Product description

Wrap yourself in airy warmth with a geometric stole inspired by seamen’s ganseys. While the original garments were densely knit enough to be nearly waterproof, Ludlow uses two delicate strands of Loft on a large needle for a feather-light fabric and heightened stitch definition. Worked from end to end with basic techniques, this wrap is accessible to beginning knitters as well as veterans who want a project that’s easy to pick up and put down. Knit and purl stitches create reversible blocks of diamonds, arrows, and moss stitch that grow quickly into a simple and satisfying project. There’s no wrong side to the wrap; the two surfaces are different but equally handsome. You may want to follow a custom of the knitters of those handsome old fishing sweaters and hide your initials or the date amongst the patterns in one of the bands.
