To cast on a scarf, a cowl, or a poncho? Why choose! The Tundra Wrap is a 3-in-1 accessory that can be worn in a multitude of ways by simply buttoning the rectangular shape on different sides. And because the wrap is knit in a bulky weight yarn, it is also a super quick and cozy project to enjoy!

Approximately 150cm (59”) long and 70cm (27 ½“) wide, relaxed after blocking.

The Fibre Co. Tundra (60% alpaca, 30% Merino, 10% silk; 110m {120yds}/100g), 6 skeins Petrel colourway OR approximately 660m (720yds)/600g of similar bulky weight yarn. Please note you will need all 6 skeins of the recommended yarn to complete your project and sew on the buttons. You may wish to have an extra 7th skein of yarn on hand just in case, and to use for swatching.

– 7mm (US 10.5/11) straight or circular needles, OR size to obtain gauge
– 7mm (US K/L) crochet hook, OR comparable size to choice of needle that obtains gauge (used for provisional cast on method)
– 20 x 23mm (1”/US Size 36) round buttons
– Bulky weight waste yarn in a contrasting colour (used for provisional cast on method)
– Tapestry needle
– Tape measure
– Scissors
– Blocking tools (optional–see second Note, below)

11.5 stitches x 16.75 rows = 10cm (4’) in either Lace Pattern 1 or 2 (pages 5–6 of pdf), knit flat and relaxed after blocking.

– This rectangular wrap is worked flat, from the centre outwards. You use a provisional method to cast on at the centre of the rectangle, then work the first half of the wrap outwards. Once completed, the provisional cast on is undone and the live stitches revealed are returned to the needle so you can work the second half of the wrap outwards. As this half is worked, you will also be creating buttonholes along one long side and one short side of the rectangle in the garter stitch selvedge. Lastly, when the wrap is finished and blocked, buttons are sewn onto the garter stitch selvedge to correspond with the buttonholes.

– You may use blocking tools (such as T-pins, blocking wires and mats) for stretching your wrap to desired measurements and shape during wet blocking if you wish, but these tools are not necessarily crucial. The sample was blocked on a flat surface simply by smoothing the fabric out by hand as it dried.
