This wrap is worked by starting from one narrow point. The stitches increase on one side and decrease at a much slower rate on the opposite edge. This method creates a shallow asymmetrical triangle with one extra-long point to wrap around your neck or pin into place. It’s an easy knit, suitable for any knitter who is comfortable working simple shaping. The stripes are worked in a reversible textural stitch. All rows but one in the pattern repeat are worked as all knit stitches. The pattern provides a straightforward three colour version, as well as enough detail to use it as a base for a stash busting version. The picot stitch on all edges allows for easy finishing, providing a place to bury ends when working with multiple colours

Circular needles are required for this design to create the reversible, three colour, garter stitch patterning.

To maintain fabric drape at the cast off edge, a larger size needle is recommended for the cast off row.

When using the pattern as a stash buster, multiple yarn weights can be combined. Choose the needle size recommended for the heaviest weight yarn. Striping patterns can be worked randomly to accommodate unequal yardages of different colours.
