Color Block Bias Wrap: The Ideal Winter Knit

Looking for a warm and cozy knit for these snowy days? We absolutely loved knitting (and now love wearing) the Color Block Bias Wrap using Chalet yarn. Although this project has a luxurious drape to it, it knits up quickly on size 13 needles. Classic Elite’s Chalet yarn is a blend of Alpaca and Bamboo that uses a unique lofty chainette construction that feels like a cloud… this is fireside knitting at its best!
