Textiles serve a variety of functions in nomadic farming households; this simple rectangular piece is a good example—one design that can be configured as a warm scarf, wrap, baby blanket, or lap robe, showcasing both a beautiful rustic yarn and luscious cabled detail. This piece knits up super fast on larger needles; without a lot of fussy details, it is the perfect vehicle for chunky handspun yarns, special fibers, or learning how to cable. This piece could also be felted for use as a rug if desired (felting instructions not included).

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape
