Pure and simple - only garter stitch and some stripes, knitted in soft merino, make up for this big and squishy wrap. A drop-stitch border adds a tiny bit of frilliness and lightness.
Treat yourself to an easy bit of knitting and play with your favourite colours and snuggle up in cozy merino goodness!
