Squamish is part of a series that explores curves worked on the bias. It is a luxuriously large wrap, waves stacked 3 high. This pattern is available for standalone purchase, or it’s included at no added cost with purchase of a pattern kit from Hopemade Yarn, which was used to make the pictured garment. Scroll to the bottom of this page for instructions on how to download the pattern if you have purchased a kit.

The pictured garment was made with Hope’s Favorite, an 80/10/10 blend of extrafine merino, cashmere, and recycled nylon, in the color Windswept. Hope herself made and is modeling the garment, and the photo was taken by her creative partner Keisha Bond of Simply Vintage Designs.

Squamish’s written pattern uses a format geared towards visual learners. Standard format knitting instructions are also available if you prefer. Either way, once you get the hang of the rhythm it is a relaxing and mesmerizing knitting experience.

Knitters generally use stitch markers to help them navigate this pattern, but every knitter seems to have a different opinion about where they should go. So although I do suggest stitch markers, I’ll leave it up to you to figure out what placement you like best.

Printing the pattern - Some of the pages in this pattern are in landscape orientation. Some printers default to printing everything in portrait. Please check your printer settings and verify that it prints pages in both portrait and landscape.

You should see two files for each design: 1) main pattern, 2) printer-friendly standard format instructions. If not, please get in touch.

Download for free with kit purchase. If you have bought a kit from Hope and need to download your file, please visit this page and enter the code that Hope gave you along with your kit. https://www.ravelry.com/redeem/jeny-staiman-designs
