The first in in our Graduating Stripes Series, similar to the Sonar Shawl and Trilinear, but very unique in construction.

This spectacular rectangle shaped wrap is knit in the round from the center out with widening, contrasting stripes with NO purl stitches.

Worked completely in the round beginning with Judy’s Magic Cast On and edged with attached I-Cord. Directions are written and stripe patterns are charted.

The nature of the pattern makes it perfect for bold and colorful yarns.
