La Mondiola Wrap: Pattern Notes

 La Mondiola is a simply-shaped wrap that is worked seamlessly from end to end, using three colors of incredibly soft Malabrigo Arroyo - a 100% Superwash Merino Wool in a sport weight. 


Please note that on the original pattern release, S2KP was explained incorrectly in the the abbreviations section. The correct technique is: Slip 2 stitches as if to knit 2 together, remove the marker, k1, pass 2 slip stitches over k1, replace the stitch marker.


Some knitters are finding that they are running out of or coming close to running out of Color B and/or Color C. A few thoughts on yarn management!

Create an unblocked gauge swatch! (Leaving it unblocked will allow you to measure and then unravel the swatch to use the yarn in your project!) Gauge is usually less critical for shawls and wraps as they are not fitted garments. If your gauge does not match that used in the pattern, however, the amount of yarn used will not match. For example: 

If you are a looser knitter, your stitches will be slightly larger and more yarn will be used. Likewise, if you are a tight knitter, stitches are slightly smaller and less yarn will be used.

To help ensure you do not run out of Colors B or C, here are a few suggestions.

- The pattern calls for 2yo - or double yarn overs - to create the lace increases. Since these are worked together into one stitch on the wrong side, substituting a single yarn over (yo) for each 2yo will reduce the yarn used without modifying the pattern.
- Eliminate a repeat or pair of rows. Reducing the number of rows knit in a color will obviously cut down on the amount of that yarn needed. Less noticeable locations for decreasing Color B would be in Sections 3, 4, 12 and 13. For Color C consider Sections 5, 7, 9 and 11.
