This wrap was initially created for an online knitting design competition organised by Franklin Habit and Knitty. (results here) It’s main purpose is to highlight the Templeton square and it’s knitted qualities. It’s worked in seven different parts, either in the round or flat, but features no seams: everything is knitted on the go, by picking up stitches.

The main body features variations of the main Templeton motif in order to accommodate the shaping of the garment. And there is a small crochet detail - the border all around the piece.
