Knitting pattern for The Cairsmore Wrap featured in issue 130 of The Knitter magazine.
THIS WARM and cosy winter wrap by Sandra Nesbitt features a stylised tartan pattern. This is achieved by working a slip stitch pattern in two different yarns - a solid brown shade, and a self-striping colourway. The yarns used are both aran-weights from West Yorkshire Spinners: the Fleece undyed Bluefaced Leicester, and the Aire Valley Fusions wool blend, which has subtle, harmonious colour changes. Sandra’s design is finished with simple moss stitch edgings which are knitted on to the main piece.
