For accessibility this pattern is available from my etsy shop and Payhip shop. You are sure to be admired when you wear or give this wrap as a gift. It looks very complicated, so do not tell the secret of how simple it is to make. Slipped stitches, just one color at a time in ever row, and no extra ends to weave in. A wrap that is as relaxing to knit as a sipping a cup of Wild Mountain tea.

Notes are included in the pattern for making the center of the wrap wider.

3/8 inch small gauge loom with 55 pegs. (A 1/2 inch or 5/8 inch gauge loom may be substituted.)

The total yardage is divided in two. The sample used 230 yards each of Stonehedge Fiber Mills Shepherd’s Wool Worsted in Raspberry and Pink.

Wild Mountain is from the e-book “Small Shawls and Tea Parties: Seven shawls to make small, or large, and the recipes they inspired”. The e-book comes with two files, a large print 24 point font plain text version with 100 pages, and a 12 point font paper-saver version with 45 pages. A photo gallery, schematics, and recipes for a tea party are included. Files are screen reader, tablet and e-reader friendly.

My patterns are low vision and screen reader accessible. The text is black, Arial and large print 24 point font. All of the directions are fully written out and no charts are relied on to complete the patterns. No italics are used.
