60 inches (152.5 cm) wide across top edge after blocking.
This triangle wrap is worked with a top down construction technique. It uses an extra set of increases at one edge to create its asymmetrical shape. The stitch patterns are reversible. Both stitch patterns are created with knits and purls. The stitch patterns are charted only to assist the knitter in working shaping and the stitch patterns at the same time. The textural stitches work equally well with self-striping and solid yarn colours. Gauge is not critical for this pattern, but the yarn weight and needle size used will affect the finished measurements. Charts use non-standard symbols to simplify the knitting by eliminating the need to mentally reverse stitches. The charts do not create a visual of the stitch pattern. Wrong side rows are indicated with a background colour and are read from left to right.
