Pascaline is a cozy stockinet wrap for understated elegance in any season. Work it in bulky wool, linen tape, or even a laceweight yarn with a halo of mohair for different effects. Geometric shaping is achieved with short rows and a cabled edge adds subtle detail. The wrap’s construction makes it easy to work a kite-shaped panel of any size in a contrast color, as in the sample above.

Directions are given for bulky, worsted, and laceweight gauges to achieve a 55” wingspan 18-20” deep at the center point. The pattern can be easily customized to work with any yarn.

Samples were knit in Cascade Cloud (6 skeins), Woolfolk FAR (7 skeins), and Quince and Co. Piper (3 skeins).
