Designed specifically for the warm yet airy qualities of woolen spun yarn, this generously sized cold weather wrap integrates four fun-to-knit stitch patterns in one traditional triangle. With all stitch patterns based on the number eight, the Octavia Wrap begins with simple punch work, transitions into eyelet diamonds and ends with an intriguing slip stitch pattern that lays over garter stripes. A band of simple ribbing forms the bottom border and is trimmed in a contrast garter edge. This homey three-color project invites color play and engages the knitter with its shifting intuitive stitch patterns.
