I don’t like to fuss when putting on a wrap with looking for the right side. This stitch pattern appealed to me for that reason. It’s not exactly the same on both sides, but it’s almost the same due to the little triangles made up of stocking stitch and reverse stocking stitch. It is reversible since the so called wrong side is equally nice and the only difference is in the columns between the triangles. The pattern is easily memorized and has a nice flow once you get going. Don’t let the 24 row repeat intimidate you, as the rows progress logically, creating the opposing triangles once you get past the first repeat. The edges have a pretty zigzag that adds a feminine touch and the silk content of the yarn makes it drape softly, allowing it to be worn as a scarf as well. The instructions include both a charted and a written version of the stitch pattern, so that you can use whichever format you prefer.
