This wrap is a fun and easy knit.
Wearing this wrap makes you feel like you are getting a hug! I got the idea to make this wrap from a friend who was complaining that wearing a rectangular shawl was fun, but she did not like it moving around.
Once I finished designing and knitting up the wrap, during the photo-shoot, in preparation of the pattern release, another friend told me that she had seen a similar wrap pattern on Ravelry. My heart sank! But, once I checked on Ravelry, I realized that even though my pattern was similar, it was different enough.
The yarns posted for this pattern are winter type yarns, but I would imagine that this wrap would also look great worked up in an aran or bulky cotton yarn.
Note: Some knitters are trying to work off the previous pattern download and are confused about a typo. There is an updated version to download. Just keep in mind that you are knitting a big piece of stockinette rectangle and to prevent it from rolling, you are knitting a 6 stitch k1/p1 rib border on each side.
