I love the spirit of adventure Spring brings and the optimism of the 50s which inspired this beautiful wrap full of possibilities.

Spring Stole My Heart is reminiscent of a 50s stole with a fun “atomic” stitch pattern in vibrant green to welcome Spring.

The wrap can be worn different ways such as across the back and shoulders, around the neck like a scarf, over the shoulders like a shawl, draped loose or secured with a shawl pin, making it versatile and useful all throughout the unpredictable British Spring.

Hints and tips
You can use any aran yarn, I think it would be lovely worked up in aran cotton.

When working the starting chain, place stitch markers every 20 or 30 chains to help you keep count.
It is worth blocking your finished project to relax the yarn and give an even, smooth finish to your wrap. Soak the wrap in lukewarm water, remove and gently roll in a towel to remove excess water, pin out on blocking mats and allow to air dry.
