Eunny shows off the various versions of Mag Kandis’s popular Modern Quilt Wrap from Folk Style (Interweave, 2007). See what this scarf would look like in muted colors, pastels, and even felted into a bag.
Yes, this could be one as crochet.
Fora more affordable yarn...how about something eith self striping in a fingering weight or a solid fingering weight with many colors? Also, how about something that is normally considered baby yarn? My last suggestion is Mission Wools 1824 yarn, it comes in a gorgeous array of colors, wool, washable wool, and cotton...it is one of my favorite yarns....I hope I have the name of the yarn correct....duh....
Another pattern that is very nice is the one on the cover of a Rowan Magazine by Kaffe Fassett where he takes two strands of Kid Silk Hase and combines and carries them along for the most luschious suttle change of colors. It is such a simple pattern with such a gorgeous outcome.
Yes, this could be done as crochet.
Could this be done in crochet as a pattern?
Can anyone suggest a suitable yard for this scarf other than the $14 per skein yarn suggested? Rosemary in CT,USA
I loved this pattern. I used Kidsilk Haze but changed the colours and selected a rage of blues, greens and mauves - mostly from stash with a few odd balls from Ebay. Once I'd got the hang of the pattern I didn't follow the chart for colour changes but just selected colours and width of stripe for each square as I went along. The finished wrap is lovely and gets lots of comments. I'm planning to make one for a friend in shades of pink, red and brown to suit her colouring. Blocking this wrap made a big difference - before blocking the squares were not square. I can also imagine doing an evening/party version, maybe in shades of white, black and grey with some Kidsilk Night (which is a bit sparkly) and some random beads...... the potential is endless. Alex
I love such patterns and I realize the amount of work needed in interlacing different-color yarns. A good job!
To Rosemary, who finds the cost of the yarn prohibitive...you might take a trip to eBay, searching on the pattern name, where you will find a seller offering yarn for just this project at half the price for the yarn. Even so, it is still steep for me, but looks like a good offering for someone else. Sue
I agree with the writer suggesting that we do not see enough of the engineering that would go into assembling this wonderful scarf. It is so vibrant colorwise but so expensive moneywise. In my area (Connecticut,USA) this scarf would cost $12.50 per skein and we would need, what 9 skeins. Also I do not have a "fine" wool shop where I live and the run of the mill shops do not come near to the quality this article requires. Rosemary
I'm interested in this wrap, but the photo does not let me see the pattern and the description does not say if it'smitered squares, or intarsia, or patches put together somehow.
I'm a regular subscriber to Interweave KNits and have been for many years - I often am upset with your photos because they look lovely and often show off the model or the setting rather than the sweater. I like to look at how a sweater is put together but cannot do that if it is wrapped aound something or "artfully" draped over something.
This is the most stunning scarf to date for me. I have knitted 2 of them in kid mohair from Spotlight but the next one i will buy only white and dye the colours shown in the photo. The only colours i could get in mohair were not in this colour range. Although they turned out lovely the scarves were not as vibrant as shown above. So easy and interesting to knit.

Good Morning/Afternoon to You...
This is and I think will always be my most favorite
Knitting Patterns - Modern Quilt Wrap Scarf...
I even have Mag Kandis's book but haven't
been able to find a suitable Yarn to make
this exceptional Wrap-Scarf..
The suggested yarn is much too Fine a yarn for me
to knit with, so I continue to search everywhere for
an alternate yarn...
Also since I have never tried knitting Modular style of
Knitting - I will definitely need a couple of lessons
to learn how to pick up stitches in order to add new
I am not so worried about learning how to do that,
but am in a tissy in not finding a suitable yarn.
I have looked at other people's finished Wrap-Scarf
on Rivalry and must say wasn't taken by any of the
So if you know of any Yarns that you think might be
suitable to knit this, then I would love to hear about them.
Thank you for sharing this magnificent Wrap-Scarf.
Thanks for the wonderful pattern as I am an avid quilter and embroider just ove this funky scalf with wonderfu earthy colours. Brenda. Australia
