Rayne Wrap Cardigan

Rayne Wrap Cardigan

Rayne is an easy, fast-knitting and flattering wrap, sweater, or shawl – however you think of it. Sleeves are picked up and knit down to the wrist in the round for a completely seamless garment. This versatile piece will land a great place in any wardrobe! Perfect for wrapping around yourself on a chilly day, or just a great excuse to snuggle up under a blanket of your favourite yarn.

To fit bust: 28[32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52] inches around full bust
Finished Crossback Measurement: 13[13.5, 14, 15, 16, 16.5, 17] inches.

To choose the most accurate size to make, measure yourself (or get a friend to help!) from armpit to armpit across the back and choose the closest back measurement, erring on the larger side.

Noro Silk Garden [45% silk, 45% kid mohair, 10% lamb’s wool; 110 yards/50 g skein]; colour 269; 8[8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15] skeins
Or 840[880, 990, 1100, 1200, 1430, 1650] yards of worsted weight yarn.

Worsted weight yarn is purposefully knit at a looser than suggested gauge to result in a drapey fabric.

6.5 mm straight or 24” circular needles
6.5 mm double-pointed needles
waste yarn
tapestry needle

12 stitches and 18 rows = 10 cm square in stockinette stitch.

This pattern is suitable for a beginner. Easy peasy!

    Ooh, this is great. It will probably end up being my first pattern for 2008 (I’m not allowed to buy yarn until then).

    Not only would I like to see the back, I am wondering if it could be worn backwards. The back is the part of me that needs covering up!

  7. […] That’s five (five!) skeins of Noro Kureyon, only four of which are being added to the current Lizard Ridge total (8 skeins) because that cream colored skein is going to be knit up into a pair of Kolenya to wear all winter long. I have been in love with that colorway ever since seeing Cosmicpluto’s Rayne Wrap Cardigan and I think the winter whites and cream colors will just look awesome and keep my hands toasty this grey English winter.

    Fabulous, it’s in my queue. :)

  9. […]  This store used to be on the same block (or fairly nearby) but in a smaller underground space. It used to be cozy but kind of twee, and the new space is much better. It does feel somewhat like a general store, and it has a large selection of yarn, as well as fabrics and other crafty notions. It’s not the most beautifully arranged store (that distinction still goes to Purl and Loop), but it feels comprehensive, as well as offering several types of yarn I haven’t seen at other stores, including a beige/white Noro shade, which was quite beautiful. (I think it’s the same shade as used in this wrap.) It also had a really large book selection, and spinning supplies. […]

    I love the a-symmetry! How does it look worn open?Waiting to see more views,

  11. […] Despite my issues with Noro Silk Garden–the price, mainly, and then all the little squiggly white fibers in the yarn that remind me of quinoa–I fell completely in love with its natural colorways, 267 and 269, after seeing 269 on CosmicPluto’s blog. When I was at Article Pract and spotted both colorways in their bins of Silk Garden, it seemed like a great opportunity to support a local yarn store/do some souvenir shopping/cave in to my greed for these colors. So I picked up one skein of each and cast on for another stripy scarf almost immediately. […]

    Hi there,

    I was wondering what the back looks like (how it is constructed ) do you have any pictures.

    I love the wrap on you.

    I really need to know how it looks open and what the back looks like. Looks like a great design.

  14. […] Once I get over this I think I’ll make Rayne instead. […]

  15. […] Now I’ve got a sweater begging me to be knit. I have no pattern and don’t think I’ll find one! I saw this and it reminded me and I’ve been crazy to do something about it today! I’ve sewn up a basic trial run (Ben really digs it) and need to figure out how to proceed. I’m so excited! I’ve been hemming and hawing with this basic idea for a few months and finally drew it on paper. It’s got major kinks before I knit it, so I’ll just leave you hanging. […]

  16. […] And in the queue : Back-To-School U-Neck Vest Cropped Cardigan With Leaf Ties (I’ll probably save this one for the Earth element) 28thirty (I want a yellow one, so this may wait for Air) Notre Dame de Grace (It’s all about Montreal, how could I not?) Rayne Wrap (Water?) […]

  17. […] second cardigan is the Rayne Wrap Cardigan from Cosmicpluto […]

  18. […] finished one project this week: the Rayne Wrap cardigan, I have been making since january. No photos. need to weave in ends before a final photo […]
