The Fascination Wrap is a colorwork pattern with a distinctive stripe pattern, created with the stacked-stitch technique. Stacked stitches are used to create vertical movement within a row and extreme, wavy stripes without stranding on the wrong side of the piece or the use of other traditional colorwork methods.

After an introduction to the basic principles and components of this technique, we will cast on a scarf or swatch and discover how each row of stitches fits together to form a flat fabric. We will learn how to move markers, keep track of stitch count, and fix mistakes in a stack pattern. We will also learn to weave-in ends at the end of each color stripe to save time during finishing.

Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class:
Experience reading charts or written instructions. Students should be comfortable working various types of increases and decreases.

Brilliant technique and class

Xandy was amazing.....clear, knowledgeable and fun! This technique is amazing. I must say it made my head hurt a bit, but I absolutely loved what can be done with multiple increases and decreases. Stunning technique.

Loved it

Pacing was great. I'd taken Stacked Stitches with Xandy in the past but felt that this time I really got it in a different way. Tying it to a project makes it more likely for me to do it and this feels much more manageable than trying to start with Fox Paws. Also, I have lots of fingering yarns in stash so...
