The Guernsey Wrap incorporates stitch patterns common to traditional guernsey fisherman sweaters. These are combinations of knit and purl only and are shown on large, easy-to-read charts, so this shawl is accessible
even to an adventurous beginner. Finished measurements are 16.5" x 77.5". The wrap can be hand washed and dried flat. Brooklyn Tweed has assigned this Jared Flood design a skill level rating of 2 out of 5.
The Guernsey Wrap uses Arbor, made by Brooklyn Tweed. This is a DK weight yarn that is made using three worsted-spun plies firmly twisted together, creating a smooth yarn with excellent stitch definition.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 32" circular needle or single point needles in US size 6 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- stitch markers
- T-pins or wires for blocking
- tapestry needle
