Product description

“This wrap pattern was designed to give knitters several options for construction and size. It is recommended that you refer to the diagrams when choosing the version you would like to make. Version A is a simple rectangle that features a triangular garter stitch inlay; Version 2 is an L-Shape that features an arrowhead garter inlay centered over the shawl’s “spine”.

Each wrap includes a wide or narrow version to choose from and the optional mesh extensions may be embraced or ignored (knitter’s preference!). I like having options – and so hoped to provide you with some as well.” – Grace Anna Farrow

  • Pattern Updates

    3 July 2012: 

    On the Blueprint (page 2 of pattern), under “Finished Dimensions”, for both sizes A1 (A2, A3, A4) and B1 (B2, B3, B4), the sizes should be listed as follows: “Narrow Version w/o mesh extension (Wide Version w/o mesh extension, Narrow Version w/mesh extension, Wide Version w/mesh extension)”. In the erroneous pattern, the two versions in red were accidentally reversed.
