Wanderlust Wrap is a playful oversized cowl /wrap…

This piece is worked flat as with a shawl until the final seaming step which creates a neck hole and allows this wrap to be worn over the head as with a cowl. The oversized nature of this wrap allows for versatility with styling.

Wanderlust Wrap features a variety of playful texture sections of garter stitch, slip stitch and eyelets, while flowing through continuous color shifts throughout.

Pattern Details
There are two design style & size options for the Wanderlust Wrap:
Design Style A provides a slightly smaller finished size and is designed to be worked in (1) full skein of fingering weight yarn plus (5) mini skeins.
Design Style B begins with only a handful of stitches and is worked to a longer finished length prior to seaming, creating a larger finished wrap with a more oversized fit. Design Style B is designed to be worked in (3) full size skeins of fingering weight yarn.

Separate pattern PDFs are provided for each Design Style.

For both design styles: Part I is worked by holding a single strand of fingering weight yarn for each row and Part II is worked by holding the yarn double (two strands together) for each row.
Color transitions occur throughout both parts. Follow the color changes as noted or for more of a stash-busting wrap work the color transitions however often you’d like.
