This sweet shoulder wrap will take you through the fall and winter in style. Knit from Done Roving’s Reclaimed Rainbows, the simple stitch pattern and style take advantage of the shifting color and texture of this special yarn. The main body of the piece is worked flat, and then joined to work the collar in the round. Wear Opera with the open side in the front, over one shoulder, or even in the back, depending on your mood. Drape the collar like a cowl, turn it up or fasten it down with a shawl pin. This is a wrap you can make your signature piece.

The mannequin in the photos is quite petite, so the wrap will hang a little closer on most bodies. If you would like to make the collar circumference smaller to accommodate a smaller body, simply pick up fewer stitches (but make sure you still have an even number).
