Notes

The Everyday Wrap is very easy to make. The yarn I used was the correct weight but had 5% elastic in it so it knitted up smaller. I corrected that by casting on 60 stitches instead of the 52 in the pattern. I should have done 70. However, since is was so stretchy, I could stretch the final project to the correct dimensions when I blocked it. (The elastic-y yarn was a pain to work with - I do not recommend it.)

The pattern is so simple, just basically knitting a long rectangle, putting it together, and at the seam picking up the # of stitches you cast on and making the ruffle. The ruffle is stockinette and on every front side, you K1 in front and back, doubling your # of stitches each time.

On Pinterest, one woman made the comment that the ruffle in the pattern should have been bigger so I took the advice and knitted 2 extra rows, doubling the front side row. I love the ruffle.
