Wrap it Up:

There are many great basic shapes for wraps and shawls, and the one most people start out with is a plain old rectangle. But just because a shape is basic doesn't mean it has to be boring.

This ribbed wrap is made with a really fun, colorful yarn and an easy stitch pattern with a lot of stretch. Because it's a cotton blend, it's versatile enough to be used for casual or fancier occasions, and the ribbon running through it makes it fun to work with and to wear.

Materials:

  • about 1,000 yards medium weight cotton/acrylic blend of your choice (I used Knit Picks Twist, which has been discontinued)
  • one pair size 7 US knitting needles
  • scissors
  • yarn needle

Gauge

24 stitches and 20 rows per 4 inches (6 stitches and 5 rows per inch) in ribbing. Gauge is not critical.

Size

About 20 inches wide and 60 inches long. Material is very stretchy.

Instructions:

  1. Cast on 120 stitches.
  2. Knit in knit 2, purl 2 ribbing until piece measures 60 inches.
  3. Bind off.
  4. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
