Mereki is a versatile wrap featuring a lacey chevron stitch pattern and contrasting parallel borders. Uniquely shaped to be worn any number of ways, the pattern includes two different sizes – small for a scarf or large for a shawl – providing creative options for style or warmth. The rectangular body gives way to angled ends, shaped with simple increases, and is sure to flatter however you wish to wear it.
This pattern includes both charted and written directions for your convenience.
