This is a pdf download for the Almost Simple Wrap knitting Pattern. This is a pattern with written and graphed instructions and double knit sections. Here are the specifications from the pattern.
Materials: • Size 9, 5.5 mm Knitting Needles • 6 Skeins Hayfield Aran with Wool, Shade 929 Glen Coe, (Color A) • 2 Skeins Hayfield Aran with Wool, Shade 143 Brandy Snap, (Color B) • Darning Needle
Gauge: • 4 Stitches x 7 Rows = 1” x 1” in Garter Stitch
Finished Size: • 2’ Wide x 5’ 2” Long
Notes: • The initial cast on is done with a single skein of Color A yarn. • Odd rows are wrong side rows, even rows are right side rows. • In the rows of the wrap that contain double knit sections, the first and last eight stitches are simply knit with one strand of Color A and are not done in double knit. • Blue lines in charts denote the section that is done in double knit. • Red lines in charts denote a repeat section. Each repeat section should be done a total of 5 times to complete each row with the correct stitch count. • Remember, when double knitting, keep the yarn in between the stitches (to the back of a knit stitch and to the front of a purl stitch) and don’t pull both threads through a stitch unless you are on the starting row of a double knit section. • Charts show the right side image of each double knit section. Remember, for the right side the first part of the stitch is a knit in the color shown on the chart and the second part of the stich is purled in the opposite color. For the wrong side, the first part of the stitch is knit in the opposite color shown, and the second part of the stitch is purled in the shown color. • The first row of each double knit section is done on the wrong side of the scarf (Rows 21, 157, and 395). This means that the first and last eight stitches of the row will be knit with a single strand of Color A as per normal. For the center eighty stitches, pick up Color B as you knit with Color A. Keep Color B to the right of Color A as you work across the center eighty stitches. Remember to leave a tail for Color B to be woven in later. • When you come to the end o f a right side section of double knit, move Color B to the front of the work under Color A and keep there while you knit the final eight stitches in Color A alone. • When you come to the end of a wrong side section of double knit, move Color B to the back to the work under Color A and keep there while you knit the final eight stitches in Color A alone. • Charts 1 and 3 are exactly the same. Only the row numbers have been changed. So you can disregard page 6 (Chart 3) if you like.
