This listing is for the paper pattern of the Columbina Wrap by Ambah O'Brien. It is one of our staff favorites, comes in two sizes and it knits up beautifully!

Harlequin’s cheques dance across this alluring wrap. Named after the romantic hero’s conniving mistress, Columbina begins and ends with a steady rhythm of easy garter rows, interrupted by a dramatic and entertaining crescendo of two-color mosaic, and is embellished with a picot flourish. The perfect project for vibrant, high-contrast colors, the bias shawl comes in two sizes and is shaped only with simple increases and decreases, resulting in a spectacular and sophisticated accessory.

Gauge: 24 sts and 46 rows = 4""/10 cm in garter stitch, blocked.  Gauge is not crucial for this project, but variations will affect yardage and final measurements.  Note: some knitters may need to go
up a needle size to maintain gauge in the mosaic sections.
