NOTES

  • The center triangle of this trapezoid-shaped wrap is worked from the middle of the top edge down, then the stitches are divided in half for working the bias side extensions separately.
  • A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
  • For the side sections, left and right refer to their positions when the piece is viewed lying flat, right side up, with the wider upper edge at the top. The left section has increases at the beginning of right-side rows and decreases at the end, while the right section has decreases at the beginning of right-side rows and increases at the end.
  • The first time you work Rows 1 and 2 of the Right Mosaic chart, the slipped stitches will be in the main color (MC) because all the held stitches from the center triangle are MC stitches. On subsequent repeats, the slipped stitches of Rows 1 and 2 will be in the contrast color (CC) as shown.
