Have you been envious of your friends because they are knitting a popular design of unusual construction in multiple colors? Then, perhaps Isla is for you. It begins at one point and increases on both sides while at the same time decreasing in the center. Then, it changes--increasing on one side only and decreasing in the center. It also has lacy rows to change things up and keep you interested in the project. The result is a wrap that allows for fun color changing, customizing, and experimentation. You have 2 sizes and yarn weights to choose from and 2 files to work with. Recipe ideas are also included.
