Jesse is a joy to wear! Try it wrapped around your neck for the feel of a cozy cowl, or simply folded and draped over your shoulders. Wear it one day with one color prominent, and the next day with the other color on display.

Jesse is “boomerang” wrap: started at its bottom point with just a few stitches, it grows rapidly along one edge and shrinks slowly along its other edge to create a triangular boomerang shape, with a distinctive curl on one tip.

Jesse is worked in brioche rib. Each “brioche slip” creates a single stitch composed of two loops: a slipped stitch, and a yarn over. On the following row, work these two loops together.

Jesse’s instructions are presented in written form, and as grid-free stitch maps. Visit for more information on stitch maps.
