Notes: Hecate is a parallelogram-shaped wrap, worked in two pieces towards the centre, and joined in the middle with a 3-needle cast off. Each piece begins with an i-cord tab and increases at one edge to make the points of the parallelogram, and then worked without increases to create the centre of the wrap.
The moon motifs are worked in stripes of yarn B, which can be loosely carried up the i-cord by twisting the yarns together at the beginning of every RS row. After both pieces are joined together, stitches are picked up along the two long edges and the edging is worked in yarn B. The cast off includes bobbles, worked every two charted pattern repeats, to line up with the moon motifs.
