Elegant, versatile and lightweight, Otter’s Wake Wrap will easily fit into a suitcase or tote bag, ready to warm your shoulders or neck in any season.

“Otter’s Wake”: The repeating V’s of the eyelet pattern remind me of the ripples formed by otters as they swim in a determinedly straight line towards the shore of the beach in front of my house.

The wrap is a long rectangle, and can be worn as a scarf.

The stitch pattern is rhythmic and intuitive. The V’s flow from edge to edge, from cast-on to bind-off, without interruption.

The original piece was made in Holst Garn Coast. Any fingering weight yarn could be substituted, or even a heavier yarn worked on larger needles to make a very substantial wrap.

The lace pattern is given in written form only; no chart.
