This knitting pattern designed by Laura Chau is a fun opportunity to pair a beautiful handpainted yarn with a coordinating solid color. The simple garter stitch lace pattern opens up the fabric and biases naturally for an interesting parallelogram shape. It’s worked lengthwise on a circular needle to accommodate the large number of stitches. The scarf version uses just one skein of each color; the generously-sized wrap uses two skeins of each color.
