Wred Wrap!

See this holey piece of knitting?


When finished and artfully draped about my shoulders, it will be my long-wanted cotton wrap to throw on when I don't want to bother with a sweater or jacket.


Simplicity itself. Using Nature Cotton by Araucania, a Worsted / 10 ply Cotton in Cherry Red, I cast on, did a few garter rows, then kept three garter stitches at the left and right edges. Using stockinette stitch with a row of yarn-over every several rows, I am making an open, light wrap on size 15s. This softly-soft yarn is a thick and thin which adds a nice texture and is very easy on the hands.

In other knitting news, the Sensational Sampler Afghan steams ahead. I am doubling the size of each square in the Lily Chin pattern and added this block of moss stitch just because I like moss stitch. Oatmeal is the color and Berroco Comfort is the yarn for this wedding gift.

My favorite patterns are ones that can be mastered quickly and continued until you reach "desired length". If only all patterns were so. Excellent shawl design!
