Life is an emotional roller coaster, so enjoy the dramatic swings!

The Dramatic Swing Wrap is a 2 color wrap with a styling loop, an asymmetrical crescent shape and alternating motifs on each side of the chevron.

The unique construction and shape creates so many styling options! I have long envied how others effortlessly style their knitwear, and this wrap with the styling loop is my solution. You instantly have Wraptitude: Wrap + Aptitude. Each week I will post a video of another way to style the wraps in this collection!

In addition to the ease of styling, this wrap is inspired by the dramatic dichotomy of emotions we all experience. There are moments of pure bliss, and sheer sadness; so rather than worry about what is up next, we should just enjoy the ride! This wrap has a dramatic asymmetrical crescent shape with alternating thick color blocks and thin garter stripes on each side. 2 colors are alternated thorough out, with one side of the chevron expanding and shrinking to create the crescent shape.

Grab 2 colors, and enjoy knitting and wearing this wrap through the dramatic swings of life.
