Morning! In response to a few e-mails and comments I’ve gotten about the wrap I was wearing on this week’s charity episode of Knitty Gritty, I thought I’d post the info. Last year I did a crazy amount of traveling and wanted some kind of quick-to-make wrap to keep me warm on the plane (this was pre-travel wrap design for Knit.1). I have tons of single sample balls of yarn that I’m always looking for a use for, so I decided to go through my stash and find several in the same color palette. This finished project was this funky but simple, feather & fan stole. I can’t find an actual picture from the set but for those of you who missed Knitty Gritty, here’s an old picture of me wearing the wrap so you know what I’m talking about.
Here’s the scoop on how to make one yourself!
OH, SCRAP! WRAP
