Here’s a wrap to knit while reading my novel, Rogue Wave, or just to evoke the free-flow spirit of the ocean, if you’d rather not read a mystery. You may even be able to knit and read at the same time, though I’ve yet to manage that.

In any case, I hope you dive into this project in the spirit in which it’s offered: as an exploration of free-range knitting where no rules exist. Allow yourself to flow with the yarn, creating drop stitch waves amid garter stitch however you wish until you reach your desired length. This design can be made to any size as either a wrap or a light scarf.

Stitches form undulating waves cross the piece like the roll of the deep Atlantic. Here’s an adventure with no fixed address, no shorelines of do this or do that. Just launch and see where it takes you. Though I’ve used predominantly garter and drop stitch, feel free to add rifts of feather & fan, or other favorite stitches used according to whim. The idea is to keep this wrap moving with motion and spirit.

KNITALONG BEGINS APRIL 16th IN THE JANE THORNLEY GROUP AND ON MY WEBPAGE. ROGUE WAVE, the novel, is available on Amazon and all other online bookstores.
