Back when I was a wee knitter, I created a design-as-you-go poncho workbook. One of my favorite designs in the book is the “drape” and this quickie pattern is created from that. I’m not reinventing the wheel here, but sometimes yarn is so pretty that it just needs something simple. This wrap goes over the head – think poncho – and has the perfect amount of warmth and drape to be your favorite fall accessory.
The Convergence Wrap is worked in one piece: a long rectangle. You fold the piece in half and seam one side toward the fold to create a neck opening. Voila!
