Your favorite sweater has been re-designed! The pattern now includes an extra PDF that has a cardi and a jacket version; it also includes a lace front option. Also new are the various sizes (the original PDF only had two sizes). When you purchase the pattern, you will get the Original Wrapped-About PDF AND the Re-Wrapped-About PDF. :-)
Be it Barney’s or the Dollar Mart, Rich Housewife or struggling single mom. Stay fashionably wrapped while you’re out and about. The only requirement for this pattern is the wearer MUST be GROWN AND SEXY!
Notes: This wrap is knit sideways, with the two halves meeting in the center back. Elizabeth Zimmerman’s
“thumb trick” is used to insert scrap yarn where the sleeves go. Later, this yarn is removed, the stitches are
picked up and the sleeves are knit down in the round.
Gauge: 5 sts and 7 rows = 1” in stockinette and size US 7 (4.5mm) needles; 3.5 sts and 6 rows = 1” in lace pattern and size US 8 (5mm) needles
Yarn: Dragonfly Fibers Traveller, 100% merino, 280 yds/100g per skein, shown here in Ruby, Ruby colorway:
• X-Small/Small: 3 (5) skeins
• Med/Large: 4 (6) skeins
• 1X/2X: 4 (7) skeins
• 3X/4X: 6 (9) skeins
Sizes: Please refer to schematic for more specific measurements and to choose the size that best suits your needs. Note that if you choose the lace option, the garment fronts will be longer than the back. Jacket fronts are slightly wider than Cardi fronts. Jacket armholes are also deeper than Cardi. Jacket sleeves are longer and have an optional thumb hole so sleeves act as handwarmers. Jacket is meant to be layered over a thick sweater. Shown here in Jacket size 3X/4X as I love large, snugly garments and I plan to wear this over a thick hoodie. I usually wear a size 1X/2X. Fits bust sizes:
• X-Small/Small: 28-34 inches
• Med/Large: 36-42 inches
• 1X/2X: 44-50 inches
• 3X/4X: 52-58 inches
