Simplicity is the secret to the Belfast Wrap, it is an accessory that will go with absolutely everything! Perfect for an afternoon at the cinema or perhaps a night out at the pub. The main body is knit in the lovely stockinette stitch, which makes it a great portable project as well as a great base to play with colours, use your imagination! Looking for a challenge? The lace border is picked up from the side of the main body, adding more visual interest to the whole of the shawl. Weather you want a bit of a challenge as a beginner knitter or a project that will relax those of you with experience, the Belfast Wrap will not disappoint!

Pattern is fully charted with written instructions included and has been both tested and Tech Edited.
