Running Railroads Wrap pattern is a bottom up wrap design. There are two different styles: a more traditional, triangle shaped wrap, or a long, skinny, scarf style. Both styles are started at the bottom, and each row is increased - the difference in increase rates makes the difference in the two styles. Either style can be made any size, using any gauge, though I recommend using at least a DK weight yarn.

Pattern is rated easy, and uses mainly double crochet stitches.
