The generously sized Homestead Wrap is cozy enough for one person to wrap up in and big enough for two people to cuddle under during the coldest months. Worked with a center panel of texture and cables and a knit-in-the-round border, this wrap is a graphic investigation of vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines.
