Apothecary Wrap


This cotton wrap is so versatile, you will find yourself wearing it all year round. Use it at the beach, with a cocktail dress or as a winter scarf. It’s also a practical choice for those with wool sensitivities.

The lacey pattern is easily memorized making this project a great one for when you want something a bit challenging, but not too hard. It is knit at a fairly drapey gauge.

The wrap is knit in one piece from end to end with a delicate garter edge on the ends and sides and using a worsted weight yarn. This shawl has one size.
