River Wrap

$6.00 USD

This long, asymmetrical wrap starts at the wide end and is worked upward, ever decreasing on its way. I felt as though I were knitting a river that narrowed and narrowed until it was finally a trickle at the end. The ribbed cables mean the wrap is reversible and won’t curl.

Note: This pattern also includes a row-by-row worksheet for working the cabled pattern.
