Elementary Wrap In Simply Camel
A yarn like Simply Camel doesn’t come along every day, so when it does, we like to give it some room to be its unadulterated self!
One hundred percent undyed baby camel, Simply Camel is so absolutely soft and luscious, all that is required is stockinette stitch and lots of it… Enter the Elementary Wrap!
A great swath of knit 1 row, purl 1 row, with a tidy edge detail, our Elementary Wrap In Simple Camel is remarkably simple but stunningly beautiful. It drapes and swings; it’s voluminous and elegant, soft and cuddly.
You’ll need four skeins for a 10-inch wide scarf or seven for the 18-inch wrap shown here. Either way, cast on for this soothingly simple, simply gorgeous knit!
