Envuelto (wrapped in Spanish) is a rectangular wrap with a seamless construction. The shawl is either knit in a luxurious baby alpaca, silk and cashmere lace weight mix or a size smaller in a fingering weight 100% merino yarn. Knit sideways with an I-cord edging it uses all of your yarn and knits easily enough to take anywhere. I‘ve included detailed instructions for both the cast on and the finishing grafting so it‘s a great project for even a beginner knitter. Envuelto is an easy knit that results in a striking and elegant finished piece that will wrap you in a splash of color and luxuriousness.
