Today’s spotlight from new book Baskerville – dawn to dusk  is my ombré Teign wrap. This generous hug of a wrap is knit in all four colours of Baskerville – natural grey Dawn, light blue Umbra, mid-blue Eventide, and darkest Dusk.

When I was designing this I wanted it to be a calm, relaxing knit broken with small bits of simple colourwork for interest. Perfect for those beginning colourwork as the colourwork sections are quit small and easy to navigate in just 2 colours that get carried up the side in the knit on icord edging that finishes the simple stockinette.screen-shot-2016-09-19-at-10-29-06

The gentle scallop design is inspired by elegant Japanese Sashiko and Shibori scale patterns I saw while researching indigo dyeing.
