Wilbraham

$5.00

FINISHED SIZE:

20" wide x 88" long

MATERIALS: 

Expression Fiber Arts Resilient Sock Yarn

Shown in colors: 

Copper Patina Hues 3-skein kit (12 oz/339 g, 1200 yds/1098 m total) 4 oz/113 g, 400 yd/366 m each skein

Total yards used for this sample: approximately 1,150 yds (375 yds Color A, 375 yds Color B, 400 Color C).

The yardage totals are very tight, if your gauge is not exact, consider going down a needle size to ensure you have enough yarn to complete project.

If those colors aren't available, any from this category will work.

NEEDLES: 

US size 6 (4.00 mm) needles or size needed to obtain gauge

Any size that is appropriate for the yarn selected. Refer to the tag/label for the recommended sizes. 

SKILL LEVEL:

Intermediate - This pattern is for those who feel comfortable with knitting and have made a few projects, using various skills and techniques. Skills/ concepts include: mosaic knitting (slipped stitch colorwork), combining knit and purl stitches, and changing colors at the end of a row.

Notes From the Designer:

The moment I saw the gorgeous colors in the Copper Patina kit, I was reminded of beautiful domes atop magnificent buildings. I wanted to design something with architectural elements, such as coffered ceilings and mosaic friezes. This wrap maintains clean lines with a simple rectangular shape but has colorful flourishes and textures that are deceptively simple to achieve.

Lady Elizabeth Wilbraham (1632-1705) has been called the first female architect of the United Kingdom. Women weren't permitted to be architects at the time, but it is likely she designed about 400 grand houses that were attributed to men. Historians now believe that she was a tutor to Sir Christopher Wren, and she helped him design 18 of the 52 churches that he worked on following the 1666 Great Fire of London.
