    • Knitting pattern for graphic garter stitch shawl/wrap
    • Schematic, in-progress photos, and row-by-row instructions included
    • Suitable for advanced beginners

    Pattern measurements: only inches
    Pattern paper format: only US letter


    Three colors of fingering weight yarn are used to create a bent rectangular wrap full of stripes and angles. The slight bend makes it curve nicely around your shoulders. It’s not nearly as complicated to make as it looks - just one color at a time and some short rows and decreases here and there. Instructions are given line-by-line and can simply be checked off as you go.

    Skills needed: long-tail cast-on, decreasing, short rows, picking up stitches (for side borders only)

    Finished measurements: see schematic in photos

    Gauge: 22 stitches and 44 rows to 10 cm in lightly blocked garter stitch

    Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
