Paintbox Wrap kit

  • There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.
    –Jane Austen

    Sometimes, all you need to feel delightfully happy are the comforts of being at home and a soothing knitting project.

    Paintbox Wrap is all of these things: simple, easy knitting, delightful color changes, and the perfect shape to wrap around yourself for warmth and color.

    Inspired by Jane Austen and her ability to take ordinary life and make it extraordinary, the wrap is a simple shape: a rectangle knit on the bias to form a parallelogram.

    The stitches are simple, yet satisfying. Ordinary increases, decreases and yarn-overs create a gently waving lace pattern inspired by some of Jane's own needlework, separated by bands of garter stitch.

    With a colorful set of mini-skeins and your favorite neutral, Paintbox becomes a satisfyingly complex project, full of color and style—like Jane’s deceptively domestic novels, where there is so much more than meets the eye.

Lovely kit! The yarn is so beautifully dyed and soft. I really appreciated the inclusion of a free extra pattern. I only wish I knew which color name went with which mini skein. All around great kit!
