I really love the simple look this cosy textured wrap. It’s infinitely wearable, with just enough detail and interest. The size is just right – not too big, not too small, and elegantly shaped to fit your body (no ‘vee’ in back). The project won’t be too long and you’ll be able to wear it now (or next week, give yourself a week to make it) to keep out the chill of April & Early May showers. I can see it being perfect over a spring coat or as a shoulder warmer around the office.
I think it would look great made with Cascade 220 (I like the heathers, they add an extra depth of colour, but solids would look god too), and you’ll only need about 3 skeins, or 4 if you want to make yours larger. The suggested needles are 4.5mm/US7 but for the Cascade 220 I’d go up to a 5mm/US8 to let the yarn bloom and give the garment a bit more stretch. Plus a bonus, our Cascade 220 is presently on SALE!
