This unusually shaped wrap utilizes my favorite center back panel treatment, this time with wide, half-circular side panels. The overall effect is of wings which are anchored beautifully by the intricate leafy cables at the back. Interestingly, the combination of shaping techniques produces a wrap that will stay put where it is supposed to, and feels wonderfully generous to wear.

Subtly textured in reverse stockinette stitch with beaded accents and with a minimalist feel, this wrap is warm and light as air. The beads, which are placed with the crochet hook method, add weight where it is needed and reveal glints of treasure hidden in the leaves which circle the bottom edge.
