A triangle knit in fingering weight and a square knit in lace weight are included in the pattern. The yardage given is for the fingering weight triangle. Note that the yarn used is very bouncy and elastic, so a larger needle and more yardage were used to make up for bounce-back after blocking. The lace weight version takes about 2250 yards and is knit on a US 6 needle.

Venice is one of my very favorite places on Earth, and, when I was there, filled with lovely fashionable Italian women. In large square scarves draped over winter coats, they strolled across the Ponte di Rialto and through the Piazza San Marco. Those brief crisp autumn days spent in Venice kindled a love of wraps that is still with me today. This wrap harkens back to those days: getting lost in the alleyways of Venice, eating seafood risotto, and sitting at cafes. Wear it in style!
