Video Tutorial: How to Knit Easy and Quick Brighten My Day Knit Wrap

Red Heart has a new FREE pattern called the Brighten My Day Knit Wrap. This is a great project for the beginner who wants to expand their skills into color changing. Although the pattern may look like there are many balls of yarn to manage the pattern only requires two colors. Super Saver stripes is what does all the work.

Brighten My Day Knit Wrap:

Super Saver yarn has been a favorite among knitters and crocheters for over 30 years. Super Saver is a 100% acrylic worsted weight, size 4 yarn that comes in over 120 beautiful colors. No-dye-lot solids mean all skeins of a solid color match, so it’s easy to buy another skein and continue the project.

For this pattern you will need to have one solid color and one color of Super Saver Stripes. If you haven’t heard of Super Saver stripes yet you are missing out! There are many great patterns available on Red Heart’s website and on Ravelry that use this yarn.

Super Saver Stripes is a great choice because it does all of the color work for you. Learn more about Super Saver Stripes in the post I wrote when the yarn first became available with Super Saver Ombre.

    I had hoped to enter this week’s trivia question thiseek being 12/22-12/27 but when I went to type in my answer of (9932 Cabana) I could not and then I tried hitting the arrow on the bottom right of my screen hoping to maybe make the box bigger to make it easier to type answer and then it said you have entered one answer. Which I have not yet. Am I going to be able to try again. I do not want to keep trying and take anyone elses chances away. If you or I mean anyone you have working for you to help me figure out what a doup I am that would be great. I just loved catching as many videos as I can. I live in Wisconsin and work during daytime hours in a pharmacy so I miss quite a few but I get back to you tube when I can. You can call me a newbe to you be. Ok I better go to sleep now my jokes really are not funny. Merry Christmas Happy New Year and may you and your families New Year’s Day be like a Unicorn…….magical.

    Just finished watching your video on the Brighten My Day wrap. I hope to get started on mine in a day or two. Can I make it larger by just knitting more than the 60 stitches? I prefer a longer wrap and usually make mine longer than the pattern calls for. Keep the how-to videos coming. I have learned so much from you both in knitting and crochet. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
