The native Australian Correa plant produces beautiful bell flowers in pale pink to deep orange to carmine. These same gorgeous shades in Waratah yarn from Black Wattle Alpaca Yarn and Fibre inspired me to create this airy asymmetrical wrap. Two top-down triangles are worked with simple lace and contrasting garter stitch then are grafted together and finished with an i-cord edge. In bold colours or easy-to-wear neutrals, Correa is geometric and modern, versatile and fun to wear: fold it and wear it close to be cosy in the cool months, or drape it dramatically over your bare shoulders for a special summer wrap.

Both charted and written instructions are provided for the lace.
