Pat­tern Notes

Wrap is worked flat and then seamed and a cowl is worked in the round.

When us­ing the gra­di­ent yarn, fin­ish the en­tire ball and then join the same color from the next ball. So in our sam­ple, the first ball would go from gray to pur­ple, then the 2nd from pur­ple to gray, and so on.

Wrap

Cast on 32 sts. Work in Seed St for 10 rows. Work [Rows 1­– 6] of Wrap pat 14 times. Rect­an­gle should mea­sure ap­prox 46 inches. Bind off all sts loosely. Sew the bound-off edge to the first 16 inches of the RH edge of the fab­ric to cre­ate the wrap.

Fin­ish­ing

Block lightly.

Cowl

With RS fac­ing, pick up and knit 47 sts, pick­ing up at a rate of 1 st ev­ery other row around neck edge, pm and join to work in the rnd. Work in Seed St for 9 inches. Bind off all sts loosely. Weave in all ends.
