The Practice Yoga Wrap provides lots of options, both for interesting knitting and flattering appearance. The A-line wrap is worked seamlessly from the top down in simple Stockinette stitch, with two length options and instructions for top down or bottom up sleeve construction.

Originally designed to wear going to and from yoga class, the Practice Yoga Wrap’s yoke and sleeves are standard fitting, while the body has swing and drape to wrap around the body with 10”-15” positive ease.

The wrap is designed to use two weights of the same yarn. The body is knit in fingering weight yarn at a loose gauge on larger needles to provide drape, while the yoke and armholes are worked in a DK/light worsted weight for fit and structure. Optionally, the yoke can be worked in the fingering weight yarn doubled.
