Our Open Air Wrap loves a yarn with personality! The original version, in Habu’s crispy Silk Wrap Paper, was a bit sculptural, a bit outside-of-the-box. And now in Linen Quill, the Open Air Wrap reveals a whole other side, one that is soft and voluminous, refined and classic.
With a grand total of one repeating line, this pattern, aka the Purse Stitch, could hardly be simpler. Its open lace structure is so speedy that your Wrap will be done in time for your next summer wedding, vacation, or beach bonfire!
All you need to get started are two skeins of Purl Soho’s Linen Quill. A distinctive blend of alpaca, merino, and linen, Linen Quill is lightweight and gorgeous, just right for an Open Air Wrap!
- 2 skeins of Purl Soho’s Linen Quill, 50% fine highland wool, 35% alpaca, and 15% linen. We used the colors Stonewall Gray and Lavender Opal.
- US 5 straight or circular needles
Stonewall Gray is cool and sophisticated, but we love these colors too!
