Elementary Wrap In Morning
When we get our hands on a particularly special yarn, our first impulse is to cast on an Elementary Wrap to enjoy its splendor. As expected, this simplest of knits is absolutely lovely in Morning and feels as fresh as a bird’s chirp through an open window!
This beautiful swath of stockinette stitch is the perfect thing to wrap around yourself in the glow of the rising sun. Soft and sturdy, with a lovely hand, you might just keep the Elementary Wrap in Morning with you throughout the day!
You can make the wrap shown here with five skeins of Morning or a scarf version with only three. This machine washable mix of 75% organically grown cotton and 25% yak comes in a lovely rainbow of soft bright hues, so pick your favorite up-with-the-sun color and cast on!

I was reading the pattern and it suggests 3 skeins and then (5) skeins in parentheses? As I am a beginner, which amount of yarn should one purchase to make this scarf (wrap)?
I have found the edge of the wrap rolls up even after 10 rows. Is it supposed to do this or can you tell me how to correct this?
I was wondering if I could make this pattern (wrap) using a lace weight yarn such as the Sweetgrass Fine?
Would this work with something worsted, like in Maxima merino wool? I’m thinking of doing something like this with variegated yarn.
I love your yarns and patterns.
I have a problem. I bought enough yarn for the scarf in morning yarn but I wanted to make the wrap. I will need two more skeins of dungarees blue. If I order these they will not be in the same color lot, right. The color lot I received is 7G1154.
What do you recommend?
Thanks for your help.
I made the elementary wrap, with the selvage edge, but,it’s still curling. do you have a suggestion? I did block it.
I have been looking for a scarf or wrap in something other than garter or lace so this is great! I’d like to use my four skeins of Good Wool. That should be fine for the wrap, right?
