Lisa's Description: 

There are few places on earth that can rival the beauty of the mountains, and the sense of wonder that can be felt simply by looking at them. This wrap is an exciting adventure intended to capture that spirit! It will challenge you at times, but will hopefully thrill and inspire you as well. This mystery wrap is a breath of fresh air filled with the beauty of nature at every turn.


  • Yarn: Balayage by Pascuali / 80% Baby Alpaca, 20% Organic Extrafine Merino / 190 yds / 50 g skein
    • MC: 4 balls
    • CC1-7: 1 ball of each. 

      NOTE: The MC yardage provided fits perfectly within the 740 yards that Lisa actually used for her sample (this is 85% of the recommended yardage). This means, if you knit to gauge you will have plenty of yarn. But it is 60 yards shy of the 800 yards she recommends for gauge variation. So, if you tend to be a loose knitter, you have the option to add a ball of the MC to your order. 
  • Pattern is available directly from the designer HERE with a great preorder discount using the code: MOUNTAINEER

Pattern Details

Designed using a different yarn - we are pairing this project with Pascuali's "Balayage" because it is soft against the body, has great texture, excellent stitch definition and an incredible color palette to play with.


It's a mystery, however, Lisa has shared the following: "You’ll explore new terrain, play with familiar stitches in new ways, and will hopefully be delighted by a few surprises along the way. I’ll be your guide through the verdant landscapes, with tutorial videos and KAL threads to connect you with other adventurers all over the world! You’ll find all the links you need at the end of each clue. The mountains are calling... let’s cast on!"


The shape is part of the mystery, but you can expect a final piece that is similar in size to "Just Beachy"


US 5 (3.75mm) needles (or as required to meet gauge); 40”/100cm length
