If a wrap can’t be too big for you, if you’re looking to create an heirloom blanket, if you like nearly mindless hours of knitting, then Colossus might be right for you. The one pictured here weighs 980g. That’s a total of 9.8 skeins of glorious, magnificent, deliriously-handed fingering weight yarn.

The pattern is currently free as a Ravelry download you can get by clicking Download Now

Knitters can use the details in the pattern with their own preferences about size, color, shape, and ultimately function to create the perfect wrap.  One place to start is your stash. If that’s too daunting, check out some of these combinations as another possible place to start. Your LYS owner can help you choose a gradient that’s exactly to your liking. If they don’t carry our yarns yet, there are a couple of shops who also operate a mail order side of their business and of course, we do.

I’ve started a topic on Ravelry for Colossus. Feel free to read along and participate as you feel, but it’d be a great place to share your color ideas for reactions, suggestions and encouragement from others.

Want to make a Colossus of your own with Meadowcroft, but no local yarn shops near-by who carries our yarn?  Then, tell us how big you want yours to be, either by dimension or skeins required, and the color range you’d love, and we’ll custom build a gradient set for you.  You’ll have an opportunity to see a photo for approval before payment.

If you’re a first time visitor to Meadowcroft, we extend a hearty welcome.  While you’re here, why not check us out?  The menu navigation allows easy browsing in whatever area you like.
