Corinne is an attractive wrap, worn well inside or out, and textured with varying sizes of simple leafy lace. Its worsted weight yarn creates pronounced stitch definition, and provides warmth with styling. Short rows taper the upper edge, keeping it comfortably on the shoulders with room to move about. This piece is worked length-wise, its ends woven to complete the loop. You’ll find Corinne to be a fun and quick, multi-season knit. Great as a gift too – surely a welcomed addition to any wardrobe.
