This versatile arrow shaped wrap is knit on the bias, and results in a fun knit. The original wrap was knit with 2 kits of minis, 5 colors each so 10 colors in total. You can also use your leftovers from your fade projects - there is really no limit to what you can do with this pattern.
Soothing combo of some garter stitch and ripple rows is perfect for some late summer knitting and its name evokes summer too! I love summer reminders in the midst of winter.
Kits are available through Bluprint, you could even use these same colors I did which gave the wrap its name:)
Speaking of name - I took this phrase from one of my favorite 90s movies, Reality Bites. The phrase always struck me as a great response to peoples snobbery and harsh attitude.
