Textural stripes splash color across this fun-to-knit accessory. The stitch patterns in this design work especially well with hand-dyed yarns that have lots of contrasting colors in them.
Lightweight but still just the right amount of cozy, this soft and colorful wrap is the perfect accessory and an incredibly interesting knit.
This wrap (or scarf) is made in one piece with at least two colors of fingering weight yarn. An I-cord edge is worked along the edge of the piece. There are three unique stitch pattern that are each repeated three times in the design.
