You know when you’re on a trip & you realize that you’re cold & didn’t pack enough layers so you buy something out of need & it becomes one of your favorite pieces? That happened to me in New York, except instead of buying a jacket I bought some super bulky yarn & knit this lovely wrap up real fast. And now I never take it off! It’s an incredibly simple pattern that produces a gorgeous result of cables, lace, & moss stitch. You can whip one up in an afternoon! Perfect for gift knitting, & the first patten in my 2017 Gift Knitting Guide.
