Life isn’t a list of bullet points; you have to connect the dots.

The Making Connections Wrap is a textured wrap with a styling loop, symmetrical shape, with mirrored motifs on each side of the chevron.

The unique construction and shape creates so many styling options! I have long envied how others effortlessly style their knitwear, and this wrap with the styling loop is my solution. You instantly have Wraptitude: Wrap + Aptitude. Each week I will post a video of another way to style the wraps in this collection!

In addition to the ease of styling, this wrap is inspired by the connections we make, through crafting, on Ravelry, or even while KALing. The styling loop is the metaphorical dot that makes the connection with the rest of the wrap when styling. This wrap has a symmetrical shape, with sections alternating between stripes and many different textures, as well as 1 color and 2 color sections.

Grab 2 skeins of yarn, join the KAL and make a connection with this wrap!
