Runestones is a textured wrap inspired by the shapes of Runestones. Textures of Twisted Rib and cables are worked to create geometric patterns, separated by borders of Stockinette Ridges. This gorgeous wrap is designed by Rachel Illsley from Unwind Knitwear.
YARN The Runestones wrap has been created using Kokon Yarn’s Merino / Linen base with Rachel (as seen in the photos) wearing the wrap in the colour Moon as the Main Colour, Rose Gold as Contrast Colour 1 and Ice as Contrast Colour 2. The Kokon Merino Linen base is a light fingering weight/ 4ply, with a 90% Merino and 10% Linen blend (360m / 393yds per 100g).
Rachel's 3 coloured version requires 2 x skeins of Kokon Yarn Merino Linen (Rachel used the colour Moon) and 1 x skein each of the 2 contrasting colours (Rachel used the colours Rose Gold and Ice). You could choose any colour combination from the fantastic range of Kokon Merino Linen yarn listed below for your version of the Runestone Wrap.
Rachel has also included a one colour version of the wrap in her pattern which requires 3 x skeins of Kokon Merino Linen and a two colour version which requires 2 x skeins of Kokon Merino Linen for the Main Colour and 1 x skein of Kokon Merino Linen for the contrasting colour.
