Notes
The "reflection" part of the Urban Reflection Wrap is created by a stripe pattern that is made up of Fibonacci numbers that fade into each other from opposite ends. You need to keep track of your row counts as you work the pattern so that you know when to change colors.


Herrhdc: Yarn over, insert hook in st indicated, pull up a loop and draw it through the first loop on hook, yarn over and pull through two remaining loops on hook.

The first color section is a lot of rows so you'll be able to spend that time becoming familiar with the pattern.

The pattern is a simple two row repeat, once you get started use the instructions for these two rows and the table that shows you how many rows to work in each color to complete the Urban Reflection Wrap.


Be careful and check your stitch counts at the end of each row. Working with fingering weight yarn and small stitches can make it easy to miss a ch sp or a stitch. 

Instructions
Ch 70

Row 1: Tc in 6th ch from hook (skipped chs count as one tc and one skipped ch), tc in next ch and in each ch across to last ch, 2 tc in last ch, ch 3, turn. (67 tc)

Row 2: (Beg ch 3 counts as herrhdc and ch 1 sp) *Herrhdc in next st, ch 1, sk 1 st,* work * to * across, work last herrhdc in last tc leaving chs unworked, ch 4 turn. (34 herrhdc)

Row 3: (Beg ch 4 counts as tc) Sk next ch 1 sp, tc in next st and in each ch 1 sp and st to last st, 2 tc in last st, ch 3, turn. (67 tc)

Repeat rows 2 and 3 changing colors as stated by this chart:

21 rows: Color A
1 row: Color B
21 rows: A
2 rows: B
13 rows: A
3 rows: B
8 rows: A
5 rows: B

These are the color changes for the first half of the Urban Reflection Wrap. Next week in week 3 we will work the other half of the wrap.

Please join us in the Official String With Style Facebook Group to join me and others that are working on the Urban Reflection Wrap.
