Spring Intentions Wrap – A KNIT ALONG with Katt Weaver
Spring Intentions Wrap – a knit along with Katt Weaver of Heather and Hops.
Katt will be leading us through this wonderful knit along with this gorgeous wrap she has designed using our Cheviot Marsh 4ply, and Tess and I will be joining in and kitting along too!
Spring Intentions Wrap is designed by the oh so lovely Katt Weaver – Katt has a very successful YouTube channel – Heather and Hops, where she documents her knitting journeys, a discord server (a chat group app/website) and a very lovely instagram page.
In Katt’s own words:
“Spring Intentions Wrap is a textured fingering-weight wrap/scarf, knitted flat with knitted I-cord edging for a clean finish.
With this pattern, we have omitted anything too tricky and utilise the humble purl and knit stitches to create gorgeous and intuitive textures.
This is a knit-a-long project, you will be sent sections of the pattern weekly starting on the Spring Equinox, March 20 2021, and will it last 7 weeks.
You can join in at any time and catch up.
The pattern will also come with a secondary PDF that has extra mindful practices, some words by dear friends and guided meditations. The secondary part is optional but is there to encourage mindful knitting. Feel free to take part in reading, enjoy the guided meditations, or omit them entirely.
We also have a discord server for anyone who would like to join the knit-a-long where we can connect from across the world, have virtual knit nights and talk about the practices.
You will also receive a screen printed drawstring – a cosy project or storage bag for your Spring Intentions wrap with a little quote reminding you to knit with intention and love the item you create. The bags are made from 100% cotton, ethically produced by Westford Mill.”
Spring Intentions is knitted from one full skein of Cheviot Marsh 4ply, plus 6 contrasting colours, each taking 2 mini skeins of Cheviot Marsh 4ply.

How much yarn will I need?
This wrap uses 1 full skein of Cheviot Marsh 4ply, plus 12 mini skeins – 2 each of 6 additional colours. 7 colours in total to create a gorgeous textured wrap to mindfully enjoy knitting and wearing.
3.5 mm US 4 24” / 60 cm circular needles, or needles for your preferred method for working flat.
Needle size is suggested only. You will need to swatch to determine the needle size needed to achieve gauge.
24 sts and 38 rows over 4” 10 cm in pattern after blocking.
Scarf – One size 19 “ / 47.5 cm in width & 68 “ / 170 cm in length. You can easily adjust the length throughout by adding/removing rows in any of the sections. Adjust this according to your knitting preferences; if you prefer stockinette, work them in the -mindful simplicity- sections.
Made with our heritage Cheviot Marsh 4ply
100% Cheviot and Romney Marsh Lambs Wool.
Cheviot Marsh is a warm, buoyant yarn that only improves with washing and wearing. It is perfect for comforting everyday jerseys that wrap you in love whilst still looking looking smart. Its stitch definition is fabulous, think elaborate cables or colour work in a garment that will fast become a go to staple of your wardrobe, warm, snuggly and progressively softer.
