Combining a modern linear “striping” sequence with a traditional Shetland lace edging, the Patrice Wrap is a gossamer rectangular stole, perfect for dressing up a party frock for a summer wedding or any festive occasion.

Started with a provisional cast on, the wrap is knit using a simple elongated garter stitch pattern, then bound off
by working the Cat’s Paw edging. Finally, the cast on stitches are bound off in the same way. The reversible and easily memorized garter stitch lace patterns are written out, as well as charted. Instructions include an option to add beads to the edging for a bit of extra sparkle.

Techniques Used:

• Knitted Cast-on and Provisional Cast-on over spare circular needle or waste yarn
• Decreases: k2tog, ssk, k3tog tbl
• Increase: M1(make 1), yo
• Knit, double-wrap knit (elongated stitch)
• Slip 1 with yarn in front
• Place bead on a stitch using crochet hook, dental floss threader or other tool then knit the st (optional)
• Elastic Bind-off
