This piece captures so perfectly the layers of color that can be present in a piece of agate stone…and with our palette, the potential color combinations seem endless. With a simple garter and slip-stitch motif, worked on the bias with an i-cord edge, this wrap is a fun knit. And with openings near each end, it can be worn in many ways.
