Calla Lily Wrap & Technicolor: Matinee

Technicolor: Matinee is a collection of accessories designed by six collaborating designers.  The designers participating in this collaboration, besides myself, are Lindsay LewchukChristine GuestSue McCainLaura Patterson and Jill Wolcott.

My design, the Calla Lily Wrap [please note, link currently leads to Ravelry], was so much fun to design.  Featuring a cable panel on the straight edge, the wrap is then made up of lots of delicious, squishy garter stitch – which is the easiest stitch to work, to boot!  I have made four of these wraps – in gold, pink, purple and orange.  “Technicolor” is very nearly literally true for me with this wrap – which I suppose means that it’s still figurative…

A huge thank you to LL Yarn Co.  for providing the yarn support for Calla Lily.  This wrap takes 2 skeins of their Worsted yarn – which is really lovely to work with and creates the aforementioned squishy garter stitch.

This colorway is Golden Hour.

There was snow on the day of the photo shoot, and we used the vintage pin that had belonged to my mom as a shawl pin.  I believe that it is from the 1940’s – but I don’t really know its story.

This is Calla in Dusted Pink:

I hope you will enjoy the pattern.  It’s designed so that there are two parts that require more focused attention (the cable panel and the increase on each row) and the rest ror smooth sailing in garter stitch!

  1. I love your contribution and how you mixed the beautiful details with a simple shape for a very cozy and wearable piece. That story about your mom’s pin is heartwarming, too!
