The Torquata pattern was designed by Ambah O'Brien. Our sample was knit in the Miss Babs Torquata Gradient Set and Oyster Yummy 2-Ply. Babs has also knit herself a Torquata in the Grand Bazaar Caroline Gradient Set with Fleur de Sel as the contrast color.
Torquata is named for the Eucalyptus Torquate or Coral Gum, an Australian species with beautiful flowers in coral pink shades, a colour theme represented beautifully by Miss Babs yarn who have created the perfect gradient set for this design. Use a gradient set or mix and match mini skeins for a fun project in both the planning and knitting stage and will be a perfect way to use up some of those partial skeins in your stash too. Knit on the bias, resulting in an asymmetrical wrap that is easy to wear in a variety of ways. The simple lace makes for a perfect first lace project or a relaxing knit for a seasoned knitter.
You'll need one six-color Gradient Set and one full skein of Yummy 2-Ply to complete this project. Choose the original colorway below - or try another color combination! You can also try this project in luxurious Caroline.
You can purchase the pattern for Torquata directly from the designer on Ravelry. All patterns are sold separately and not included with purchase of yarn.
