Here is a stretch of knitting that is satisfying, easy, and elementally simple. Element uses a single strand of worsted weight yarn to create a rib and ladder fabric that is drapey and soft. Open ladders form a clever changeable buttonhole edge.
Complete the wrap with one stunning button (or use a favorite brooch) and this versatile little wrap will drape over your shoulders with style. Wear it with a tank top and jeans for a jaunt to the ice cream store or think of this as a “dressed up and out to dinner” handknit garment.
We used Serendipity Tweed by Brown Sheep, a 60% cotton/40% wool blend, for this design. Let your taste be your guide as you work with this elementally elegant design. Our sample photo shows Color 84 “Nebraska Wheat.”
