Inspired by an 1870’s counterpane pattern, this nearly-circular wrap combines tailored details with a feminine sensibility. Rise to the challenge of the initial cast-on and you’ll be rewarded with an easy decreasing rib pattern that simultaneously eliminates stitches and the need for seaming. The interplay of delicate eyelets and bold angular ribbed decreases add drama to the clean lines of this go-anywhere piece.
