A singular wrap, knit in two drastically different yarn weights from Debbie Bliss/KFI, is a study in contrast. Divided by sheer stockinette bands worked in silk/mohair Angel, garter-stitch cutout panels, in bulky chainette Paloma, appear to float weightlessly. They’re created using Hamilton’s trademarked DropStitch Openwork technique, which omits the need to break the yarn used to knit the vertical columns.

This openwork wrap is knit horizontally in a drop stitch pattern using two different weights of yarn
