… wrapped …

I noticed I’ve never really showed my ‘wrapped collection’ here before.

Wrapped pullover

This is something different, isn’t it ? I’m quite proud of it.

The diagonal cabled wrap hides a pocket and turns around the neck to form a cosy collar. It’s unusual construction makes it very addictive to knit.

It is worked from the bottom up. The collar is asymmetrical in the back going from halfway the right sleeve to the top of the left sleeve. I knitted the sleeves from the top down.

Wrapped hat

I made matching hat to go with my wrapped pullover πŸ™‚

A quick knit in chunky yarn and large needles.

This is a new way of constructing a hat in one piece. It is reversible and can be worn in many ways, backwards (what is back or front, anyway?), inside-out, …

The wrapped hat is worked from the top and completely seamless, apart from a few live stitches to be sewn, using the kitchener stitch. The crown is formed by 6 sections. 2 sections are ribbed and form the start of the ribbed cables at the sides.

And I made … a wrapped pullover for him πŸ™‚

This looks wuite classical with the drop-shoulders, but the assymetrically placed cable at the front and the back makes it interesting and stylish. It is worked top-down starting with a provisional cast-on at the shoulder. I added also a breast pocket.

Back and front are worked separately to the armholes and joined in the round. The stitches of the sleeves are picked up and the sleeves, worked top-down, it was easy toΒ  adapt to any length.

My brother took my first wrapped pullover I made in Cascade Yarns Eco+, so I made a 2nd one in Lett Lopi. It has less stitch definition but I really love that dark bottlegreen color…
