The Birthday Wrap
This pattern starts with a provisional cast on, so is worked from the centre out. Consisting of mainly garter stitch with leaves growing along its main body, in opposite directions from the centre and with a knitted on leafy edging at each end. The result is a large and elegant oblong garter stitch and lace wrap with frilled lacey ends.
The knitted on edge means that there is very little in the way of casting off. Both chart and written instructions.
Inspiration for this knit came following the success of The Birthday Shawl and the encouragement and support of my lovely mum. She just isn’t the type to wear a triangular shawl, so I thought I’d design a wrap for her using the same lace-edging.
