Notes

This is so simple and so beautiful. I knit two of these a couple of years ago, started this one, lost the pattern, and put it to sleep. Picked it up this afternoon to finish it and except for needing to find buttons, it’s done and beautiful.

One word of advice -- if you are smaller, consider shortening the mid-section (in between the increases and decreases) to fewer inches than suggested so you can get a nice stretchy wrap. you want this to be about your circumference so that when you add in the buttons it will stretch just a small bit.

Final Note: This yarn grows when you block it. See paragraph above. When I finished this, it was really to short to wrap nicely around like the pattern picture. After gentle blocking, there is more than enough to go around. More aggressive blocking would have been too much. This is a great, rustic wrap. It’s a very easy, yet fun knit. I strongly recommend it. Pictures coming as soon as it’s dry!
