Lovely when worn draped over the shoulders or wrapped around the neck, the gently curved crescent wrap Emma features an updated version of an hierloom edging pattern. Based on garter stitch throughout, Emma looks good on both sides – so you don’t need to worry about wearing the wrap with the “wrong side” showing.

Unless you want a wrap exactly the same size as the sample, matching gauge isn’t crucial. Choose a needle size that gives you a fabric you like.

Emma’s edging is knit first, as one long strip. Then stitches are picked up from the edging’s straight edge, and the rest of the wrap is shaped with short rows and decreases. If you want to create a wrap longer or shorter than the sample, you can knit more or fewer repeats of the edging, and pick up more or fewer stitches to match.

This wrap pattern presents its edging stitch pattern in written form, and as a grid-free stitch map. Visit Stitch-Maps.com for more information on stitch maps, or to view the edging pattern as an interactive stitch map with row guides, column guides, and other viewing options.
