This is a wrap with a bit of a difference and many possibilities,“ says Tanja Murray, the designer and dyer behind The Knitting Swede brand. “The ‘ribbons’ weave through the main fabric creating texture and interest. The ribbons can, as shown, be knitted in one colour adding a touch of style, or, if you wish to add some fun, why not use two or three different colours?”
