Bantam is a parallelogram shaped wrap designed specifically for mini sets, or those small leftovers that seem to accumulate in our stash.
Stripes, chevron lace and fast moving colour changes will keep you engaged, while easy shaping allows you to relax and enjoy the colour-play.

Pattern has been tech edited and tested.
