This convertible garment is armored with several woolly pleats. The curved shape is made with two identical halves that each begin at the armhole and increase to the center back. Garter stitch short rows are accompanied by stockinette stitch welts so most of the garment consists of knit stitches except for one purl round in each short row section. Select a main color for the color B garter stitch and four accent colors for the welts. Imagine choosing a rainbow of colors or try a simpler two-color version. The resulting garment shape is a fun and easy thow-on layer that you can also wear upside down.
Pattern is written in one size. Different sizes can be achieved by knitting more or less short row repeats and trying on the piece as you knit. Smaller repeats could result in a more cropped shrug type of garment and more repeats will create a larger drapey cardigan/wrap.
