ABOUT
The delicate cabling on the Bridgeland Wrap creates an elegant, textured fabric and can even be knit without a cable needle!

MATERIALS
Yarn: Worsted—Lion Brand Color Theory in Ivory

  • 100% Acrylic
  • 246 yds (225 m) per 3.5 oz (100 g) skein
  • Find this yarn on lionbrand.com or visit yarnsub.com for a list of substitutes

Yardage: 5 skeins or 1107 yds (1013 m)

If substituting Color Theory, choose any similar, category #4 worsted weight yarn that matches gauge. Most fiber types should work out fine. Always swatch before beginning to ensure you are happy with the resulting fabric.

Needles: Size U.S. 9 (5.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge

Notions: Tapestry needle, 2 fixed stitch markers, a crochet hook that will fit through your stitches for adding fringe, an object measuring approximately 6” (15 cm) in length to wrap yarn around to create fringe (such as your phone, a book, a piece of cardboard, etc.) and a cable needle (optional).

MEASUREMENTS
All measurements given are after a light steam blocking.

Finished wrap measures approximately 14” (36 cm) in width and 73” (185 cm) in length, not including fringe, lying flat.

Note that this cable pattern has a lot of stretch and could be blocked out more aggressively to get a larger width if desired.

GAUGE
7 cable repeats = approximately 7.5” (19 cm) wide, 6.5” (16.5 cm) tall, lightly blocked.
Note: This fabric is so stretchy so don’t worry too much about matching gauge exactly.

ABBREVIATIONS USED
C3F: Cable 3 forward - Slip 1 st to cable needle and hold in front of work, k2 from left needle, k1 off cable needle.
To do so without a cable needle: Slip the next st off your needle and hold it in front of your work, k2 from your left needle, re-insert your left needle into the dropped st and knit this st off.

C3B: Cable 3 back - Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in back of work, k1 from left needle, k2 off cable needle.
To do so without a cable needle: Without slipping any sts off your left needle, insert your right needle into the 3rd st on your left needle (as if to knit) and knit this stitch (this will look like your working yarn is crossing over the first 2 sts), then knit the 1st st on your left needle, then the 2nd, and slip all three sts off your left needle.
k: knit
p: purl
pm: place marker
rep: repeat
RS: right side (the knit side)
sl1kw: slip 1 stitch knitwise
sl1pw: slip 1 stitch purlwise
sm: slip marker
st(s): stitch(es)
WS: wrong side (the purl side)

PATTERN NOTES
Skill Level:** Advanced Beginner

To adjust the width: For wider (or narrower) wrap, add more (work fewer) cable repeats by casting on additional (fewer) stitches in multiples of 8, then continue to follow the pattern as written. Note that this will alter the required yardage.
