…I also remember my father setting his watch … a watch that was sleeping quietly in one of my dad’s drawers…
..Je me souviens aussi de mon père réglant sa montre… sa montre qui dormait tranquillement dans un de ses tiroirs…

The Pocket Watch wrap is worked flat from end to end in one piece. Includes instructions for selvedge stitches that give the wrap a
nice finish along the sides.
This is a very simple wrap but very classy, timeless I would say. Knitted in alpaca makes the wrap very flowy and drapey and at the
same time with a nice weight and warm for those cold days. Since it has a nice generous size, you can wrap it around your neck
several times and wear it as a big nice cowl or knot it around your neck with long tails.
It also has a nice pocket with stripes inside of it, I love details !!! You can leave the pocket the way it is or you can add the cute
Pocket Watch. Or you can wear it some days with Pocket Watch and others without it.
