Notes From the Designer:

Gdańsk is a port town in Poland. Observing the Baltic Sea from the beaches of Gdańsk can nearly overwhelm the mind. I grew up in the United States in the mountains of the Desert Southwest, and although I traveled extensively from a young age, I was nearly 40 years old the first time I saw the ocean. My mind could not comprehend that what I was seeing was real. The colors, the vastness, the inability to discern where the water ends and the sky begins all make it quite difficult to convince yourself that what you are seeing is actual reality.

I designed this pattern to capture the “literally unbelievable” beauty of that incredible seascape. Gdańsk begins with a dappled sand texture that closely matches the final, dimpled sky texture. The rest of the design features a lovely wave pattern that showcases the colors of the ocean. Each color fades into the next and eventually into the colors of the sky itself. 

  • Click the Videos tab to watch a tutorial, and learn how to crochet a miniature version of this pattern. 
  • Yarn is held double throughout. Color shifts are worked by dropping and adding one strand of each color at a time. 
  • For all colors in the small blanket, winding each skein from both ends into two roughly equal size balls that remain connected in the middle will allow for maximum yardage. 
  • Yardage is very close in most sections and may use the entire skein of yarn with just enough left to comfortably weave in the ends. 
  • Gauge is crucial, and you will achieve the best results by ensuring both your stitch size and your row height is accurate. 
  • When working the Waves section, the “3 triple crochet” sections need to line up directly above the “three single crochet” sections that are two rows below (and vice versa). This can be a little hard to see, since you’ll be working into sc stitches, which face the other direction. It can be helpful to use stitch markers to ensure those stitches are lining up correctly. 
  • The blanket width can be adjusted by adding or subtracting multiples of 14 stitches, but this may require additional yardage.

Gdansk wrap

I really love this wrap pattern. The soft pastel colors and the variety of stitches. Going to make it for one of my sisters, because she moved to a colder climate & still feels cold in her house.

I love you patterns, but I have just started using fingering yarns. I've only completed one item, something I have had the pattern for for several years. I am looking forward to knitting more this winter, but I can only knit after everyone is in bed. I'm working on lining up my schedule, patterns and yarns to crochet during the day now that I've retired.

Adore this pattern!

I am about 2/3 through this blanket. I love how the yarn is so easy to work with. The colors are awesome! The directions are easy to follow, but follow closely in order to get the color gradient right.

Very nicely explained, easy to follow patterns which are available at times free which is awesome. Some real super yarns to die for. Am hoping someday I can make a pattern using their own yarns. Thank you

What a beautiful pattern representing this historic city. It has been my privilege to have visited once, unfortunately, for only a short time. I look forward to making this shawl which I think will be a challenge for me. Thank you for continuing to provide inspiration through your yarns and patterns.
