Selena Double Chevron Wrap is an oversized wrap that can be worn as a blanket-scarf, wrap, shawl, or synched at the waist with your favorite belt. It is light and airy enough to be worn (almost) year-round and will make the ultimate addition to your hand-knit wearable art.

You can guarantee that Selena will always fit. If you shy-away from large projects because they may or may not fit in the future, put that fear to rest with this large oversized wrap that is designed to drape beautifully on any body-type. This accessory will be a primary piece in your wardrobe for many seasons.

Without modifications Selena measures 20 inches wide and 96 inches long at her points (76 inches long at her top and bottom edges)

Selena’s design features a short row section mid-way through the wrap (bot not quite centered) which creates a chevron tip at each end. It is worked from one end to the other with instructions that will help you use every yard to get the most out of your yarn. The pattern is also easily adjustable for both length and width as it is written to be asymetric in length and pattern instructions will help you adjust for width if desired.

Each stripe of color uses a corresponding lace pattern and garter sections separate each color throughout the pattern.
