Dreamcoat Wrap by Daniel Yuhas

Fall is that time of year when all my sweaters wind up at work.  The mornings grow brisk and a bit chilly, but often as not, the afternoon turns out sunny, bright and warm.  It’s time to break out the transitional garments, and how better to kick things off than with a wrap knit in a transitional color-changing yarn? Allow me to introduce Dreamcoat.

You’ll be thrilled and surprised at the color combinations that appear as you go.  Knit in a fun zigzag stitch, this big wrap works up surprisingly quickly. Suitable for knitters of all skill levels yet entertaining no matter how expert you are, and because of the magic of color-changing yarn, no two will ever be the same.  If you can knit, purl, and turn around, you can make this.

*In case you weren’t raised on hokey showtunes, it’s a line from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat – Joseph gets all puffed up about his new coat, and croons “I am handsome, I am smart, I am a walking work of art.”

    Hey Daniel,
    Your tweet on Dreamcoat led me to these BEAUUUTIFUL photos. We’d love to see your patterns in our store; do you wholesale? Looks like this wrap would also make a great class project, and I see you are in NYC. Could we get you up to New Haven?
