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!
