I was fortunate to knit another Alana-Dakos-pattern for her trunk show.  This time it was the warm, cushy Cosette Wrap.

This wrap has a subtle curved shape worked with the help of short rows.  It is finished off with a lacy picot edging knit in a contrasting colored yarn.  The end result is a cozy wrap  – perfect to keep the chill off your shoulders.

The yarn I used for the body was Dream in Color Classy.  This yarn seems like sturdy, no- nonsense merino when you first knit it.  But once blocked, it transforms into a soft fabric with plenty of fluidity and drape.  The edging was knit with Madelinetosh Eyre, the same yarn I used for my Textured Yoke Cardigan.  One word about this yarn: Swoon!


Cosette Wrap

Pattern: Cosette by Alana Dakos
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy in “Strange Harvest” and Madelinetosh Eyre in “Fig”

Prithvi arrives this evening after his busy summer vacation, along with Vineet’s mom who is coming to stay with us for a month.  I’m so excited!!!

Have a great day, my peeps!
