Xanthe Wrap is an invitation to play. Choose a trio of colours
to express your style, the varations are endless; stripe two
neutrals and add a lace colour pop, or keep it neutral for a classic look. Use your wildest speckle yarn striped with a solid and co-ordinating lace colour for something as fun to knit as it is to wear. The stretches of garter stitch make this a perfect project for travel or mindless knitting while beautiful lace keeps it interesting.
Xanthe is knit on the bias which results in a rhomboid shape; it is easy to wear and will fast become a wardrobe staple.

Pattern includes fully written instructions accompanied by a chart for the lace section.
