Skylark Through the Looking Glass - free knit pattern by Jessie At Home

Skylark Through the Looking Glass
Knit Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

I’ve had many requests for a knit version of Skylark in Wonderland, so here it is! This flowing wrap uses Frabjous Fibers Mad Hatter (DK weight) yarn, which comes in many colors for you to personalize your own! It also features short rows for the shaping. When laid out flat, it really does resemble a bird wing.

Size:
42″ x 17″

Yarn:
Frabjous Fibers / Wonderland Yarns Mad Hatter (DK weight)
1 mini skein pack: In a Nutshell: Lights, #54 – 430 yd/5 oz total
1 full size skein: Uncommon Nonsense: Wise Fish, #109 – 344 yd/4 oz

Needles:
US 7/4.5mm

Gauge:
18 sts x 30 rows in stockinette st

Stitches and Skills used:
k – knit
k2tog – knit 2 together
p – purl
pm – place marker
yo – yarn over
st(s) – stitch(es)

Getting Started:
This pattern includes short rows, so sometimes you will end a row with sts still remaining on the right hand needle. For help with short rows, watch this awesome free class from Craftsy.
When working with colors B-F: work last st of even rows and first st of odd rows with the color indicated (B-F) AND color A, treating them as one yarn. This will carry color A to the next point it is needed, leaving less ends to weave in, and creating a little color interest at the bottom of the wrap.
This pattern uses almost all of the full size (4 oz) skein, but has a good bit left over from each of the mini-skeins.

Block. I gave mine a rinse in Unicorn Fibre Rinse, gently squeezed the water and rinse out, then blocked it flat and let it dry for 2 days (it’s a bit humid right now, hence the 2 days to dry). It worked wonderfully!

Wear or give and enjoy!

    I love the look of this pattern and am just starting it. I was surprised in Row 10 where it gives instructions to K2 in the middle of the purl row, twice. After reading through the rest of the pattern and seeing all similar rows with P2 in that specific sequence, I decided to change the K2’s to P2’s, since it would be the only occurrence of it in the entire pattern.

    I don’t know what you’ve got on this page, but the first time I tried to load it, Firefox froze so bad I had to kill it from the task manager, and I nearly ended up killing it again because of a non-responsive script.

      I don’t know what to tell you, I’ve never had that complaint before. Maybe it was another tab you had open causing problems?
