Don’t Wait Up Wrap Pattern


Inspired by the rich colors of 1960’s fashion and fabrics such as brocade and tapestry, this versatile garment can be worn as a scarf, shawl, cape, or poncho. The simple sequence repeat combines with long color shifts in the yarn to create a complex effect in an easy knit.

The yarn is from Green Mountain Spinnery, a cooperatively-owned woolen mill in Putney, Vermont. We love their woolen-spun yarns for projects that provide warmth without weight.
