The April Snow Wrap Kit has been designed by the talented Andreas Ruthemann (@ruthemann_design), who`s debuting pattern, the Mårvej Sweater was one of the most beautiful design that we`ve seen in this year so far.
We have teamed up with Andreas to create 11 stunning colourway options - designed/re-designed specifically for the Wrap.
The kit includes 3 skeins of fingering weight variegated yarn + 1 skein undyed or tonal colourway on your chosen base.
Please note that all yarns shown on the photos are non-superwash Merino. If you choose the superwash base expect brighter colours and sharper speckles.

THE STORY BEHIND
Springtime brings the first warm days of the year, but still it can be really wintry so a light and drapy scarf is a good companion these days.
This wrap design features chaotic dots and stripes, that remind of fluffy snow flakes and stormy snow flurries on a green background – springtime snow, so to say.
Anyone who knows the music of Prince, has surely heard about April Snow. „Sometimes it snows in April“ always was one of my favourite songs and when Prince passed away, it got a completely new meaning. Because it was April – and it was snowing here in Hamburg. I cannot describe how deeply touching this was.
I hope Prince would like this design, although I’m sure he would have preferred a purple version.
April Snow is an assigned pooling wrap that is knitted diagonally and has an icord edge. There are alternating pattern sections to bring out the unique yarn’s colour play in different ways.
The finished wrap measures about 2,30 m x 0,5 m / 90.5“ x 19.6“ after washing and blocking.
20 sts x 38 rows = 10 cm / 4“
For a shawl or wrap, the gauge is not really important so don’t worry if you don’t meet the exact numbers.

Each skein is hand-dyed in small batches and variations between skeins should be expected. We dye and store all of our yarn in our smoke-free and pet-free home. Due to the individual nature of hand-dyed yarn, I would always recommend alternating skeins.
The skeins has been photographed in natural light to give you the best representation of colour, but please be aware that screens and monitors can differ slightly. I cannot guarantee that your device's display of any colour will be accurate.
High quality acid dyes are properly set before washing and rinsing twice to assure the colour adheres correctly, however some bright or extreme colours may bleed slightly in the first wash.
