blocks — each one so quick on its own but all of them together combining into an absolutely spectacular result. Perfect if you love playing with colour blocking but hate intarsia and seaming (there’s no intarsia and no sewing up at all in the whole project!).
