CLIMATE WRAP - Printed pattern


13-page printed knitting pattern

Please note: this listing is for the pattern only, yarns are not included.

The earth’s temperature is climbing, glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising and wildlife is scrambling to keep pace.
Climate change has led to extreme weather events, hurricanes, heatwaves, wildfires, droughts, floods, and we need to act now if we have any hope of stemming the effects.
This project will track temperature patterns to help highlight the changing climate in your part of the world.

This is a year-long knitting project documenting the highest temperature for your region in the form of a Wrap.
You will be recording the top temperature each day in your local region to log the city’s particular weather patterns and track the possible effects of climate change on seasonal temperatures.

The pattern is a simple Wrap in a rectangular construction using fingering weight / 4 ply yarn.
It is knit straight throughout, knitting 2 rows of pattern in the temperature yarn colour for that day.

The first seven months have a different stitch pattern each month, from August onwards you will be repeating months May back to January in a reverse order.

You have the option of adding crystal beads to your Wrap to highlight special events in the year (birthdays/weddings etc), making it both a temperature and memory project.

A lovely mindful slow knitting project to keep you company for the whole year

3.25mm (US 3) needles
Collapsible eye needle to add crystals/beads.
Optional progress keeper to mark the beginning of every month.

26 sts x 40 rows = 10cm/4” measured over trinity/double-moss/crocus pattern after blocking.

Finished measurements after blocking:
70cm x 186cm / 28” x 74”

Fingering weight / 4-ply yarn of any type.
Because this is a temperature project, it is hard to predict how much of each colour you may need, it is totally dependant on the weather fluctuations for your region.
An estimate of total yarn amount would be 450 -500 grams (4 -5 x 100g skeins).

4mm bicone crystal beads as required – see section on knitting with crystal beads.
Full instructions are given in the pattern on how to knit in the crystal beads.
