You keep using that wrap… I do not think it is what you think it is. Is this a wrap? A cowl? A capelet? A shrug? The options are numerous, the lace is good for beginners, and the results are fit for a princess or a bride. It’s Inconceivable!

Why else is this Inconceivable!?

  • It’s perfect for a pleasure cruise at night through eel (or shark) infested waters (or for curling up with a good book or movie)…
  • It looks good on both sides, which is inconceivable! in a wrap…
  • The wrap can be worn at least six different ways, depending on how you choose to lace it with ribbon through the border…
  • It is inspired by the embroidered pattern of Vizzini’s coat…
  • The original yarn is a golden green, also inspired by Vizzini’s coat…
  • The Princess Bride is my all time favorite movie, and I’ve been dreaming for years of designing a wrap fit for Buttercup…
  • And finally, you’ll keep using this wrap, even if it doesn’t mean what everyone else thinks it should mean!

Inconceivable! was designed as a Phat Fiber Knit-along in Ravelry for the summer of 2009. Thanks to all the “Phatties” who participated in the development of the pattern and/or in the KAL itself!

The original sample is knit in Xsive Softness Yarn (fingering weight baby alpaca/silk/cashmere blend) in the Inconceivable! Colorway from eXtremeSpinning. Thank you CJ!

Many thanks to pattern testers Carol (CarolSch), Dawn (DawningDreams), Evelyn (NanaRector), Jenessa (TheNoviceKnitter), and Sarah (AlaskanSass).
