“Wrapped in Door County by Diane Lynn Augustin”
Shown in Painted Desert #15-Candle Light

Each year, a few days before Memorial Day, my dear friends and I travel to Door County, WI, to relax, reconnect with each other, and explore the fantastic work of area artisans. It's one of our favorite times of year. We always bring our own projects, too. This time, Jeneen was knitting a wrap out of many colors yarn, and worked on it throughout the trip. It was a "stash buster" idea to knit up the remaining colors she had from previous projects. This classic pattern is perfect for vacation knitting and wearing. Toss it over your shoulders or wrap it as a scarf. Give it a try and you'll be Wrapped in Door County, too!

Using approximately 400 yards of yarn, this versatile pattern is appropriate for many different weights. Samples have been knit in a range of weights, from fingering-light worsted.

Pictured is a fingering weight version knit with one skein of KFI Painted Desert and size 4 circular needles.

This is a versatile pattern and many types of yarn may be substituted.

Optional: Approximately 40 grams (500 beads) of TOHO seed beads, size 6/0. Quality beads must be used for knitting. TOHO beads are uniform and smooth. Dental floss threader for bead stringing.
Beads are pre strung with a dental floss threader. 20 grams of TOHO seed beads in size 6/0.

This is a helpful YouTube video for stringing beads onto the yarn using a dental floss threader: [][2]

I prefer to use a fleece mat on a flat table surface. Fleece fabric may be purchased at any fabric store and cut a small square to use for beading.

The wrap will vary in length and depth, depending on yarn and needle choices. Optional bead placement instructions are written in the pattern.

Thank you for your purchase! We hope you enjoy this versatile design and knit several in many different weights of yarn!

Size 4-8 circular needles in a 24 or 32 inch length, depending on what weight yarn you choose.
