An Epic Project...Created from the Simplest of Building Blocks!
Even better... there's no sewing up at all!
The D’aeki Wrap (pronounced day-kai) is so eye-catching ...and yet deceptive in its simplicity. Created from layer upon layer of the smallest of building blocks -- each one so quick on its own but all of them together combining into an absolutely spectacular result -- it is the perfect project for SpaceCadet's Mini-Skeins or any collection of colours that are just waiting for the perfect pattern to show themselves off!
And because each garter stitch block knits up so quickly, allowing you to move on to the next block (and a new colour!) in no time, it's that perfect combination of both relaxing and yet endlessly interesting.
Featuring a herringbone pattern that effortlessly shifts the colour flow along the length of the piece and uses the Join As You Go method for knitting vertical sections together (without any sewing up at all!), the D'aeki Wrap creates an intriguing textural contrast, with one side beautifully smooth and the other showing off the lovely boxed-effect of the picked-up stitches and joins.

At SpaceCadet, we dye yarns for knitters who approach colour with confidence, aren’t afraid to break the “rules”, and join us to explore their creativity! Subscribers to the SpaceCadet Mini-Skein Club’s Ombre & Gradient Mix receive bundles of gradient mini-skeins that transition from one month’s colours into the next month’s colours (and into the next’s...) to create an amazing Never Ending Gradient. Designed to take full advantage of the club’s gorgeous colour flow, the D’aeki Wrap demonstrates that SpaceCadet’s different fingering yarns can be used together in a single project for maximum impact.
