Textured patterns found on traditional fishermen’s sweaters adorn this simple and practical stole. The knitting is straightforward, accessible to the adventurous beginner. The wrap achieves its generous dimensions and fluid drape through the use of blocking wires, typically used to put knitted lace under tension as it dries to open up the stitch motifs. Wires allow for even stretching of the fabric while maintaining a crisp, straight edge on all sides.

Note: If you have previously purchased a digital version of Guernsey Wrap, you will be gifted the updated version on the launch of the Arbor Collection, 10/19/16.
