Icon - Shibui Birch Version

“Interlocking lusciousness.”

We’re captivated by the angles of Icon—a colorblock wrap designed by Shellie Anderson of Shibui. The interlocking wedges are knit flat in stockinette stitch and shaped by short rows. They travel up the simple rectangle of Icon in a graphic zig-zag pattern. And with a reverse stockinette border, the edges of this wrap won’t curl!

Knit in Shibui Birch, a single ply strand of extra fine merino wool, Icon is lush and lofty. This fiber has a micron count approaching cashmere. This means it’s next-to-the-skin, superbly, scrumptiously soft—perfect to wrap up in!

Choose your colorway for your Icon below; we'll include the free pattern from Shibui when you order from this page. If you'd like to create your own colorway on the Shibui Birch page, you'll need three skeins of your main color, and one skein each of your two contrasting colors (and don't forget to put a request in your order's Notes to include the free pattern).

16" width, 63" length.

5 skeins of Shibui Birch (262 yds/239.6m each): 3 skeins of Color A, 1 skein each of Colors B & C. Shown in Abyss (A), Tar (B) and Ash (C). Or approximately 1300 yards/1188m of sport-weight yarn.

US 6 (4mm) needles, or size needed to obtain gauge. Stitch markers. Tapestry needle. Blocking wires (recommended).

27 sts & 37 rows = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch, relaxed, after blocking.

Row gauge is crucial to ensuring sufficient yardage for the finished piece. An additional skein of colors B and C may be necessary if gauge is not matched. Please swatch with color A to ensure sufficient yardage of B and C.

Icon is worked flat in stockinette stitch using one strand of Birch. Short rows form wedges of color, and cause wrap to relax and become smaller after blocking. A reverse stockinette stitch border prevents the edges of the wrap from curling.
