I started knitting a wrap in a simple pattern.You may use any yarn you choose, I picked a part mohair yarn that I had alreadyhad it wasPatons Devine(it is a wool/acrylic/poly blend (in pink) that I hadbought for a baby blanket who turned out to be a boy)Use needles approx. twice the size recommended on the label of your yarn, myyarn recommended size 10 us needles and I used 17.Amount: I used three skeins, which was plenty long with some left, at 142 yd's perball or around 400 yards needed.Recommended to knit a swatch and measure, remember your lace will stretch.If you are a tight knitter, and don't like the look of your swatch. Use largerneedles, you may also yo twice in row 4 (knit, yo, yo, knit continue.....)Play around then when you are happyCast on 50 stitches ( 40 if using bulky yarn or you want your wrap shorter)row 1 knitrow 2 knitrow 3 knitrow 4 *knit, yo* repeatrow 5 knit, drop all yo's from previous rowrepeat rows 2-5 until your piece is long enoughOr make it a little longer as I did, Ihate to waste yarn, andjoin the endsat a point, to create a poncho look.
You may also just throw it on, and use a shawl pin. This is a beautiful on Etsy byIrishfiddlers shopclose up of patternback of shawl, or you can wear it to the side or frontPic is in a different pattern, see below
