I called this a wrap jacket, not because it overlaps or ties in front … but because it is a cross between a wrap (a rectangular shawl) and a jacket—and functions beautifully as both!

It is a one-size-fits-all piece that is both easy to knit and to wear. For two weeks after I made it, I wore it every day—over a dress, a shirt, a sweater, even my pajamas! I am now thinking I need to knit a second version, in an alternate colour, but am finding the chartreuse surprisingly versatile!

What makes it easy to knit is that it has absolutely no shaping and only 2 tiny, near-invisible seams.

What makes it easy to wear is that it is spacious enough to slip over most anything! (The closure, shown in one photo on the Ravelry page, is made by JUL. It screws in, so can be used for any number of projects.)

There are notes in the pattern for how to add circumference or how to choose an appropriate substitute yarn. And there is a photo for the two tiny seams you will execute!
