FIN­ISHED SIZE

Ap­prox 220 x 88cm (86 x 345/8 ") Pic­ture a moody pine for­est at the colder end of au­tumn. A strong fe­male lead (you) strides into shot. Her knitwear’s on point but she’s wrestling with one mys­tery: ‘what should I make next?’ The so­lu­tion is this tweedy wool blend wrap. It’s just the right size for bundling up in and works with the sea­sons, mor­ph­ing from cle­ment-weather cardi­gan to Nar­nia- win­ter thick scarf.

Binge watch a Scandi series while you cro­chet it, then wrap up and go and find a dra­matic land­scape to wist­fully gaze across.
