Simple garter stitch keeps the focus on the shaping in this project. The wrap is worked sideways creating a curved upper edge. It’s easy to wear and perfect for wrapping around your neck. Starting from one narrow point, the stitches increase on one edge and decrease on the opposite edge creating a series of triangles. The cast off edge works a separate series of triangles along the second side of the curved triangular shape. The pattern includes extra details to assist the knitter with yarn substitutions.

Skills required – Any cast on, knit, purl, decreases, increases, casting off.
