Notes

Construction

You will cast on the length of the wrap and work in pattern to create the width.

Slip Stitches

Slip all stitches purlwise with yarn in front unless pattern indicates otherwise.

Stripes

You will switch between Yarn A and Yarn B every 2 rows. In order to avoid weaving in too many ends, carry the yarn up the selvage of the work.

Pattern

With Yarn A, cast on 468 stitches. NOTE: When casting on so many stitches, we recommend placing a stitch marker (or piece of scrap yarn) every 50 stitches. That way, if (when!) you lose count, you don’t have to count from the very beginning of the row. Remove the markers as you work the first row.

Set-Up Row (wrong side): With Yarn A, knit to end of row.

Row 1 (right side): Slip 1 (see Notes), with Yarn B, knit to end of row.

Row 2 (wrong side): Repeat Row 1.

Row 3: Slip 1, with Yarn A, knit to end of row.

Row 4: Repeat Row 3.

Repeat Rows 1-4 until piece measures 18 inches from cast-on edge, ending with Row 2.

With Yarn A, bind off loosely knitwise.

Weave in ends and block gently.
