You’ll feel completely glamorous with very little effort wearing this wrap! This is a beginner’s project with a fun design element. The main stitch pattern is a simple chevron that can be used with any yarn. Finally, a use for those variegated skeins that were an impulse buy! This wrap can be as long or short as desired, and the slits in the wrap allow it to be worn without a pin.
