I love this reading wrap. Curl up on the couch with a good book and this wrap to keep you warm. At 20″ x 60″, this wrap is larger than a scarf, smaller than an afghan and more functional than a shawl. As a person who is constantly cold, this knitting pattern is right up my alley. You of course could adjust the pattern to fit any yarn you want, but the standard gauge for the pattern is for Aran weight yarn.
I think that this pattern would look great in a pretty heathered wool yarn. I like the burgundy color in this photo, which of course is no surprise to anyone who knows me. I like red!
This wrap pattern is available in hard copy, or for immediate download. That means that if you grab the downloaded version, you could be knitting away in no time. Or, order some yarn to go with it and use the $5 off $15 coupon to make it an extra affordable project.
