Perpetual Hope Wrap PDF- Knitting Pattern
Ready to take on an epic project? The Perpetual Hope wrap delivers just what you need during the busy holiday season: lots of meditative garter goodness with an interesting construction twist every once in a while. Designed to make the most of your minis, this shawl looks stunning in a gradient or with random color placement – the overall effect is up to you. Now let’s settle into some restorative knitting!
Originally designed for the Queen City Yarn Home Alone-themed Advent box, this shawl is named Perpetual Hope because of a certain scene in the movie – check it out!
22 sts and 40 rows = 4”/10 cm, garter, wet blocked and laid flat to dry, not pinned or stretched
Be sure to confirm gauge so you don’t run out of yarn!!

This pattern will work with any arrangement of yarn colors – you can even repeat colors
throughout the shawl, though you should not place the same color next to itself.
The original sample was knit with mini skeins arranged to form a gradient.
If you are working with the Queen City Advent Box, the mini skein colors are already arranged for you.
If you are working with other yarn and would like to knit a gradient shawl, arrange your 24 mini skeins in a gradient. Then take the first mini skein in the gradient and move it to the opposite end of the gradient.
If you are working with another mystery advent kit that is already arranged with a gradient, set aside the yarn from Day 1 and save it to the end. Start with Day 2 as your C1, Day 3 as your C2, etc. Your Day 1 that you set aside will become C24 at the end.
You will sometimes stripe colors. Do not cut your yarn unless instructed to do so – just carry it up the side.
