Find those two precious skeins of sock yarn in your stash and cast-on for this beauty! Instructions are both charted and written, with tips included for adjusting the side, and photos and video links to illustrate techniques that might be unfamiliar.

This wrap is finished on all 4 sides - the trim along the length is knit together with the main stitch pattern, then the shorter width edges are finished off with an applied edging. The techniques in this pattern would be a good match for most Intermediate Knitters.

This wrap can dress up a casual outfit as well as it can cover a formal dress. Wrap it around the neck as a scarf or increase the number of repeats of the main stitch pattern to create a larger, keep-warm wrap to use in your chilly office. This wrap is as flexible as your wardrobe, and quite a lot of fun to make!

Stitches include: knit, purl, yarn over, K2tog, P2tog, and SSK. Techniques include: knitting flat, working an applied edging, and whip stitching very short seams at the corners (video link provided)

A group of fantastic testers had no trouble finishing their projects in less than a month. Take your turn at this quick knit and have a lovely new accessory by fall!

Special thanks to JudyeNaz, MargiBorck, dpecg, and Kirky for helping me work the kinks out!

After checking out through Ravelry, you will receive links to two versions of this pattern for you to download. The 10MB version features a very clear chart on page 2. For those who don’t want to download / store such a large file, you may prefer the 500KB version, where the large chart on page 2 is still readable, but has significantly lower resolution than in the 10MB version.
