Wrapped garments are pieces that never go out of style and are so easy to wear and the Thistle Wrap is no exception. It is a cozy cardigan that will stand the test of time. The cropped silhouette is great for layering over dresses or for pairing with high-waisted skirts. Bust darts and set-in sleeves ensure the perfect fit. Knit in soft, hazy Alaska, you’ll love knitting this piece as much as you’ll love wearing it.

The waistband is worked first. Removable markers are placed into the waistband to guide you as you pick up stitches for the body. Then the body sts are picked up from the waistband and knit from the bottom up. The sleeves are knit in the round from the bottom up in this pattern, work all slipped stitch purlwise unless otherwise noted.
