This pattern is available as an individual pdf or as part of the Earth Collection. If you previously purchased the Faraway Blues Wrap and wish to purchase the Earth Collection, $7 will automatically be deducted from the collection price.

The Faraway Blues Wrap is the second piece in my Earth Collection, which also includes the Chalice Cowl and Long Way Home Cardigan. Made in Carol Sunday’s “Angelic” yarn, the Faraway Blues Wrap is light and lofty, yet wonderfully warm. It has the coziness of a blanket and the elegance of a formal stole. The lace instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.

If you are interested in being notified when the rest of the Earth Collection and other collections are released, please PM me with your non-ravelry e-mail address, and I will add you to my e-mail list. E-mails from me will be infrequent, and I will not share your address with anyone. I am also available by e-mail if you have any difficulties or questions about the pattern.

Although exact gauge is not essential to the success of this project, deviation from gauge will affect the required yardage, so remember to adjust accordingly. If you are concerned about yardage, work fewer horizontal repeats as opposed to fewer vertical repeats. Working three and a half horizontal repeats will create a generous scarf.

Wrap is worked as a rectangle from end to end. Fringe is added after blocking.
