Wrap yourself in your love of books.
Bibliophile is a potato chippy* wrap especially for makers who love books. It is inspired by the juxtaposition of colors and textures seen in a shelf full of books, and the twists and turns taken by the stories inside them. Each section of the shawl features a slightly different texture pattern and shaping, creating variations on a theme. When the knitting is finished, you can wrap yourself up in your love of books.
About the wrap
Designed by Karalee Harding for Little Skein, this asymmetrical, irregularly-shaped shawl begins as a basic top-down triangle, but (like any good story) it takes some unexpected turns along the way. Starting at the top of the center spine, it is worked outward in 5 sections, each featuring a different stitch pattern; the shawl shaping also changes from one section to the next, making it very hard not to knit just one more row.
Two sizes, infinite color options
The pattern includes two sizes. The small uses 5 coordinating mini-skeins of at least 25g each, and the large uses 10 mini-skeins for a total of approx. 870 yards.
We've put together kits in the pictured colors, which were drawn from the book inspired colorways created for our Little Stitches subscription box.
The small set is called Bookworm and features colors inspired by Beatrix Potter, Misty of Chincoteague, A Little Princess and more.
The large set is called Reading Fort and contains these inspirations plus more from the Wizard of Oz, A Christmas Carol, To Kill a Mockingbird, and more. (The name of each mini-skein plus its inspiration is in the pattern).
