Mosaic Tiles Wrap in the Knitter Magazine, Issue 57

My Mosaic Tiles Wrap is the Subscriber Exclusive pattern in the next Knitter Magazine! My subscriber copy of Issue 57 arrived this morning and I am thrilled to see the wrap looking so stunning on page 28. I really enjoyed designing and knitting this wrap and the gorgeous Habu textiles bamboo lace yarn was a pleasure to work with. The finished wrap is so light and soft and has a lovely sheen.

Inspired by mosaic tiles at the V&A museum, the wrap is made of individual squares in two colours, Dark Grape and Bronze. Each square is picked up from a neighbouring square and shaped using mitred corner decreasing. The wrap is finished off with a garter stitch border and picot cast off.

The Knitter have published the pattern as a 'Knitalong'. Part 1, in this issue, has the instructions for the first row of squares and Part 2 follows next month.
