From pattern description: When you’re thinking about gifts for your bridesmaids, consider this wrap. It doesn’t take much yarn, so it’s economical enough to make for several girlfriends, yet it looks expensive and chic. It’s such a practical present because your friends can wear it for the wedding and long afterwards as well. You can tie the wrap five different ways, making it one of the most versatile items you could ever knit. The sleeves are stockinette and the body is one-by-one rib, all in soft baby alpaca. Make one for each bridesmaid in a different color-- and you might even want one for yourself!

Additional Gauge Information:
18 sts by 20 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch with size 9 needles
Since Fishnet yarn is such a thin yarn knitted on large needles, the gauge for the rib stitch is a little difficult to pinpoint precisely. However, it is important that the shoulder, armhole, and sleeve measurements are consistent.

Additional Notions

  • Large tapestry needle
  • Straight pins (recommended)
