Turntable is a large wrap that utilizes two neutral shades and simple patterning to create a graphic, modern piece. Knit from the top down in garter stitch, evenly spaced increase rows create a shape that is a cross between a crescent and a half-circle – perfect for comfortably enclosing the body when worn. Stripes run like grooves of a record along the surface of the wrap, and spin up and around when the piece is wrapped around the neck like a scarf. All these elements make for a wrap that is suitable for both men and women to wear in a variety of ways.
