Sky Ladder Wrap
In Chinese mythology, the sky ladder connects heaven and earth, enabling gods and humans to travel between the two. The “ladder" may take the form of a high mountain, mythical tree, tower, rainbow, or cobweb. Appropriately, our February project is a squooshy piece of heaven to knit in a variety of shapes—scarf, (petite/tall wrap)baby blanket, throw— from mountain-raised merino for lightweight warmth on chilly spring days. Natural yarn colors will enhance the finer details in the cable and lace textures throughout, while richly-dyed colorways will bring their openwork and depth into focus. With all shapes knit in one piece, the repeating motifs are surprisingly easy to work on larger needles, making for a relaxing and satisfying project to snuggle up with on winter evenings. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
