I started this cheerful sunny wrap back in February, when skies were grey, and yes that’s metaphorically speaking as well as meteorological.  That was probably at the lowest point of the house move journey when things were up in the air and I needed some serious distraction.

The pattern is Saltire by Lily Go (link will take you to Ravelry) and it’s a pretty complex pattern featuring lots of crossed stitches.  It took quite a bit of concentration to get started and as I was working in stripes with a gradient pack, there were loads of ends to sew in when I’d finished.  It took about a month of evening TV crochet to finish and I am super happy with how it turned out.  I chose the large size as I was pretty sure I had enough yarn to do it, and I made it with inches to spare of each colour.  The yarn is bluefaced leicester from WooSheeps, though I believe they no longer do this particular colour pack any more.  Click on the images for a larger view.

Here are a few close ups of the stitch pattern.
