This pattern can be found in issue three of Nomadic Knits, which is available to purchase in print through our website and at select local yarn shops, or as a digital download through Ravelry (click the e-book link above).

This wrap is a very easy project, perfect for beginners or for social knitting. Pints and Purls? Yes, please! The worsted weight makes it fly off the needles, and the garter stitch makes it incredibly warm and squishy. Colors 1, 2, and 3 are semi-solids and Color 4 is a speckled delight. Finish the wrap with tassels for a fun accent.
