This wrap, evoking the mystery of the forest, is knit in a continuous flow of bias knitting in Garter Stitch until the collar and border are added at the end. Enhanced by the natural striping of a handpainted yarn, it drapes in different directions, when worn in different ways.

It can be worn as a shawl or, when sewn together, as a large cape or poncho.

Instructions include short-row shaping.

Yarn note:

Pattern calls for handpainted, double knitting, medium weight (1100 m./1200 yds.) Photo sample knit in Fleece Artist 100% Silk.
The blue/brown striped version is knit in Kauni Effekt yarn (colour EH).
