January Friday Knit-along: Modular Inlay Wrap

Course by Jody James

  • Advanced Beginner




This garter stitch design is a graphic statement piece knit with fingering weight yarn. The fabric is knit from the center outward as you work one section at a time. Stitches are picked up from previous sections for an entirely seamless knit. The pattern is written for four colors or you can make a scrappy multi-color sample using as many colors as you like! Check out the kits we put together here.

Every month we like to start a new knit-along project at Cattywampus. These are fun, casual gatherings with the support of our resident knit pro Jody James and a gaggle of fellow knitters. It's a chance to enjoy knitting a common project along with others. It's not really a class, so you should have some knit skills already. If you want to knit along with us, but need extra help, then please contact us to schedule a private lesson (in person or virtually). Our official knit-along meetups for this project are on Fridays 11 am - 1 pm, but you are welcome to knit anytime and at your own pace. Our gatherings are virtual so that we can be together wherever we are!

Pattern Details & Yarn Requirements

Finished size:
76 x 28 inches

20 sts x 36 rows = 4 inches in garter stitch after blocking

Suggested needles:
Needle size is suggested only, you will need to swatch to determine the needle size needed to achieve gauge.
Three pairs US 5 (3.75 mm) circular needles, 40 inch length

Approximately 1,900 yards fingering weight

Color A - 900 yards
Color B - 500 yards
Color C - 250 yards
Color D - 250 yards

Multi-color version:
Stephen used a variety of semi-solid and speckled fingering weight yarns for the multi-color sample. You need small yarn amounts for the first sections in the middle and larger amounts of yarn for the sections toward the edge. Most of the color A central sections require fewer than 100 yards per section. All triangle sections use fewer than 100 yards per section except the last big triangle sections on each tip of the wrap which require about 125 yards each. If you are making a multi-color version, gather a pile of colors with plenty of yardage to spare, so you have lots of color choosing options. Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails are great for this! These mini skeins are 52 yards each. We've put together kits that use a variety of yarns so you can have a mix of colors, which you can always add to for even more flair.
