Meant to be the perfect, cosy companion for long walks along the shore, Seaside is a beautiful handknit wrap which invites you to embrace the colder months with open arms. The Seaside Wrap features an easy-to-memorise stitch pattern with chevron texture and a few cables – and did you know what makes it extra special? It’s completely reversible! However you like to wear your neck accessories, inside or right-side out, Seaside always shines.

A tweedy yarn like The Fibre Co.’s luxurious Arranmore works beautifully with this design. Or if you‘re eager to try another of their bases or different measurements, you can easily adapt the pattern and make your own customised version.
