Crepe Myrtle Wrap was designed in collaboration with Loop London Yarn store company and is launched on November 15, 2019 during their pop-up store event in New York City, NY, and concurrently in their London location.

The dimensional texture of the Crepe Myrtle Wrap can be created using Brioche or Tuck method (both available in the pattern directions). In Olga’s words:“I have been knitting on the pink version wrap, which reminded me of the crepe myrtle trees in varieties of colors that bloom all summer in the area where I live”.
