Project Inspiration: Lightning Wrap

June 10, 2014

What’s a knitter to do when the temperature starts rising? Rather than packing away the needles for the season, why not cast on for a lightweight, fun-to-knit pattern which can accompany you on summer outings!

The Lightning Wrap by Kyoko Nakayoshi uses simple short rows to create a striking wrap you’ll use year-round! It’s a great project for summer vacations, a day at the beach, or your local knit night. All you have to do is pick your favorite color combination in Spud & Chloë Fine!

Here, it’s shown in Orangutan as the main color and Goldfish as the contrast color:

If you’d prefer to knit your wrap in a different color scheme than pictured, we have endless possibilities from our palette of 25 color options! You could dive in with a watery theme, using Dolphin as the main color (left) and Snorkel as the contrast color (right) – or even vice versa!

 For an earthier palette, Green Bean (left) and Glow Worm (right) would also be a lovely choice!

If you’re feeling bold, here are some color combos which really pack a punch. First, Hippo (left) and Calypso (right) combine a neutral grey with a bright pop of color:

Or you could be inspired by the summery hues of watermelon, pairing Sassafras (left) with Lizard (right):

Finally, you can’t go wrong with black & white! Create a graphic piece you can wear just about anywhere with Black Pepper (left) and Popcorn (right):

We can’t wait to see your creative color choices over on Ravelry!
