At Fiber & Vine we’re always looking for great, one-skein projects to keep us warm and in style. We love this soft and washable yarn from Manos del Uruguay because each skein is artfully dyed and looks amazing in the simplest of stitch patterns. Plus, with its bulky gauge, you’ll be done in no time, and who doesn’t love that?

This stitch pattern is created by double wrapping stitches on one row and then dropping one of the wraps on the following row. A photo tutorial is provided in the pattern for this.

Normally, we prefer to knit our projects using circular needles. For this project however, we found that the triple wraps get too tight on the circular cord, making the next row more difficult to knit. If you prefer circular needles, try using a spare #15 straight needle to work the triple wrap row only, then switch back to your circular. You’ll save time and frustration.
