Skewed is a small wrap made from one Frabjous Fibers March Hare Mini Skein Pack. It is made using dropped stitches to create texture, and uses knit stitches only, no purls. If you want your wrap to be a bit bigger, just get yourself a second mini skein pack and keep on knitting!

  1. Thank you for the pattern! I am on my way to the website for the yarn. I am a newbie knitter and am a little confused on the directions to “turn”, plus I think I like to make things more complicated than they are 🙂 I am casting on 3 stitches holding the needle in my right hand, I then place the needle in my left hand and begin the first row. Is that the turn you mean? Thank you for any help and your patience!

    • It just means to start the new row. If I don’t put it in, people ask if they are supposed to work in rounds. So, yes, it is when you switch the needles to the other hands to start the next row. 🙂

  2. This is so beautiful. I can’t wait to choose my colors when I next go shopping. I want to cast it on like NOW. 😀 Thank you for sharing this.

  3. I see from the photo that you can make it the size you want. However, how/where do you start the decrease once you get to the desired length?

    • The wrap is made at an angle starting at the point. You repeat the 4 row repeat until the wrap is the size you want, then you bind off. Easy~peasy.

  4. I LOVE this pattern. I’m making several for Christmas gifts in KnitPicks Hawthorne on size 7 needles. (And finally will make one for myself!) What you can’t see in the photo above is the sweet drop stitch lacy row that gives lovely texture and drape. Thanks for this pattern!

  5. Hi Jessie,
    I’d really love to give this pattern a go. I find it really hard to visualise from a written pattern though. I’ve seen on the crochet version you have done a video, would you be able to do the same for the knit version? The first few rows I follow fine, its when it gets to row 6 and 7 with the k1 (yo, k1) and the kfb (drop yo, k1) that I get confused. Any help understanding these rows better would be much appreciated! 🙂
    Thanks,
    Hannah

    • I’m sorry, but videos take a very long time to produce, so I don’t make them for all my patterns. You can join the Facebook group I have listed at the bottom of my patterns and ask questions there. There are usually plenty of people, including myself, around to help.
      As for the parts you say are confusing you: K1 (yo, k1) means you knit 1, you yarn over, you knit one, and you continue to yarn over then knit one then yarn over then knit one. The kfb (drop yo, k1) means you knit in the front and the back of the first st, then you just drop the yarn over from the previous row off your needle, then knit one, then repeat the drop and knit one across. If you don’t know how to do any of those sts, there are video on you tube that you can find by searching the stitch.

      • So there repeat stitches in this pattern? That is what’s in the ()? Usually repeats are inducted by **. Glad I read the comments because I wouldn’t have repeated the drop you K1. Hope that I get it right. I can see beginner knitters being confused.

  6. Such a lovely pattern! I’m making it with one of the Premier Yarn Sweet Rolls yarns, Wasabi. Occasionally, I get a bit lost and start skewing the other direction. Any hints for a loopy knitter?
