One of the three fresh designs for Ambah’s 2023 Festive KAL pattern bundle.

Ambah’s Festive KAL details here.

Euphorbia Wrap has elegantly tapered ends and is worked sideways with decreases forming a central spine. With its chevron shaping and stripes, Euphorbia is an invitation to play with colour and texture. Designed to use a 24-colour DK weight mini skein set, the options are endless; striped, faded, make it scraptastic and use up all those delicious end balls or use colour-changing yarn for a lovely result. Mix up the texture and use a kidsilk or “fluff” yarn in place of one colour. Equally dramatic results can also be enjoyed by simply using two contrasting colours. Euphorbia Wrap is knit tip to tip with shaping which creates interest in this garter stitch project. You’ll find the resulting wrap easy to wear and style. It’s sure to become a wardrobe favourite.
