This luxuriously long rectangular wrap, inspired by an image of a starry sky above a ring of evergreens, features two lace patterns; the upper pattern is beaded to evoke the
star-filled sky.

The wrap is worked flat from the bottom up with a subtly scalloped cast-on edge naturally created by the lacy tree pattern. A 3-stitch garter stitch border on both sides and a 3-stitch I-Cord Bind-Off give the other edges a neat finish.
