All Through The Night
Cold winter nights call for the perfect accessory, warm and soft, yet still light enough to wear inside too. Plus, it’s got to be something a little unusual to brighten up these shorter days… And lets make it easy to knit so we have plenty of time to wear it!
Enter your favorite new accessory… I was so enthralled by the Katia Air Lux yarn that before it even arrived, I had a project in mind. Enter: the All Through the Night Wrap. Designed with drape in mind, this wrap is knit on the bias with a very simple lace repeat. Beginning with just a few stitches, slow and steady increases create a dramatic point on one end. At the other end, quicker decreases make for a wider, blunt end. Between these two ends are inches and inches of gently drifting eyelets – enough inches to allow for maximum wrapping in an endless variety of ways. Lightweight and slinky enough to bunch up around your neck like a regular scarf, All Through the Night is also wide enough to wear over your shoulders as a shawl. Choose to show off the elegant tail, or tuck it inside in favor of the rounder end. I should also mention that both sides of this fabric are beautiful, so in my opinion this piece is completely reversible. In fact, I almost favor the “wrong side” more!
The All Through the Night Wrap pattern uses three skeins of Katia Air Lux Yarn. The one in the photos was made from color 0061. In this color, I think the purl side looks like pewter. It’s so cool! I’d love to see how graceful this would look in a lighter shade too. Or you could go for a real statement piece and use one of the bolder colors. Can’t decide which hue to use? Perhaps you might be interested in one of the (drum roll please)… lovely KITS! Available in Black (as seen in photos), Silver and Red, each kit contains three balls of Air Lux along with the pattern.

I’m a notorious yarn substituter – once I’ve seen something created from one yarn, I can’t help but imagine what other yarns could work. Each different fiber and twist lends its own personality to a piece. Click here to see some other yarns that would work well with this pattern!
Whatever yarn you use, I imagine you’ll want to know some specs before signing on:
Yarn requirements: 984 yards fingering weight yarn
Gauge: 21 sts and 33 rows to 4″ in St st on size US 5 needles
Not just suitable for knitting, Air Lux is also an excellent choice for weaving (it’s half the reason we got it!). Who knew that something so glamorous could also be so versatile!
