Endless Tides Wrap
The Endless Tides Wrap, by Celia Roberts, envisions the many and varied tides experienced along the shores of Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula. The simple knit/purl pattern is worked continuously to create a shifting, moire design. Knit flat, the Endless Tides wrap can be worked to three sizes (12-16 inches wide by 60-90 inches long). You will need 800-1200 yds of sport weight yarn for this pattern. Shown here in Jorstad Creek Shuksan.
Tidal Shift, by Celia Roberts, evokes that moment when the high tide no longer dominates and must surrender to the pull of the moon. The sequence pattern is worked over and over with increases and decreases placed precisely to create a bias fabric that swirls and moves. The wrap is 22 inches wide by 60 inches long, but it can easily be resized. As written, you will need about 1200 yards of sport weight yarn. Shown here in Jorstad Creek Shuksan.
