This pattern was inspired by the mere fact that sometimes there are people in our lives who are so cherished that we need to gift them a hand knit “just because”. No special occasion is needed for giving a hand made gift to those we love, just being blessed by their friendship and love in return makes them deserving enough. I would get gifts at times throughout the year from my oldest sister Wendy, just because she loved me. In any relationship there are two separate persons, personalities, values, beliefs (colors). The “bridge” is when there is a “meeting of the minds”, a common ground or silent understanding where two people may feel like one. Let this pattern inspire you to gift this wrap to someone just because you love them and I’m sure they will feel loved and cherished for it.

This is an asymmetrical triangle that recommends the following yarn: BAERENWOLLE/BAERENfluff or fingering/sport weight yarn, 2 skeins total, each 375-400 yards of HIGHLY contrasting colors (one tonal/solid and one variegated/gradient/speckled). As in any pattern, changing the needle size or weight of yarn will change the overall garment drape, size and yardage required. The pattern is worked flat, casting on a few stitches which increases as it is knitted, binding off several stitches using picots, creating an asymmetrical shape. Final size is approximately 64-68 inches in length, 15 inches deep.
