Announcing Verb’s newest knitting pattern; the Simpatico Wrap. It’s a large swathe of fabric (depending on the size you choose to knit) that can effortlessly wrap around your neck and shoulders. The Simpatico Wrap is the perfect vehicle to use a wide range of yarns - anything from a lace weight to DK weight - from silk to wool to linen. Use two different yarns to create contrast with color, texture, fiber type, etc. Use two colors of the same yarn, two yarns of the same color - or both!
The Simpatico Wrap is knit on the bias, creating a fabric which elegantly drapes around your neck and shoulders. Knitting fabric on the bias is easy and adds a little oomph to the knitting process. While we want this knit to be easy, we don’t want it to be boring. Plus, you start with one stitch and end with two stitches, so casting on and binding off are easy.
Though this pattern is simple, there is a twist. Once you have knit through your first skein of yarn (or until your desired width), you switch to your second skein of yarn and start purling. So, when you go to wear your new Simpatico, when you fold the square in half to wrap it around your neck, not only do you have an extra-thick luxurious fabric, both ends peeking out will be the knit-side of the fabric. Tres chic!
