Grandiose Wrap | The Knitting Vortex

Whether glamping around a forest retreat, exploring on a quaint weekend away, or unplugging for your stay-cation, the Grandiose Wrap provides big snuggly comfort. A triangle shawl beginning grows on each unique bias side to make an enfolding rectangular wrap, highlighting a main color paired with a mini-skein set in a mix of stripe and eyelet-based stitch patterns.

Techniques & Skills Used: garter tab CO, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, easy lace. Instructions for this pattern are fully written, with charts also provided for the eyelet-based lace.

Size: 104”/264 cm length at top, 80”/203cm length at bottom, and 18”/46cm depth.

Yarn: Miss Babs Yowza (100% superwash merino wool; 560 yards/ 512m/225g); 1 skein, shown in Fleur de Sel (A), and Miss Babs Yowza Mini (100% superwash merino wool; 200 yards/182m/80g); 3 skeins, shown in Stowaway (B), Tiger Eye (C), and Zinfandel (D), respectively. The sample used almost all of the yarn.

Other Materials: US 7 (4.5mm) 32” circular needle, or size to match gauge; Markers (4); Yarn needle.

Gauge: 18 st and 34 rows/4” in garter stitch after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.
