Product description

Textured patterns found on traditional fishermen’s sweaters adorn this simple and practical stole. The knitting is straightforward, accessible to the adventurous beginner. The wrap achieves its generous dimensions and fluid drape through the use of blocking wires, typically used to put knitted lace under tension as it dries to open up the stitch motifs. Wires allow for even stretching of the fabric while maintaining a crisp, straight edge on all sides.

Designer: Jared Flood

Collection: Arbor Collection & BT Classics

 

Guernsey Wrap is also available as a gift kit containing eight skeins of Arbor yarn in the color of your choice and a coupon code for digital download of the Guernsey Wrap pattern.
