This pattern has been revised to as of August 2020. The current version is V1.1.

This long rectangular wrap is designed to make the most of a precious 150g skein of fingering weight BFL yarn! I love Sam’s color sense, and I was excited to find out she was carrying this base in her shop. I am excited to share this with you-- a little SOMETHING EXTRA to layer on your shoulders.

This garter stitch wrap is knit at a relatively open gauge, and uses the better part of a 150g skein of fingering weight BFL, plus just about all of a 20g mini skein in a fun coordinating color. It can be worn as a scarf, a cowl, or a stole. The 4 holes can be used to secure the piece around your neck or shoulders, or even as simple places to put your wrists and hold the piece in place.

Skills: provisional cast on, knit stitch, picking up stitches, using waste yarn to hold live stitches, icord bind off, magic loop (or other small diameter knitting method), stretchy bind off

Recommended: have a gram scale handy to weigh your yarn to make sure you use the right amount of yarn!

This is a beginner friendly project, and showcases hand-dyed yarn.
This project has been technically edited and test knit.
