The D’Amour Wrap is perfect for the knitter interested in a stranding adventure. The entire wrap is mapped out in a series of detailed charts to navigate the journey. At first glance, the charts appear symmetrical, but upon further exploration you’ll see that each side has its own variations, making it unique. Using the technique of locked floats (page 11) makes both the front and back beautiful. Once the stranded portion is complete, an applied I-cord edge finishes the wrap.

Don’t let the large charts stop you from tackling this gorgeous piece! Remember what I said earlier about the difference between difficult and time-consuming? Filled with geometric and stylistic designs, this wrap promises to be a showstopper.

Knitting Knowledge
This project is worked flat and uses the following techniques:
• Knitting with circular and double-pointed needles
• Casting on
• Reading and navigating multiple charts
• Knitting and purling
• Locking floats
• Applied I-cord
• Finishing

This project requires working from several large charts simultaneously. Place markers at regular intervals to help keep your place.

Remember to keep your yarns in the same order during the entire project. Lock the floating yarn every other stitch.
