Ice Fire Wrap Knit Along

When we saw the Ice Fire Wrap by Donielle Showvay from Good Vibes & Groovy Lines, so many Knit Picks staff members wanted to knit it that we knew we had to plan a KAL around it! We’d like to invite you to join us in knitting this gorgeous, striped wrap starting June 1st and finishing July 31st.

You’ll have two weeks to pick out your yarn and order it. The pattern uses 2 colorways of Chroma Worsted, with 4 balls of each colorway for a total of 8, and it’s knit on US 9 (5.5mm) needles. The wrap shown in the pattern collection features Chroma Worsted colorways Seahorse and Sedona, with the blues representing ice and the reds fire, but any combination of Chroma colors would be beautiful! This pattern also lends itself to other yarn choices, and we’ll be sharing a few of our yarn substitutions next week. 

Chroma wool yarn balls in colorways Seahorse (shades of blue and yellow) and Sedona (shades of red, orange, and purple) are laid on the wrap.

This wrap is perfect for an adventurous beginner, and its simple shape is very forgiving. The pattern begins with 1×1 ribbing in stranded colorwork, but this decorative element can easily be replaced with solid color 1×1 rib. After that, only one color at a time is used throughout the main stitch pattern. The two colors are alternated every right side row in garter stitch, and the flame motif is created using easy W&T short rows. The motifs are balanced, so after you block the project, it will be a smooth rectangle.

Follow along with us on Instagram with the hashtag #IceFireKAL, and we’ll be sharing progress updates both there and on Facebook. We’ll also be sharing tips and updates here on the Knit Picks blog!
