Sort of Silent Wrap

If you were to knit only one upper body cover this year, it should be this! It can be worn at least 9 different ways and only your imagination sets the limits!


Like a scream, but sort of silent.


Personally I love wraps like this! It’s adjustable so you can can wrap it around only one part of you body, if your shoulders are freezing, wrap it around them, if your arms are cold, just put them in the sleeves and let the rest hang freely… You get the idea! You can cover up your insecurities with it and highlight the the best in you.

Notions

Cables are the thing here, they add just enough elegance for the wrap so you can wear it with your best party gown at your best friends wedding but not too much for it to be a limited to special occasions only.

The wrap is knitted as one piece.

Work the ribbing on the lower edge of the body first, then the body.

The length for sleeves are added by casting on new stitches, and this will create the seam of the sleeve.

After the sleeves have reached their full length and width, the same amount of stitches that were cast on are bound off.

The bind off edge makes the other sleeve seam which is then seamed together with the seam from the sleeve cast on made earlier. The edges of the rib sections are seamed together as well.

All the seams are marked with red dotted lines in picture above.

Stitches for the cuffs are picked up from the slip stitches of the sleeve ends, working 30 rounds of rib.
