Named for the Japanese form of the Morning Glory, this wrap is all about the twining cables and twisted stitches that work their way from end to end.
A classic rectangular stole worked in a heavier weight yarn than one would usually use for lacy cables, this stole is complex, but will work up quickly due to the weight.
Two complimentary cables are worked side-by-side in stripes on a reverse stockinette background, with seed stitch borders up each side to keep the design from rolling in.
This design will give you a hug and keep you warm.
If you are feeling adventurous, why not double the width and make a cozy blanket of it? Just remember to buy double the yarn ;-).

About the Designer: Janine Le Cras
I learned to knit at my grandmother’s knee at the age of about 7 and knitted right through school and up until my children got to an age where they refused to wear hand knits. I started knitting again seriously after a hiatus of about 10 years. Then I discovered the online knitting community. Knitting on a small island in the middle of the English Channel can be rather lonely.
Thanks to the Internet I have rediscovered my knitting mojo, learned to spin, acquired a stash (both yarn and fibre), bought a wheel and started designing in earnest – not necessarily in that order.
Since then I have been fortunate enough to have designs accepted by several publishers. I have designed for Magknits, Knotions, and Yarn Forward and have had patterns published in several books including Knitting in the Sun, The Joy of Sox, and Sock Club.
I enjoy a wonderful working relationship with the Girls at the Unique Sheep and have designed several things showcasing their yarns including our ongoing series of lace shawl Mystery KALs inspired by classic children’s books.
I also have many designs available on Ravelry, and also a few now available via KCDesigns, ready to knit in the Knit Companion app.
