This simple rectangle-shaped wrap is mostly knit in the round. The center rectangle is cast-on and knit flat. After only one inch, stitches are picked up all around the rectangle and worked in the round from there. Two increases at each corner on every other round maintains the rectangle shape. Instructions are written with the color changes used in the sample, but use this opportunity to play around with your own color schemes, stash bust and use different kinds of yarns to create a fun unexpected texture. This is the perfect carefree project as the gauge doesn’t matter; it’ll only change the proportions of the rectangle without affecting the design in general.
