Pattern notes
This slouchy yet structured wrap-igan is formed by fitting a long rectangle comfortably around the body. A long panelled piece is knitted following a rhythmic cable and bobble pattern, from which stitches are then picked up and knitted downward to form the lower back. When back and fronts are joined together with 2x2 rib, a pair of armscyes are formed, which complete the wrap. Worn open or closed with a statement pin, this is a simple yet effortlessly stylish piece.
