“'Brambleberry Wrap' by Sharyn Anhalt”
Working with Noro yarn is always a visual treat, with its slow striping, unique color changes. But what surprised me most about Kureopatora was the textural treat! The yarn is loosely spun with a few soft thick sections, and blocking allows the fabric to lighten and bloom. For this piece, the large lace holes are framed with classic bramble stitch, creating a wrap that’s light, airy, and perfect for spring.

Noro Kureopatora, 2 balls
2015 version – 295 yds per 100 grams, 100% wool
Shown in color 1009
Needle US size 9 (5.5mm)

Gauge is not critical, but your fabric should be a bit loose so that blocking opens up the holes stitch pattern. My gauge before blocking was 16-17 sts over 4 inches. Pattern uses almost all of 2 balls of Kureopatora; purchase an extra ball if you’re afraid of running out!

This project is suitable for knitters comfortable with multiple yarnovers and simple lace patterns.
