This yarn is so squishy, so wooly, so fabulous, that it just begged to be something classic and fun. It called for garter stitch, and a lot of it. I added in a bit of beady slipped stitches, an on-the-bias rectangular shape, and the result is the ideal wrap-yourself-in-wooly-goodness wrap for fall, winter, and beyond. Add a saucy shawl pin, and your shoulders will be toasty as you wander around a fiber festival, or sip hot tea in front of a fire knitting your way through the chilly seasons.
