Pashley Tulip Wrap

Ta da! I have a pattern in the new, Best of British, issue of Knit Now (issue 44) and it’s the Pashley Wrap.

Despite having hayfever I still love flowers. The solution? A knitted wrap strewn with blossom! This wrap is named for the Pashley Manor tulip festival held in East Sussex to commemorate the arrival of the first tulips into Europe in the 16th Century.

You can buy a physical magazine in newsagents and some supermarkets in the UK/Eire today (and possibly elsewhere at a later date), order one online or download a digital version. [More details here]

I had fun designing this; making all the elements work together and flow into one another. I think it may be the most delicate and “ladylike” thing I’ve ever designed!

The yarn used for this project is Ripple Crafts Bluefaced Leicester 4-ply in A Dangerous Shade. It was a lovely yarn to work with; very smooth and with a great drape. And I used pretty much every last centimetre of it!

The pattern has charts and written directions, so there’s no excuse!
