I created the Ripple patterns to represent the shifting marks of the sea and the channels of fresh water carved out over the sand. I worked the sea and sand colours to enhance the idea of movement both in the geometric ripples and in the opposing pattern versus background colours of the vertical panels. Once the first round is set it is very easy to memorize and work, making this an ideal project for newcomers attempting the stranded technique. It has one long steek worked straight from cast-on to cast-off end.
So whether you are a first-timer or an experienced stranded knitter, this is a project that sums up everything that is enjoyable and easy about the stranded, steek technique, and is guaranteed to produce a result you will be proud of. The wrap is not only highly wearable, but can also be displayed as a beautiful home furnishing.
